It is with sadness that we tell you of Viv’s death. She was secretary to the Friends of and a good friend to many.
We will miss her enormously and send condolences to her family.
Christmas is coming
Many of you are kind and find presents for residents at Christmas time.
We will be wrapping presents and creating pamper hampers on Wednesday 20th December from 10.00 am for the rest of the morning.
If you do have anything for these, please can you contact Sara Jacson to organise delivery/collection.
Refuge is almost full:
There have been a number of move-ons recently, but as soon as any flat becomes available (which might mean staff do the decorating!)
there is another family waiting for safety. Friends of the Refuge help towards removal expenses often at very short notice.
We do what we can to make life simple!
Friends of the Refuge
Need some help. We are a small committee with meetings about every 8 weeks to plan activities which will ensure our funds are available.
Do you have time and a heart to help others?
Committee sounds very serious, but we aren’t – we meet over coffee/tea, include at least one staff member and work co-operatively.
It would be so good to have a chat and see if you would like to join us. Please do make contact with me by email.
If you would like to be notified of events in support of the Refuge please email email@example.com
We hope to celebrate 25 years of The Friends in 2025 – watch this space!
