Thank you to Lisa Ellis & Sam Burgess from Bournemouth and Poole College City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Travel & Tourism for fundraising for us. They held 3 set lunches in the Brasserie Restaurant at Lansdowne. They also ran a raffle. The whole event raised £321.00. Thank you so much. The students and staff were fantastic and the food was amazing!
We have been lucky enough to be chosen as one of the three charities in the next launch of the blue token scheme at Tesco. Please support us and pop a token in. This will run in July and August – in the following stores:-
“Your project along with the other two successful projects in your region will go forward to a vote in Tesco stores where their customers will decide the outcome by voting for their favourite project each time they shop. Voting will take place from Sunday 1st July to Friday 31st August 2018 and we will notify you at the end of September 2018 confirming the amount of funding you will receive.
The project with the highest number of votes across your region will receive £4,000 (or the amount that was requested up to this value), the second placed project £2,000 (or the amount that was requested up to this value), and the third placed project £1,000. To re-iterate, if you are first in the vote, you will receive the amount that you requested in your application.
Please see below a list of stores taking part in the voting on your project. Feel free to share this list of stores amongst your supporters and within your community.

Thank you to Waitrose Winton for our cheque for £250.00, following their recent token scheme. This will be used to purchase baby equipment for the new mums we are currently supporting
We get referrals for an average of 4-5 food shops per week. Due to food price increases, this is costing us more and more to provide these. 4com contacted us and generously offered to donate one weekly food shop for every phone system they sold in a week.
Last week, the 4Com Foundation were supporting Ashley’s Birthday Bank by linking sales performance with charitable giving.
We are pleased to announce that we will be providing a week’s grocery shop to 30 families who are supported by the charity, helping to make a difference to others locally.
Thank you so much to the Louis Ross Foundation for donating £2000 of Primark vouchers to us!! These will be given to older children in poverty, victims of neglect, human trafficking and domestic violence. They can then choose their own clothes and furnishing for their rooms. They will also be used for parents to buy items of school uniform etc. This will make a huge difference to their self esteem and enable them to move forward with their lives.
The grand total is in from LUSH UK Bournemouth – they sold an amazing £567.35 of the Charity Pot product for us at their store over the weekend. Thank you to all the lovely staff and your generous customers. We really appreciate your ongoing support.

They are also running a raffle and the raffle will be drawn on 18th May at the lunch. Thank you so much!
