Fun Day – May 2015

This year we held on Fun Day on Saturday 16th May.  The sun shone and there were smiles all round. Over 30 volunteers along with staff helped to support the event.  Entertainment included Merlin the Magician, Teignbridge Tae-Kwon Do and Footlights Dance Academy.  The grand finale was a dog show sponsored by Teign View Vets and ‘All Under One Woof’.  On the day the event raised £1956.00 which will help us to continue to provide much needed services to the elderly, frail and isolated in the Teignbridge area.

Easter – April 2015

Over the Easter period our fundraising volunteers knitted over 1600 chicks!  They were then sold in local hospitals, doctors surgeries and shops in Dawlish, Teignmouth, Shaldon and Bishopsteignton.  We raised £1,600 which will contribute towards the purchase of a second Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.  Pictured is Jane Winston, a Transport Co-Ordinator Volunteer, who knitted over 350 chicks.
