Typical british summer!
BDO 2013 – one to remember!
it was amazing that so many people braved the weather to support our community festival, with locally produced beer and bread; crafts and therapies; as well as cake making competitions, sporting activities and charity stalls like ours and a great line up of local bands, music and dancing.
The organisers at Furzedown community network did a really great job! Events like this are so important and are a great place for us raise money for our three local charities – MNDA, St George’s Hospital and The Furzedown Project.
and thanks to The Furzedown Pub who supplied much needed refreshments!
We are really looking forward to raising money and supporting The Furzedown Project on Moyser Road.
For nearly 40 years The Project on Moyser Road has been helping to overcome social isolation amongst older people in our area, by providing a meeting place and lots of activities like swimming, crafts and yoga. As well as befriending the housebound, home visits, assisted transport and day trips out.
Supporting local people between 60 and 95+ the Project is open 10am – 4pm weekdays, the Project is run with 2 full time staff, 2 part time staff and lots of volunteers.
With so many elderly people a defibrillator would be a great asset to have available if someone has a heart attack and we hope to raise enough money this year to buy one.
