Some of our amazing Fundraising Partners and Heroes
We have enjoyed a wonderful year of support from Sainsburys Dorridge this past year and we are very happy to still be working with them even though we are not their supported charity! We are very grateful for this ongoing support – it makes such a difference :) We will be in store with a bag pack event nearer Christmas – and the SoLO Choir will be there as well – the date for your diary is Friday 22nd December!
With huge thanks to all those who supported us by voting us as one of the recipient causes for LoveBrum, we are now the proud owners of an interactive whiteboard which we are using on our Daylight and Evolve projects to support our members to make choices and to have more control over their own lives.
We are delighted to be working with Prime Accountants who are kindly supporting us currently. They have already held a sponsored Firewalk event and supported the Cirque du SoLO ball with a table. We look forward to a fruitful time.
Four Ashes Golf Centre, Dorridge is supporting us – they came to the Ball and are promoting us at their events – which is wonderful. Next one up is the evening of 28th November – a Ladies Christmas sale – watch this space for more detail…..
