We are very grateful to Sainsburys Dorridge for a fabulous year of fundraising!  Today we were presented with a cheque for £2263.83 and a trolley full of goodies! We have been working with Sainsburys for the last year and have enjoyed a huge amount of support from their staff and customers in that time.  We have held bag packs, we have been able to showcase our SoLO projects in store and  have benefitted from the generosity of shoppers donating Easter eggs in season. We pay tribute to Jane their community champion, Karen the store manager and the whole team of amazing staff who have gone over and above to support us as a charity.  We look forward to working together in the future and to enjoying maintaining the links we have created together. We wish every success to the Alzheimers Society who will be their next charity of the...

A Solo Volunteers leaving thoughts…………

“Thank you so much for your time and thanks to the other workers / volunteers who have made me feel so welcome.  Also a massive thanks to the members who have given me so much.  I am not sure where I learnt the most or gained the most experience, my course or with you guys.  But without this experience I would not be in the position I am to carry on. SOLO and its members will remain with me and I dearly hope I can return at a later date. I wish you all the very best for the future. Thanks for...

Partnership working

Delighted to be able to report that we are just setting up a community partnership with the Shirley Branch of the Coventry Building Society which is very exciting news!  We  look forward to working with them over the next year – launching on 26th June!   Votes and tokens are coming in at the Dorridge Branch of Sainsburys.  SoLO is one of three charities in the running for the coming year.  We have been very lucky to be partnering with Sainsburys this past year and are in with another chance for another opportunity!

Change

If there is one thing that we can be certain of is that nothing is never certain! Yesterday, we heard that the country will be going to the polls yet again, soon we will have a new Mayor of the West Midlands, the national minimum wage went up on 1st April, and new drivers will be tested on how well they use a SATNAV! One of the main reasons that SoLO is still in existence is that we have been prepared

Easter thanks

Huge thanks to Sainsbury’s Dorridge and their lovely customers – who have generously donated two trolley loads of Easter eggs so that our members can have extra treats this Easter.

The store has adopted SoLO as their charity of the year and the partnership is very eggciting in so many ways! There have been two bag pack weekends already – and the tins at the checkouts have been emptied more than once throughout the time – thanks to generous customers.
