Do you use the Stagecoach Buses?

Category : Events

For many years we have supported parents on the unit by paying for their bus travel.  This has been done through the use of National Transport Tokens.  However, these are no longer going to be valid after 31 October.  We have a number of tokens which have been paid for by the charity and which are not going to be used by parents.  We would love to be able to reclaim some of the potential losses so if you are a regular user of the bus and would be interested in buying some tokens from us that you can then use for your travel during October, we’d love to hear from you!

World Cup Competition

Category : Events

If any of you have been supporting us for some time, you may remember that for the past 2 Football World Cups, we have run a competition to raise a few pounds for the Charity and to add a bit more interest to the football (especially if you are not a fan!!).  You do not need to have any knowledge of football to enter – all you will need is contained on the sheet!  Basically, you just have to predict which teams will progress through the various stages and have a guess at a few more questions!  It costs £2 to enter and all completed entries will need to be returned to us by midnight on Wednesday 13th June.   There will be a small prize for the winner!

To request a sheet, please email us at and we will send one to you!  Payment can then be made via our PayPal Giving Page or with cash to any of the Trustees!
