We collected £261.14 from our tin shake on 19 July. Our thanks go to Sainsbury’s Redditch for allowing us to stand at the front of the store and to everyone who put money in our tins. Unfortunately Barclays Bank Redditch have declined to match fund this amount.

Registered carers are invited to a lunch at The Greens Restaurant, Plymouth Road, Redditch on Monday 11 August at 12.30pm. Let us know by 31st July if you want to attend. There will be a £7 deposit.
We will be outside Sainsbury’s Redditch with our collection boxes on Saturday 19th July from 10am to 4pm. We are easily recognisable in our pink tops. There will also be a member of staff from Barclays Bank Redditch with us in the afternoon and Barclay’s will match fund the amount that we take on the day. Our thanks in advance to both Barclays Bank and Sainsbury’s Redditch.
We have been short-listed for the next stage of the Lloyds Bank Community Fund, which is the public vote. Nearly 600 Lloyds Banking Group colleagues worked together in selection panels to review 4,500 applications and decide the final four organisations short-listed in each of the 352 communities. The standard was very high this year and it’s a great achievement to have made the short-list. Our supporters, the public and Lloyds’ colleagues will be invited to vote for the short-listed organisations from 2 September to 10 October 2014. Votes can be cast online, in participating Lloyds Bank branches and by SMS. The organisation with the most votes in a community will receive £3,000, second highest votes £2,000, third highest votes £1,000 and fourth highest votes £500.
