Petty Officer Luke Phillips will be running a marathon up and down Snowdonia as part of the Rat Race Advenutre Sports. Luke, who lives in Warmisnter is in the Royal Navy and he has raised funds for the Centre in the past. If you get a chance have a look at the Man vs Mountain web page
http://ratrace.com/manvsmountain/ as it looks incredible and he is doing it all for our Centre. He has also written some lovely words about the Centre on his justgiving page if you wanted to support him – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/l-phillips4
Importance Notice to regular users of the Centre.
We want to encourage our members to set up a standing order to pay donations through our bank rather than through our reception desk. This will save the Centre a significant amount in bank charges. There are standing order forms on reception and if you need any help with this please speak to Sarah Williamson. Many other Centre’s ask for donations by standing order only and they have found that members find this much more convenient. We would really appreciate your cooperation.
– an exclusive hairdressing salon in Bath have donated a cut and blow dry with a stylist/senior stylist which is worth a small fortune! We are running another silent auction for the month of August to offer this voucher, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make a bid, (or drop her a line and post it!) all bids (however small) accepted. And many congratulations to the winner of the balloon flight – photos will follow…

Charity shop – Volunteers wanted!
The new charity shop is doing really, really well and the upgrade of the old charity shop is in full swing. As we have been offered an extension on the lease in the new shop we may be fortunate enough to run two charity shops at the same time. This is an amazing fundraising opportunity and we remain exceedingly grateful to both landlords, who have been exceptionally kind to our Centre.
We now need new volunteers to work in the shops and if you would like to volunteer or you know somebody who would be up for a new challenge please contact Carol Coates on email@example.com or call 01985 217728.
The shop still needs to replenish stock, especially as it is selling so quickly, so do keep bringing clothes, small pieces of furniture, bric a bric and there is a drop off point at the back of the new shop that you can drive right up to and park easily.
