Partnership with Co-op Christchurch Thank you so much to Co-op on Fairmile Road for supporting us this year AND choosing to support us again in 2020! The team have been collecting, selling our Big Bob and Sunny's Journey books, holding fundraising days and encouraging shoppers to sign up to their membership cards so that Co-op can make more donations! This year they have raised an amazing £2,800 for Macmillan Caring Locally! Make sure you have signed up for your Co-op membership card - select us as your charity and every time you shop, Co-op will make a donation to us!...

Thank you to the Christchurch Lions Over the years, we have received outstanding support from Christchurch Lions - from fashions shows to fun days they have done it all! Recently, they popped in with a staggering £3,380.19 which they kindly donated to us. We are so grateful to the Lions and all their members, past and present, for the outstanding support they have given to us throughout many, many years....
