Gloucester Child Contact Centre

Web site : Gloucester Child Contact Centre

The Gloucester Child Contact Centre provides a safe and neutral place where children can enjoy the company of adults from whom they are separated.

See this link

from Rob Wilkinson, who writes ‘This little known Charity exists to help Children keep in touch with parents who are separated, for whatever reason.


I believe that they would be overjoyed if we supported them, or even shared the amount raised with another worthy charity.’ He has included a brief document about them, which I will send out once we close nominations.

Web site : Ronan’s Trust

From Marion, who writes ‘As you will see this charity is a bereavement charity and as far as I can remember I don’t think we have supported bereavement before. In view of the fact that a couple of our members have recently been bereaved I would like you to put forward this charity.

Emma has said she is very happy to come along and talk to us, turn up on the Caper day and provide us with literature, in fact she is posting me some of their leaflets which I hope to have by next meeting.’

The Butterfly Garden

http://www.thebutterflygarden.org/

From Mike Hall, who writes ‘They provide educational, therapeutic and recreational activities for people of all ages and receive over a hundred students with learning difficulties a week from various schools around the area.

They are taught nursery work, gardening, woodwork and how to use wood working tools, to cook and there is even a small café where they are taught to wait on tables.

    Recently they received a visit from The Duchess of Gloucester and the proprietor Chris Evans has been honoured by the Lord Lieutenant of Gloucester.

This is a voluntary organisation, well run, who are highly dependent on volunteers and donations, and I recommend them to my friends in the M G CLUB.’

 

The Great Oaks Dean Forest Hospice

Web Site : http://www.great-oaks.org.uk/

From Keith & Wendy Lewis who write ‘The Great Oaks Dean Forest Hospice is an organization which offers a range of services for adults with serious illness that potentially may shorten their lives and is currently affecting their quality of life, and also including the impact on their families.

The services the Hospice can offer care and support especially at times of crisis by offering advice, information and support for anyone having treatment, living with or surviving cancer and also include:

  • Care and support shortly after diagnosis
  • When treatment is found to be no longer curative
  • To support everyone involved as they come to terms with the diagnosis
  • Support and care at the very end of life, especially if you wish to be cared for at home

All their work is provided by experienced staff and aided by trained volunteers.

The Hospice requires £600,000 each year to fund the services with the NHS contributing 5% and the rest is generated through their shops, fundraising events, grants, legacies and donations.’
