Message from the Chairman of CHAIN
Well here we are in December with Christmas just around the
corner. There are lots of events to look forward to including the Victorian
Extravaganza on Friday 9th December and the Mayor’s Carol Service on
Sunday 18th December at 6.30pm in St. Lawrence's. I am sure that our Christmas
lights will once again be one of the best in the South of England thanks to
Rod Desmoules and his team.
CHAIN is very lucky to have such a wonderful group of volunteers and we have
been very lucky to recruit some new car drivers and Handybus drivers over
the last couple of months.
We are looking to replace our ‘Chairman’ vehicle and if anyone
would like to make a donation towards the cost we would be very grateful.
The new vehicle will be a Renault Kangoo which will cost £17,250.00
plus VAT and we will be using £5,000 from our reserves.
The ‘Chairman’ is used to take people who are in wheelchairs to
hospital appointments, stroke clubs, family visits, etc. Sometimes our own
drivers are used or family members drive the vehicle (after training).
Please make your kind donation through www.findmeagrant.org
this enables Greenham Common trust to collate all the donations, attract 22%
gift aid, and the Trust will then possibly contribute up to £5000 towards
our project to replace our ageing vehicle.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas
and a peaceful New Year.
Best Wishes, Janette Kersey
