The Mayor of Hillingdon’s Charity Appeal 2016 -17
We are delighted and honoured to have been chosen as one of the beneficiaries of The Mayor of Hillingdon’s Charity Appeal 2016 -17. The theme he has chosen this year is – ‘Journey through Life’.
This is an amazing support to our fundraising efforts, we are thrilled to have been selected along with Harlington Hospice, Paul Strickland Scanner Appeal and Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity.
We are planning to use any funds we receive to create a Horticulture Centre of Excellence. Horticulture particularly benefits those with learning difficulties. It teaches dexterity and motor skills, increases confidence, reduces social isolation through team work and develops skills which improve employment opportunities in the future. We hope to create an area including:
- Biodome greenhouse – to enable students to garden all year around
- Labyrinth – to promote calm, develop co-ordination and engage thought and creativity.
- Sensory Garden – benefit those with sensory processing difficulties including autism.
During the year a range of fundraising events are taking place to encourage donations. These include:
Uxbridge Auto Show –
Bollywood Delights –
Quiz Nights – held every 2 months at Civic Centre, Uxbridge. The next event is:
Tuesday 21st March at 6.30pm
Dinner Dance – on Thursday 9th March 2017 from 6.30pm at Marriot Hotel, Heathrow.
