Thank you to Malcom from "Sport in mind" and Thatcham Table Tennis Club, for very kindly giving our young residents free entry and instruction each week ... They love it !
Last week John and Patsy attended the Mayor of Thatcham's civic reception and were presented with a cheque for £1,617.50! Ellen Crumly, (Mayor of Thatcham) has raised this over her past year via raffles, donations and at events - this amount will also be match funded by The Good Exchange! A massive thank you to the Mayor for choosing our charity for one of her charities of the year and also to everyone who donated.
Curry, Fish, Pancakes....
These are just some of the home cooked meals that our residents have eaten and helped to prepare throughout the year.
A past resident who lived at Cornerstone 5 years ago, has done amazingly well since leaving us going from strength to strength. He is now a qualified mechanic and has just last week won a prize for being 3rd overall in his class B auto-solo championship.
Congratulations from everyone at the charity, we are all very proud of what he has achieved since leaving us and know he is going to go on and achieve even more great things in the future.
Our young people were very excited and pleased to receive their gifts Christmas morning, and enjoyed their Christmas dinner too.
Thank you to everyone who donated gifts and food for our young residents this year, and for all your support through out the year.
Thank you to Sarah and her family for donating some lovely gift bags full of gifts, for each of our residents this Christmas.
We received this lovely hamper full of Christmas food and treats for our young people from Rob Lewis from BNI Bourne Newbury - Thank you so much!
John and Patsy collected these bags full of presents from Lynne, Vicky and Claire, from KPMG last Thursday. There is a bag for each of our young residents! Thank you to everyone at KPMG.
