John and Patsy enjoyed an evening out at The Cottage Inn at Bucklebury, they enjoyed a two course meal with a bottle of wine. This was a wonderful Christmas gift from Gary the Landlord. Given to us through Barclays Bank in Thatcham.
It was to say a thank you for all that they have done and still do, for all of the Young people who live in our charity house Cornerstone.
The meal was superb cooked to perfection and they were well looked after and felt spoiled rotten.
One of our young people received a wonderful Christmas gift from Sarah and Rich Donegan. This is going to make getting to and from work so much easier for this young man.
The Charity is very grateful for such a thoughtful gift. The young man is over the moon, it now takes him 10 minutes to get to work instead of 40 walking....He is no longer frozen when he walks through the front door in the evenings.
Patsy, John, and Karen received lots of Christmas gifts from Lyndsey and Amanda from Barclays bank in Thatcham.
Lyndsey very kindly got lots of the banks lovely customers to donate Christmas gifts for the young people living in Cornerstone (our charity house). They were all very generous and we collected 4 big bags and boxes full to the brim. Barclays Bank also gave the young people a voucher to have a game of bowling.
On top of all that they presented to Patsy and John as the founders of the charity a paid for meal for two with a bottle of wine at The Cottage Inn Upper Buckleberry. Patsy and John were overwhelmed with their generosity. Thank you all so very much.
Christmas was truly special this year.
We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated gifts for the Young People this Christmas, the excitement and smiles on their faces on Christmas morning said it all.
We also want to say a big thank you to KPMG, AWE, Barclays Bank (Thatcham) and Sarah Donegan and her family, for the great donations of Christmas Gifts and for all your support through out the year.
