12 comany members attended a sleepover at Trinity during the October half term weekend - besides, swimming, rock climbing, bowling, games and fellowship, the girls had a vist from, jan and Chris, 2 members of Trinity Church, going out to Tanzina in November to support the Grass Roots Project, which helps children attend school, have a healthly diet and access medical facilities. The girls then baked a range of biscuits and sweet treats and sold them on Sunday morning after the church service, raising over £25 for the Grass roots charity - well done girls!
Fantastic news for our members, Exxon mobile have given us a generous donation of £1000 towards the purchase of IT equipment for use within our GB company activities.
We have purchased a laptop, printer and now can gain Wifi access to the internet so that the older girls can access their Duke of Edinbrugh online record accounts, we can create posters, newsletters and leaflets about our events and teach all our members about internet and on line safety.
Rachal Hickman, who works for Exxon mobile at Fawley, volunteers her time as a leader regularly at our company evenings. Through the Exxon Mobile "VIP" scheme (Volunteers Involvement Programme) Rachal can request some financial support for her volunteering.
Purchasing the IT equipment will enable us to provide an upto date programme for our young members and stay in touch with a form of media and communication that our young members are increasingly familiar with.
We give sincere thanks to Rachal and Exxon mobile for their support.
For the second year in a row we have chosen to support Water Aid, a charity that provides fresh, clean drinking water to communities in Africa. Thank you to everyone who helped to raise £160 over the year either by filling Smartie tubes with 20p's, domating some of your sweet money or helping with the Sunday lunch. See our certificate on the GB Notice board at Trinity July 2014
Congratulations to everyone who has been helping to collect Bra's for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. Wendy Southwell is pleased to announce that over 6000 have now been forwarded on via our GB Company, Hampshire West District and members and friends of Trinity Church - each bra raises about 90p for the Air Ambulance and are then sold on in Africa, where women who wear them are less lightly to be attacked and assulted.
In October 2011, the Seniors and Brigaders appeared on Radio Solent's Katie Martin show to explain how the bra's helped young women in other countries as well as local people with the Air Ambulance - we are still collecting bra's so please keep sending thenm in.
