East | Abbie's update

We have finally started working on the Hope on the Horizon garden at Chavasse VC House with the expert help of Essex Wildlife Trust. We had our first working party at the end of August and the progress was incredible! We have six months’ worth of dates scheduled in so if you would like to get involved in shaping the garden then please do get in touch.

We have some very exciting news to share with you all… we have recruited a new Band of Brothers and Sisters Coordinator of for the East! Lyndsay starts mid-September so please do start to look out for her emails soon and those of you who do come into the centre I will be sure to introduce you all.

What’s coming up:

  • Hazel Hurdle workshop: local to Chavasse TBC, 20 September
  • Band of Sisters Respite weekend: Chavasse VC House, 13-15 October

If you need any more information or to sign up to any of the forthcoming events, please email me.

Midlands | Alan's update

September is now here and we have had trampolining near Stoke, Glass Making in Stourbridge, tickets for the Test Match at Edgbaston and other opportunities across the region, so thank you for all those who went along and hopefully enjoyed themselves. My personal favourite was seeing the kids being out-bounced by some very enthusiastic Mums and Dads at Flip Out Trampoline Centre -you guys were brilliant!

A few of you lovely lot have asked about replacing or obtaining your BoB/BoS membership card. This is done by logging onto the BoB/BoS portal on the Help for Heroes website. Remember, it is well worth carrying it as it allows FREE entry to Drayton Manor Park (BOB only) and 20% off purchases at MOTO service stations if you are out on the motorways. Please also log on to sign the membership agreement on the site - thank you.
