ANOTHER super busy start to the week at Reuben’s. Before lunchtime on Monday we were already in receipt of and thanking our supporters Nina and Michelle at Ashton, while at Glossop we hosted the following workforce: Eric, from High Peak Creative; Mike, from the Shed in Dukinfield; Stephen, from Hill Burn drains; Ian, our volunteer; Phil, Malcolm (Simon) and Steve, from SES and Ryder electrical.
A very busy morning before popping by Pico Lounge to share some information for their forthcoming support of our cause.
Tuesday we host a group as they plant at our entrance and exits. They are from Thomas Cook and will be complementing the work completed so far by Rob, l of Arundel Landscapes, and the wonderful craftsmen that are Marchington stone and Etherone stone, David and Rob.
Last week will stay with me for a long time and I won’t ever forget their kindness. If you do get chance, please bob by our Retreat in Glossop and take a look at our latest delivery. You will see that we finally have identity, there is no way of missing it. The guys have carried out a fantastic job and we thank groundworks care of Tesco for their grant to support our beautiful project of entrance and exit – more on that to come. Lots more thank yous this week to: Jenny of CMS, Mr and Mrs Lovell, Chadsfield medical practice, Partington Theatre Club in memory of our dear friend David Slack, Mr and Mrs Robinson, Waterloo School, Glossop gardeners club, Pritesh, our online donors and the amazing Emma, Sonya, Julie, Steve and Steve for completing the Manchester Marathon on Sunday.
Good luck to Danny, from KO Promotions, and his brother Austin, from Oz Fitness, for their Snowdon climb this weekend.
It was a busy weekend for our online web shop last weekend with lots of ticket sales coming through for the REUoyal wedding celebration on May 19. We arrived in to work this morning to be greeted by the loveliest of voice mails from a lady excited to join us. Thanks to Kevin at Cineworld Ashton. We are also super thrilled to see how our latest fundraiser has been received too, with tickets selling fast for our singalong the Greatest showman on May 6, it is going to be spectacular.
