REUBEN’S RE­TREAT Thanks to gen­er­ous hearts

Glossop Advertiser - - News - Lynne Red­mond

EV­ERY day is spe­cial at Reuben’s Re­treat but the last seven days have been the busiest, yet most beau­ti­ful, week of 2018.

It was so mon­u­men­tal I know I won’t be able to do it all jus­tice in just one col­umn, but let’s give it a go!

Last Thurs­day we reached over 900 peo­ple through pre­sen­ta­tions to the amaz­ing Stock­port Homes Group and at the Thomas Cook Chil­dren’s Char­ity’s Ball.

We’re so grate­ful for such op­por­tu­ni­ties.

On Fri­day we fol­lowed up pledges of sup­port from Thurs­day, at­tended the Dy­ing Mat­ters event at RMCH to let fam­i­lies from across the north west know that we’re here to sup­port them, and the small mat­ter of pre­par­ing for Satur­day/Sun­day

On Satur­day we held our fab­u­lous REUoyal Wed­ding event with hun­dreds of beau­ti­fully turned-out guests cel­e­brat­ing the royal nup­tials while din­ing on a sump­tu­ous buf­fet.

Thank you to Wil­liams Deli, I-catch­ing Events and Ju­bilee Hall (Duk­in­field) for all your sup­port – we were hon­oured to carry out some beau­ti­ful work with one of our fam­i­lies at our Lodge in Glos­sop on Satur­day morn­ing.

We’re very grate­ful to Caro­line O and Glos­sop Arts Project for mak­ing it so very spe­cial – Sun­day was an ex­haust­ing but ex­hil­a­rat­ing day as we ● hosted our 6th Great Manch­ester run event with over 140 run­ners across the Ju­nior, 10k and half marathon events.

Sincere thanks to the won­der­ful team at Vir­gin Money Lounge in Manch­ester who helped us to make it an­other Es­tab­lished 1973 COM­POS­ITE

DOORS from

mag­i­cal oc­ca­sion.

They work so hard along­side our staff and vol­un­teers to give our run­ners the best ex­pe­ri­ence.

This year Reuben’s daddy, Mike, came out of his com­fort zone to try his first half marathon, smash­ing through the fin­ish line at 2.23 and gor­geous Isaac com­pleted the Ju­nior run for his lit­tle brother.

Thank you to all of our run­ners in­clud­ing the team from Gree­hal­ghs and friends – we were blessed with so many signs that Reuben is walk­ing along­side us, ap­prov­ing of all we do in his name to help other fam­i­lies in need.

Be­ing a tiny team of five means the last week has only been pos­si­ble thanks to gen­er­ous hearts in­clud­ing Jan M, Nigel M and our of­fice man­ager Rach, her Mum Linda and twins Jake and So­phie, to name just a few.

Ex­tra spe­cial men­tion to Ian G our volunteer pho­tog­ra­pher who cov­ered three back-to­back events this week­end. Tele­phone: 0161 339 3350 CALL ANY­TIME! Fax: 0161 343 2720
