REUBEN’S RE­TREAT

Glossop Advertiser - - News - Lynne Red­mond

I WANT to start this week’s col­umn with a huge thank you to ev­ery­one who sup­ports Reuben’s Re­treat.

As a home­grown char­ity born from love and loss, our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties have been in­te­gral to our pro­gres­sion since Au­gust 2012.

With so many amaz­ing causes out there, we are so thank­ful for each time you choose to sup­port Reuben’s Re­treat – whether that’s through shop­ping at www. easy­fundrais­ing.org or pass­ing on a copy of our most re­cent mag­a­zine to some­one who might not al­ready know about us.

Ev­ery act of kind­ness takes us a step closer to reach­ing an­other child with an un­cer­tain fu­ture (and their mums, dads, broth­ers and sis­ters) or help­ing us to reach the next mile­stone in the ren­o­va­tions to our re­treat. Thank you so very much.

Sum­mer­time means lots of fab­u­lous events and ac­tiv­i­ties for us so here’s a snap­shot of what’s com­ing up in the next month.

Tues­day, June 5 - So­cial Me­dia Work­shop:

There will be two half-day ses­sions avail­able with so­cial me­dia ex­pert He­len, from Gin­ger Juice, cov­er­ing prac­ti­cal tips and tricks to get your so­cial me­dia work­ing for your busi­ness. Places cost £32 per per­son. Call us on 01457 680023 for more in­for­ma­tion.

Satur­day, June 23 - Scrufts:

Our sec­ond char­ity dog show will take place in Howard Park from 11am to 2pm. Once again, there will be var­i­ous cat­e­gories in­clud­ing Wag­gi­est Tail and Best Puppy as well as a dog agility course. There will also be re­fresh­ments and a pho­tog­ra­pher.

Satur­day, June 29 - Brass for Reuben:

We are also in­cred­i­bly grate­ful to ev­ery­one who do­nates on­line via Vir­gin Giv­ing, Just Giv­ing or Lo­cal Giv­ing, you are cer­tainly not for­got­ten.

Fi­nally, a huge thanks to Team Sky for their ‘give a day back.’ A group of 27 gen­er­ous hearts spent the whole day clear­ing the grounds and gen­er­ally tack­ling lots of jobs around the Re­treat that our tiny team sim­ply don’t have the time or knowl­edge to com­plete.

Please visit our so­cial me­dia chan­nels to stay up-to-date.
