Anne Cadbury

Anne Cadbury sadly passed away on New Year’s Day.

Anne was our much loved Patron for over 50 years, committed to helping and supporting us right to the end.

Anne was a hands-on Patron, using her huge range of contacts in the region and beyond to our benefit and also attending the charity’s events and meetings in person.
She knew the long-standing staff and trustees by name and always engaged empathetically with our service users. With a twinkle in her eye and a ready smile Anne always lifted hearts and enthused people, she was a living masterclass in how to be the best patron possible.

We enjoyed great support over many years from several trust funds as a direct result of Anne’s input. Dynamic and indefatigable, we will miss her greatly but her contribution will forever be with the charity.

Christian Drewitt: How accessible is Gloucestershire?

How accessible is Gloucestershire?

Christian Drewitt (pictured) has been travelling the length and breadth of the county to assess restaurants, attractions, museums, sport and music venues, to see how accessible they really are for people with disabilities.

Christian has kept a log of all of the places he has visited, to help others find out how easy a visit would be, including an accessibility rating.

You can see all of Christian’s findings by visiting his website: https://christiandrewitt.wordpress.com/

 

Cheltenham in Bloom Entry Brings Helping Hands to the Community Garden

Helping Hands Community Garden at Well Close House will be on BBC Radio Gloucestershire this Sunday

The program is on between 06:00 & 7:00 and again between 09:00 & 10:00 as part of Richard Atkins Sunday morning program.

This is the first of a sequence of 12 monthly visits to the gardens at Well Close House and our guests yesterday were Zurich Community Trust, who in one day have transformed one area of the gardens.

We have also been visited by the Cheltenham in Bloom judges, the award ceremony is in September and though the gardens are not finished all the gardeners felt that taking part was the important thing. We were assisted in getting the gardens ready for judging by the three regular Wednesday volunteers but also 10-12 ‘outside’ volunteers who kindly gave a few hours support.
