What a fantastic day we had at our first Charlie’s Charity Clay Shoot at Barbury Shooting School. A huge thanks to all the ‘guns’ for joining us, our wonderful instructors, to Roxtons for the raffle prizes, GrapeSmith for the fabulous wine, Rachel at Square Root Events for the delicious food and the weather gods for being kind! It’s certainly going to become an annual event so watch this space!
We’re so delighted and thankful that we are now the official charity of Roxtons. Roxtons has five shops in Hungerford, Cheltenham, Alresford, Stockbridge and Haslemere and after 40 years on our High Streets are now a much-loved local, independent brand. Roxtons will be raising money for us at their events and donating fabulous raffle and auction prizes.
We were delighted to hear news from Alicia Boyer, our sponsored figure skater!
In October Alicia competed in an international competition at Lee Valley. winning first place in the short programme with a personal best score of 30.52! Many, many congratulations Alicia! …. we always love hearing news from the talented youngsters we support through Charlie’s Charity. Especially when their emails end with words like these ……..
” I just wanted to say again thank you so much for everything you do for me. I could never thank you enough! Love Alicia”
So fantastic to see our play equipment being used by children and adults alike at Swings & Smiles. Based in Thatcham, near Newbury, Swings & Smiles is a place to play for children with special needs and their families. It offers a unique environment where the whole family feels supported and where they can spend quality time together. We’re delighted that some of our Charlie’s Charity funds have gone to buy this equipment that will be enjoyed by so many families. What a wonderful local initiative! www.swingsandsmiles.co.uk
Some photos of Alicia who we sponsor. In a recent competition at the end of September, Alicia came second in the short programme where she managed to land a double axel. She then came first in an additional programme where she made no mistakes at all!
