'ARF July Blog’

Hi Everyone,

During July Family and friends continued to support ‘ARF’ in ‘Living their dream’ by supporting the following events: -

Only Crumbs Remaining:
On the 18th July Charlotte’s mum Kay held a Coffee & Cake Morning which was a great success. Various scrummy cakes were made by family and friends which included coffee & walnut cake, bakewell tarts, lemon sponge, carrot cake, chocolate rocky horror and many other types of mouth watering fat free delights!

If that wasn’t enough one of the prizes for the raffle was an afternoon tea for two at Brands Hatch Place Hotel, which was kindly, donated by the Hotel.

The total raised from the event that included personal donations was an amazing £515

Am I going to win the lottery? :
July was the start of Tarot & Physic reading evenings which have been extremely popular. Due to demand Nicky and Tracey have agreed to continue readings on Wednesday s evenings, but they advise pre-booking your session ASAP by either contacting one of the following 07971 007192 or to avoid disappointment (further details can be found on the ‘ARF’ Bulletin Board right of this blog)

Churchill .....Says oh yes please.....:
On the 24th July Charlotte’s Aunt Jackie and work colleagues at Churchill’s Insurance Bromley held a Cake & Book morning in support of ‘ARF’. Yet again as you can see from the pictures below various donations were made in the form of cakes and cookies.

Charlotte and her Mum Kay attended the event and made some wonderful new friends.

The event raised a whooping £527 and the Churchill team have agreed to organise additional events in the future to support ‘ARF’. Thank you everyone at Churchill’s for your support and hospitality.

Cross Roads Care Bexley:
An Open Recruitment Day was held at Pier Road Erith on the 25th July for potential Care Support Workers and Team Leader to have the opportunity to meet ‘ARF’. The day was a great success and ‘ARF’ made many new friends.

The interview process will be on-going through August – September to finalise the ‘ARF’ staff team before beginning our great adventure of living independently of our families.

Our New Home:
Hexagon have confirmed that the property completion date is on schedule for 28th September and we hope to visit the property for the first time with our parents on the 27th August (yippee we can’t wait!)

Well that’s about it until next month. We would once again like to thank everyone for their continued support and generosity in supporting ‘ARF’ live their dream.

Like Charlotte and Kerrie who are on summer holidays after completing their second year at NASH college ‘ARF’ would like to wish you a happy summer holidays with your families whether you’re staying at home or planning a breakaway!

Charlotte, Kerrie & Nik : ) lol
