NEWS FROM 2017!

LOUISES GREAT GLEN WALK

As many of you may remember, the daughter of our Treasurer was brave enough to walk the whole of the Great Glen Way for sponsorship to go towards Harlequin Care.

She raised a staggering £1,982!!!!

Thank you so much Louise.


Special thanks to Corfe Castle Model Village

Again for another year, with the thanks to Ed and Emily, Corfe Model Village have very kindly given us the money collected from the exhibit. This was an amazing £775. 


Clothes Sale by the Ladies of Wool Church

Many thanks to some of the ladies of Wool Church who organised a Clothes Sale for our benefit and managed to raise £272. 


We were also very lucky to be able to host a fundraising day at CHARLBOROUGH PARK and get to see what was behind those amazing walls.

Even though we didn't have the best weather we had a lovely day and made an impressive £717.


Again In June we were able to fundraise in the Coop in Swanage, and just in one day the public were good enough to donate £363. This was our second year of doing this and we hope to do again in 2018, but we have no date as of yet.


WAREHAM LIONS were good to us again and gave us a donation of £300.


We also had some lovely donations from carers one in memory of Jock Moran.


Also for a second year in August family and friend volunteers of Harlequin went to Swanage to help shake buckets and guide people in the Swanage Regatta and Carnival. The committee were amazed with our support and awarded us with an amazing £600. 


We can't thank the people, organising and volunteering for us at all of these events enough. 

Without them we would be lost and unable to function as a charity.


We would also like to thank all of the people that have put their loose change in the Pods around the county. These made an amazing £395. You can't miss our pods; they are bright yellow so keep filling them up.

 


And finally, we want to thank all the people in and visiting Lulworth for their continued support over the years for THE BUCKET TREE. Even tho the tree is no longer there, people still have been supporting Harlequin by putting money in the bucket. This collected anther £511 last year but unfortunately it will be no more. 




New Harlequin phone!

Harlequin Care now has it's own dedicated mobile, 07547136041.

You'll be able to use this to book or cancel appointments, or even let us know if you are running late on the day!



Thanks to anonymous donor!

Many thanks to J Eames for the cheque kindly donated to Harlequin Care, whoever you are we are all very grateful!

Many Thanks to Swanage Lions Club!
On the 9th of February 2015 Rosalind Firmstone, on behalf of Harlequin Care, was presented with a cheque from Swanage Lions Club for a very generous sum of £1300! The unexpected and very gratefully received donation was a result of the Lions Club's Christmas Card appeal, so a huge thank you to all their hard-working volunteers. 

Many Thanks to Sinead Feeney and Family!
A race night in Wool organised by Sinead Feeney and family and friends was a huge success, raising a staggering £974.20 for Harlequin Care. The evening was held in honour of her husband Paul, who will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Our thoughts and love are with the family. 


The funds have enabled us to run regular Carers' Relaxation Days, which have been gratefully by all our lovely Carers. Thank you for all your wonderful feedback!


However there's still room for more fund-raising, so any ideas please get in touch


Thank you everyone!
