Bike Give Away

We were recently donated £200 from Abbey Life Assurance Company. This sum of money was used to buy two bikes for two of our residents. We wanted to acknowledge the great achievements some of our residents have recently demonstrated. After much deliberation we decided on two which we felt deserved the bikes the most – but it was very tough on deciding since there were so many deserving candidates. We would love to be able to give away more prizes to many deserving residents!!

We were thrilled to give away the bikes at our Open Day on September 10. It was a great way to formally congratulate the two residents who were so grateful and proud of themselves. The bikes were presented to the residents by a LOCAL REALITY TV star, Carl Owen, who was in the BBC show ‘Invasion of the Job Snatchers’. Carl then took the two lucky winners for a bike ride from Bournemouth Pier all the way to Poole and back! For full details on the press coverage please click here.

Finally we would like to thank ‘On Yer Bike‘ Charminster for donating the bikes, and Ian Govier our Chair Trustee for donating two bicycle repairs kits, should our residents have any mishaps!

We were very pleased with the success of our first Hope HTS event on 11 November. The event held at an exclusive car showroom in Bournemouth owned by local businessman Malcolm Bishop, provided the perfect setting. Guests enjoyed drinks and canapes whilst having the opportunity to view some of the priceless vehicles on display. The event was supported and attended by the Mayor of Bournemouth, Barry Goldbart alongside local business people.
