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!

Update Time!

What a hectic couple of months it’s been! We’ve been very busy at Hope with various continuing projects, along with completing our September open day, we have had the Mayor of Bournemouth in to open our finally completed Gym Project (pictured below).

Hope’s brand new gym!

Alongside that, the WI ladies are already under way with their second cooking course for our residents, helping them to eat more nutritiously and healthily giving them structure within their lives.

Naturesave Trust Grant

We are pleased to announce that the Nature Save Trust have awarded us a grant to afford a new Green House.

For all our vulnerable residents, in each of our properties we aim to encourage them to eat healthily. As a means to achieving this, we will grow fresh fruit and vegetables by growing and maintaining allotment plots for each garden.
