Can you fill a shoe box of goodies for a needy child ? The boxes are for children in Eastern Europe and Africa. Boxes and information are available at The Tottington Centre. All boxes must be ready for mid November.
The first of the twice monthly 2 hour sessions to help support those who have lost someone to suicide will comence on Saturday 2nd November at The Tottington Centre at 10 am. Please call in for a leaflet. These sessions will be led by Rebecca ,a mum who lost her teenage daughter to suicide.I will be there to help, meet and greet and give support in any way I can.
Rebecca has tried for some time to get this started with no luck.
This will be a first for Bury and it started with a Tweet…and I responded .
Proud that The Tottington Centre is to host these sessions.
CALLING ALL THE GENEROUS SPIRITED FOLK OF TOTTINGTON !
You will still find me at The Tottington Centre each Thursday from 9.30-5 pm as a Volunteer. However, I am no longer part of The Management Committee or the fundraising team.
I will always be very proud to have played a large part in saving the library from closure along with my colleague Cllr Iain Gartside who instigated the petition to save the library
I was one of the main drivers and secured the £15.000 of funding to ensure we could initially operate the library with volunteers. I have introduced many fundraising events and feel sure they will continue.
Meanwhile, I have agreed to Chair the Ramsbottom and Tottington Fundraising group to raise funds for Bury Hospice so will put my creative fundraising skills to more good use.
My colleague Totty lad LUIS McBriar who will be standing for election in Tottington Ward next May is taking part in Bury Hospice Strictly Dance Competition. We hope he wins !
GOOD LUCK LUIS !…don’t break a leg !
