#GiveADay

It’s a leap year and that means we have one extra day in 2020 – make it count!

This year we are encouraging you to use your extra day for charity.

Consider donating a day’s worth of your wage to Restore, all money raised will fund vital services for our members helping them in their recovery from mental ill-health.

Volunteer to give a day of your time to come to one of our Recovery Groups and help out with diy or gardening to make our facilities the best they can be for our members.

Or if you fancy doing an activity challenge in 2020, think about sponsorship. We’re glad to help you with promoting your giving pages, helping with social media, or with Restore-branded t-shirts, or flyers.

Blenheim 7K Fun Run – Run for Restore! EVENT CANCELLED @ Blenheim Palace
Apr 19 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Run for fun at Blenheim Palace grounds and support Restore! Why not give something back, and take on the challenge for #GiveADay?

There’s something for everyone on the day: 7k run, children’s 1 mile event, wheelchair & buggy events, so the perfect opportunity to make a day of it. You could even bring a picnic!

Book your ticket online, then get sponsorship and raise some funds for Restore. You can set up your Just Giving page here: https://www.justgiving.com/start-fundraising

 

 

The 7k course is suitable for all ages and abilities. It offers a challenging run for the more experienced, and beautiful surroundings for the beginner or anyone who wants to take a more leisurely pace. The wheelchair and buggy event will differ slightly and take place over a 4-mile course following the trails around the grounds of Blenheim Palace.

All competitors will receive a medal, as well as prizes for the winners, and trophies for the fastest teams. The event is free for spectators, so why not make it part of a special day out, with family or friends?

Restore’s Winter Clothing Community Drive @ Restore
Oct 1 @ 2:57 pm – Oct 31 @ 4:00 pm

Winter Clothing Community Drive

Donate your spare warm, winter clothing to help our members.

This winter Restore has an unusual request. We are happily now able to welcome our service users back onsite, but our COVID-19 safety regulations mean that our buildings have to remain extremely ventilated, with doors and windows open at all times. As winter approaches and temperatures fall, we want to keep our 292 members safe, warm and dry. So we’re launching a community drive to gather clean and good quality winter clothing from local businesses, organisations and communities to help us keep our services open to the people who need them.

Throughout October we’ll be accepting donations of winter clothing of all sorts, from hats and gloves to wellies, fleeces, anoraks and coats. We respect our members, and ask that any donations are clean and in excellent condition. Our drive will culminate on 31st October, so that we can distribute the items to our service users across the county before the coldest weather hits. So if you have anything to give, please let us know before then! 

If you would like to donate items or discuss this further, please contact a member of our fundraising team at fundraising@restore.org.uk

Thank you for helping us keep our services running this winter.
