Can you help us with our fund raising bag packing event at Oxney Road, Peterborough 15th November 10 – 2pm. Everyone welcome, contact Laura Tilley or message the Facebook group please.
We are delighted to announce that The Peterborough School has chosen PADSG as their main charity for this school year. Championed by Charlotte Hayes, who is the charities prefect at the school. We were selected from a number of deserving local and national charities.
The school presented a cheque to last years charity, Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice at their annual speech day at Peterborough Cathedral last month. They raised a large sum, so we are very excited that Charlotte and the school have chosen to raise money for our group.
Not only will the school help with fundraising the six form students are hoping to volunteer and both our drop in sessions in Paston and Casterton and many other events through out the year!
Chris King and Laura Tilley have been invited to speak at an upcoming assembly in November.
A very exciting time ahead!!!
Our Group has been chosen to be Charity of the Year by two separate organisations – SAINSBURYS in Oxney Road and The Peterborough High School. This is fabulous news and once again, will bring many opportunities for us to raise awareness about Downs Syndrome and also to raise money for our group. We are working closely with both organisations and will keep you posted about forthcoming events.
Our first organised event with Sainsburys is a ‘Bag Pack’ at the Oxney Road Store on Saturday 15th November between 10am and 2pm. Obviously, the more people we have helping out, the more money we will raise for our group so please do consider helping, even if you can only manage a half an hour.
This session aimed at under the 5s continues to take place once a month at Happy Faces in Glinton, Peterborough. Children have the opportunity to play, sing and sign. The next sessions are from 10 – 11.30am on the following Saturdays – 18th October, 8th November and 13th December.
Saturday 18th October, Kingsgate Conference Centre
