Menzies prepares the Paxmead Riverbase for summer childrens activities

Children have not been able to enjoy the river based activities at Paxmead for the last 18 months.  Two hard working teams from Menzies chopped, cut back, gardened and moved the campfire circle to help get the site ready for the summer activities on the river.  Gill was delighted with all their hard work which has enabled them to get the base looking in great shape and ready for action fo the children.

Compass Group Chertsey donate Rucksacks to Just a Helping Hand

Compass Group who are one of the UK’s top catering, hospitality, and business support providers, based in Chertsey, have been helping the local homeless with the donation of rucksacks.

Megan at Just a Helping Hand told us

“To have this amazing donation of rucksacks is honestly just incredible, and we are truly grateful.

We have many distributors who issue rucksacks to those who need them most. One such group is women who are released from prison. Many of these women being released are homeless and some come from domestic abuse situations.  We take this into account when filling these rucksacks.

Can you imagine the feelings of these women when they open their rucksack and find such lovely things as a wash bag filled with deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrush, nail file, and lip balm.  But there is much more – including a pack of new socks and underwear, a flask (with refill information for free at local outlets), hat, scarf and gloves, meal vouchers, and a small Bible.

Such an act of kindness makes such a difference to them from both a practical and an emotional point of view.  It has been said to us that such generosity from a stranger provides a real sense of being cared for and thought about.  This can ease anxiety, provide hope, help with depression and even remove thoughts of suicide”
