2.  Thank you – Donations from UoR Charity Events

For the Law event: We had 9 teams attend the quiz, ranging from pairs to groups of six, with each person paying to enter the quiz. We also had mini-games on such as guess the name of the University of Reading Teddy, and How Many Sweets in the Jar.

For the Dance Society event: we held a ‘Bring A Friend to Dance’ class, with people donating per person to attend the event. We also held a bake sale of items baked by committee . We had 56 people in attendance, which is also amazing.

Overall ALCS will receive £102.50 .

Many thanks to Maise Watts for organising these 2 innovative fundraising events.

5. Jane Scarth House Visit

Mary visited the Jane Scarth House, cancer support in Romsey and spent a lovely morning hearing how they use their premises and support clients. Lots of ideas were exchanged and sharing of the challenges facing small local charites.

6. Recommended Podcast – Happy Place with Fearne Cotton

Fearne also has a happy place festival each year

“The podcasts are the backbone of Happy Place. You can actually hear other people talk about subject matters I’m interested in and I think are important. And it really brings it all to life. I learn something every time I do a podcast. It’s good to do research — always interesting, fun and every time is a challenge, especially when I don’t know someone. There’s usually a sweet spot, about 20 minutes in, when the guest has forgotten they’re doing a podcast. I love doing it.” — Fearne

Fearne talks personal, spiritual and the big picture with her amazing guests as she reveals what happiness means to them. We’ve engaged in chat with some of the funniest, wisest and forward-thinking minds out there, bringing you wit and wisdom, since 2018. We plan to keep the conversation going. Happy listening.

Just add your items to the basket and go to the checkout which is now using Stripe payments but Paypal is still an option. If you have any problems please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
