JOHN LEWIS WAREHOUSE DONATION
1 May 2033. Great news! The Centre was recently one of four organisations each receiving £2,000 from John Lewis Warehouse.
The money was raised from the sale of samples and our Chair of Trustees, Catherine Hall and Fundraising Trustee, Sandy Payne were delighted to collect the donation from Anne Dodds and have tea and delicious cakes with her!
Many thanks to everyone at John Lewis for supporting Brooklands - the money is going towards improvements at the Centre.
FUNDRAISING EASTER TABLETOP SALE
25 April 2022. Recently, our Day Club Manager, Sandra; Fundraising Trustee, Sandy Payne, and artistic Member, Florence, spent time making items for the Centre's Easter tabletop sale.
They washed cuddly toys bought from charity shops and added Easter eggs, transformed bars of soap into lillies, and made lots of yellow chicks to go over Cadbury cream eggs - thanks to Florence. Cushions were made and wine bottles were converted into lights - all added to by various items brought in by Members.
The Easter gifts were sold to anyone who visited the Centre, raising around £500. Well done to everyone who contributed!

The letter says: "The Queen would like me to thank you for the messages you sent on the occasion of Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee.
