Outing to Odds Farm
On a gloriously sunny Tuesday April 4th we organised an outing to Odds Farm for around 20 families. The families are all supported by Alana House, The Weller Centre and Homestart Reading.
One mum said "It was a fantastic day for all what you did for my children and family loved the day out hope many more comes up and we can go again and the weather was brilliant and the children didn’t wanted to come home xx"
Thanks to all our supporters who have donated in recent times. You have enabled us to put all these smiles on so many faces.
Reading Family Aid Donate Easter Eggs
One of the charities supported by Reading Family Aid held an Easter Party and we were able to provide each child with an Easter Egg. Yum!
At most golf clubs there is a tradition of new captains choosing one or more charities for whom they will fundraise in the club for that year.
Reading Golf Club follows this tradition and this year Cathy Jones, Club Captain and Hilary Rusby, Ladies Captain have chosen to support Reading Family Aid. Any fundraising events that the Club hold during the year will generate funds for us.
On a surprisingly sunny afternoon on April 2nd the two new captains of Reading Golf Club drove off to mark the beginning of their year's. Reading Golf Club's new home is The Caversham in Chazey Heath.
Here are Cathy and Hilary driving off after the preceding captains have "putted out".
At the "Drive In" they asked members to guess the combined distances of their drives for a small fee. £133 was raised on this their first day. Ruth Perkins, RFA's Fundraising Mgr attended the event and was able to say "Thankyou very much Reading Golf Club for choosing us this year".
This is where we share our news and inspiring stories of how people have supported us.
