Bourne Free 2018

For the fourth year running we got involved in the local Pride festival. It’s quite a magnificent celebration of equality and diversity in the Bournemouth community. Read more about this year’s event (previous years – 2017, 2016)

Street Collections

Street collections are a very strange experience – you can get to feel totally invisible without taking anything illicit! You only need turn out for an hour or two and its very much a case of the more the merrier.  They do generate valuable income (about £350 in 2014, £280 2015, £227 2016, £161 2017) and exposure.  However, after quite a low turnout and return from the Bournemouth and Christchurch collections in 2017, this year we are just going to focus on Wareham (where traditionally they have been very generous.) If you wish to help please let us know via the contact link rather than just turning up.
