Write for Rights 2018

Every year Amnesty International has encouraged and helped groups send greetings cards to prisoners of conscience around the world in December. Traditionally there were just half a dozen names selected.  In recent years Amnesty has branded this as “Write for Rights” (W4R) and produced much more informative information leaflets, covering many more prisoners of conscience. We have always made this a mainstay of our December meeting.

If you have been tempted to try one of our meetings, but never quite got there, this is an ideal opportunity.  But we also try to have a public event in Bournemouth. For the past few years we’ve been at Castlepoint – there is a “pod” you can book outside Marks and Spencers. This has partly due to difficulties doing anything in Bournemouth Square without having to pay! However, we have found a location where we can…  Join us or call and see us under the large clock next to MacDonalds, Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth on

Autumn Quiz 2018

You missed it! We had another successful quiz at the Brunswick in November. We raised a magnificent £250. Read more about what you missed here.

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.
