A big thank you to everyone who joined us at the Christmas fair this year and to Tadcaster Girl Guiding who worked with us for the day. Our new tea shop was well supported, the teddies flew off the tombola and Santa had a whale of a time in his new grotto in our building. We trust you had as much fun as we did. Over Christmas we will be taking a well earned rest, so we will be closed from 23rd December to 2nd January. If you need transport, leave a message on our answer phone as our staff will...
‘As part of its birthday celebrations Sainsbury’s is giving all of its colleagues a day off work to help in their local communities under its 150 Days of Community initiative’. We were fortunate enough that our local store kindly donated some of their days to us. They came with wellies and spades, helping reclaim our garden. The weather was kind and a fun day way had by all. We at TVCSA thank them all for the hard work.
Dr Notley has retired as a Trustee at our AGM, we are sad to see him go and thank him for his work with the association since is inception. Mrs Joan Bateman has kindly stepped up from Fundraising Co-Ordinator to take the vacant Trustee position. We look forward to working with her.
One of the project for our knitting group is knitting policeman. When a child is involved in an accident the police give out these knitted policemen to comfort them. They sent out a request for people to make the policeman so they could carry on this work. The group felt that it was a brilliant project and hope their contribution will help children in the future.
Jake is a regular volunteer, who help in the shop and behind the scenes, and we are pleased that he has recently won 5 gold, 3 silver and a bronze medal. He competed at the East Midlands Inclusive Games in various swimming events. Congratulations from everybody at TVCSA.
All our journey prices are being reduced by 50p this year. How is that for service with a smile (and a discount)! The support we have received though our shop has provided a new income, which has made this possible. Thank you to everyone on behalf of all at TVCSA, especially our clients.
