Success Across The Board

Thursday 15th October was the evening of our race night kindly hosted by The Hare & Hounds in Speen.

The event was a sell-out and it was a fantastic evening of entertainment. A total of 8 races took place and thanks go to all our sponsors which include: The Hare & Hounds; Donnington New Homes; Content Wall; Newbury & District; Fisher Foods; TSB and Westronics.

Over £1,500 was raised and thank you to everyone who came along and supported us on the evening.

 

 

Dress Loud in Style

Swings & Smiles is one of only two local charities to benefit from Global’s Make Some Noise.

Global’s Make Some Noise is a national charity, established in 2014, that helps disadvantaged children and young people across the UK –   funding projects which support youngsters who may have been affected by illness, disability, bereavement or lack of opportunity.

A group of families who use Swings & Smiles helped launch the day with their ‘Dress Loud‘ campaign. Costa Coffee in Parkway Shopping Centre invited Swings & Smiles to promote this campaign at their store.

A huge thank you to Kellie and Julie for organising such a great event and helping us to continue to raise our profile.

Golfing Glory

22nd September 2015 was our Annual Golf Day and, yet again, the event was a fantastic success.

A total of 14 teams braved not only the fairways but also the weather at times! Donnington Valley Golf Club provided the perfect setting for this wonderful day out and fun was had by all. DHL were the winning team and Swings & Smiles were also winners because, thanks to everyone’s wonderful generosity, around £2,400 was raised. A huge thank you must go to Donnington Valley Golf Club for providing us with the venue and Donnington Valley Hotel for the most delicious food and wine. A big thank you also goes to Infiniti who were  sponsors of the day.

We are already looking forward to next year!
