Just thought I send out a quick reminder that this Saturday 12th July Impact has organised their own sponsored cycle ride for the Joel Project to help them keep people off the streets and continue to build on the work already begun. This is a great cause and people end up without a roof over their heads for many reasons. Try and remove the typical image of the drunk on a bench and think of people who's relationships have fallen apart of families that have driven them out, people who have lost their jobs, and these are often the kind of people who the Joel Project help when no one else is able to.
I have now given you quite a few links to follow at your leisure over the weekend!

TEDDY BEARS' PICNIC - FRIDAY 21 JUNE - 9.30am-11.30am. This will be held on the Hook Playing Field (behind Hook Pre-school) - limited parking. Remember to bring a teddy bear and a rug. This event will be cancelled if it is raining so please look on our website if in doubt. We look forward to seeing you all there.
On Friday, 5 April we plan to return to Morden Hall Park, Morden Hall Road, London SM4 5JD for a walk and a picnic lunch together. Although this is a National Trust property it is free to everyone and parking is free also. We plan to meet at 11am by the little bridge in front of the National Trust Shop which is on the left of the garden centre which can be seen from the car park.
Directions: A3 forward at Malden roundabout and continue over flyover at Shannon corner A268 to Merton. Keep right and at second set of traffic lights turn right into Martin Way. Keep going passed Morden Underground Station and also a large store on the right and keeping to the right turn right into Aberconway Road. At end turn right into Morden Hall Road and and then left into the park and drive into the car park. Meet up at 11am but if you are late we plan to visit Deen City Farm first as this is a small working farm with animals and which is of great interest to the children. We usually lunch in the picnic area where there is also a play area.
For more detailed information about the park visit their website at email@example.com. Siblings and ‘old Little Rascals’ are welcome. Please remember to bring your lunch and Wellington boots and, of course, am umbrella! If it is raining heavily this event will be cancelled.
There is a quiz night for Morning Star - a school in South Africa for children with HIV/AIDS - at Hook Evangelical Church, Brook Road, Surbiton on Saturday 29th September 2012 at 7.30pm.
The cost is £2 per person with all proceeds going to Morning Star.
We need teams of 6 - 8 people but if you can't manage that sign up anyway and it will be sorted out on the night.
The sign up sheet is on the Welcome Desk in the church or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you - hope to see you there.
