Coronavirus update

Our board of Trustees have made the difficult but prudent decision to pause all our groups’ activities for the time being, to help protect our members from spread of Coronavirus. We do not want any of our members to feel isolated, however, so our volunteers will keep in touch with each other by phone, and will ring any members who would welcome calls. Any members who would like check-in calls please get in touch. You are not abandoned, and we hope soon to see everyone back enjoying Friend to Friend.

Love to all!

AGM date set

Meltham Meal’s surprise donation

Party-goers at Meltham Meal’s Christmas meal on Friday 7th had a double surprise, to welcome not only unexpected visitor Dan Schofield, of DS Recruiting Services Ltd, but his very generous donation of £250 to Friend to Friend in lieu of sending Christmas cards this year! He didn’t want a fuss at the time, but we hope he will forgive us giving him a mention here. Trustees, members and volunteers were all hugely grateful for this very selfless gesture!

Many thanks to Dan (pictured here with trustee John Lines) and his company.

Donation from Holmfirth High School

thankyou

We have this week banked a very generous donation of £1,000 from a non-uniform day held at Holmfirth High in aid of our charity. We are overwhelmed by this generosity and the Holmfirth members gave them a round of applause so loud they might have heard it back at school! Our trustees will be writing to the school with a formal ‘thank you’ but we wanted to shout our thanks publicly as well.
