Headington Festival 27 May 2016
The festival takes place over a weekend in early June. The objectives are to a) develop a sense of community b) support local charities and community groups c) improve the health and well being of residents d) to support local businesses The focus on the Saturday is on the retail centre. Typically there will be a street market, street entertainment, an arts event for children, and a shop window competition. The main event takes place in the park on the Sunday at which local groups set up stalls to raise funds, increase awareness of their projects and give out information about their activities. In addition there are sports 'taster' sessions, plus various forms of entertainment. Last year there were about 40 stalls (consisting of community groups, local charities, youth groups, information groups, conservation groups etc.) The types of entertainment include, typically, a magician, dance acts, singing, messy play, storytelling and a brass band. The Festival and most of the activities are free of charge. The festival relies on funds from local businesses and grant giving bodies. Without such financial support the festival could not run.

Response Giving 14 Nov 2016
One of our aims is to bring enjoyment to people coping with sever mental illness. Many are not able to access ordinary social activities because of the devastating effect severe mental illness has. Often their lives are totally transformed in a horrible way and they are unable to continue with their plans. This knowledge can be very depressing. "Response giving" aims to organise fun events and pleasurable activities in places they are familiar with and so they can relax and enjoy. One of these is our "fun BBQ" in the grounds of one of the homes. We have various activities - tombola, raffle, mystery lucky dip, "guess the name of grandma bear" as well as a delicious BBQ. All very inexpensive to our guests. All this costs money and we are always looking at ways to make it even happier. With your grant we could hire some live music for a simple sing along and we could hire and entertainer. We need a gazebo or two. All this would make huge difference to this project.
