Chipping Norton 14 Nov 2016
We are 55 years old this year and have made the decision to transfer our operation into Chipping Norton. This will enable us to be more inclusive and accessible and to boost our recruitment. To celebrate 55 years and to offer maximum publicity for our move we need to have funds in addition to the monies received from members' subscriptions. We will advertise in local publications and invest in some publicity banners to use on a regular basis. We would like to organise a one off demonstration in Chipping Norton Town Hall inviting a national demonstrator to attract more members and promote the society. A grant will also help toward our reprinting of new stationery to reflect our new location.
Football for all 08 Jun 2016
The annual membership fee of £75 is prohibitively expensive for some of the young players and their families. Each year the club offers 5 bursaries funded through its general reserves. However, as the club has grown these five bursaries are not enough to help all the young people that need our support. £750 from Oxfordshire Community Foundation would pay for the membership of 10 more young people from deprived backgrounds allowing them to play foottball at our club. The membership fees cover all equipment, team kit, pitch hire, and associated match costs.
Adding extra sport and healthy living 18 Apr 2016
The money would help towards equipment needed to encourage the children to get involved in the sporting activities. We have one goal post, but a second would be helpful. Also hockey and badminton equipment would encourage more participation. We already have good table tennis facilities. It would be good also to encourage some of our junior leaders to take coaching awards. The snacks and cooking would be enhanced with a greater variety of ingredients and cooking equipment. The food bank provides us with some food- but resources to buy in other healthy ingredients would increase the variety on offer.

in 3 specific areas - 1) New kits and equipment for our football project and new social inclusion summer league 2) venue hire and session costs for volleyball and social inclusion league, including volunteer costs 3) marketing and advertising for sessions and league
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.
D.I.T.T.O 08 Jun 2016
In partnership with the Ice Centre we will use the grant to deliver workshops to train and empower members. We will purchase 3 laptops and 3 dongles to enable us to support members to get online, vital when applying for benefits. We will act as an advocate to assist in the intricate world of technology by assisting members to navigate the complex systems currently in place. We live in an age that requires us to be online as a matter of course. We will promote our service within in West Oxfordshire in the first instance and beyond as demand grows.
