Replacement Trees 14 Nov 2016
We have relatively modest ongoing costs, so have survived largely on our initial sponsorship. But we now have a fairly substantial repair and maintenance task for the coming year. This includes: we have lost five of our original plantings. Our overall planting was some seventy trees, so the attrition rate is not severe, but does need to be addressed. We need to replace the lost trees. We need to improve the fertility, drainage and weed control around each tree. This programme was suggested by a team from the RHS who were visiting the village. We need to improve the grass cutting and weed control and general environment of the overall site. For a single tree the cost would be minimal. But for seventy trees that small amount becomes quite a substantial figure.

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.
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.
