News and updates


All activites and social gatherings suspended until further notice.

Here is an extract of a message from Different Strokes headquarters:

"Following the most recent updates regarding the coronavirus we have held an emergency meeting this morning to discuss how best to deal with this.
As a result we have made the decision that all group meetings are to be suspended with immediate effect until further notice.
This is not a decision we have made lightly, but the health & welfare of all our volunteers and group members must come first."

Watch this space for updates on when our activies wil re-start.


Our own Di Summers-Long's volunteering has been nationally recognised. Well deserved and congratulations, Di.

Di is the winner of the Peter Shave Volunteer of the Year Award 2019. Many congratulations on a well deserved award.
