THANKS to the generosity of Salisbury shoppers, our street collections during 2013 have provided the huge sum of £1,836.81 this year.
On Saturday, May 18 we raised £977.44 and on Saturday, September 14 it was £859.37.
Many people will remember the logo on our sweat shirts ‘Mencap – Making The Most of Life’ and this statement is always at the heart of the many services and projects offered by South Wilts Mencap for local youngsters and adults with a learning disability.
Opportunities include breakaway holidays and theatre trips, a regular music group, a New Horizon Gateway social club, fun days for 15 to 25-year-olds and a new club developed by four of our younger members called the ‘4 & More Club’ for the 18 to 30 age group with a focus on drama, art, photography and music. It’s great fun, but all costs money to run and continue.
Thank you once again.
JEREMY BUGDEN, South Wilts Mencap
I ORGANISED a concert which took place on Sunday, September 29 at St Martin’s Church in order to raise money in support of Wells Cathedral School Sierra Leone project.
The church was full and the audience were most generous, enabling us to raise £629.
I am about to leave for Sierra Leone where I will be teaching at the Balanta Music Academy in Freetown, and teaching English in a primary school.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped me with my fundraising.

ON behalf of our staff at Salisbury Walk In Health Centre, we would like to thank all the people of Salisbury who came to support our Macmillan coffee morning on Friday.
It was lovely to have so much local support and we were very grateful to Mayor Penny Brown for coming to support our efforts as well.
Thanks to donations of wonderful homemade cakes, we raised a total of £90.
