Whiting & Partners, Chartered Accountants & Business Advisers , held a Coffee Morning at their Ramsey office on August 4th to support the Bobby Scheme.

Between 10am – 2pm businesses, customers and members of the public came along to enjoy scrumptious cakes,scones and other delicious food, take part in a raffle, as well as hear about the work of our charity.

A cheque was presented to us for £500 which was raised from the event.
We would like to thank all the staff at Whiting & Partners for their hospitality, their baking and for all their support and generosity for organising the event and raising these funds for us.

Grant from the Clothworkers' Foundation

We were extremely delighted to receive a grant of £10,000 to help us purchase security devices which will enable us to support and help more victims of domestic abuse.

The Clothworkers' Foundation was set up by The Clothworkers' Company in 1977 and aims to improve the lives of people and communities, particularly those facing disadvantage.

New Partnership with Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Service

We have teamed up with the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue service on a joint community safety initiative. The aim of the project which will run for one year, is to improve the safety of older and vulnerable residents in the county.

As well as carrying out home security on all of our visits, the two security advisors will also deliver Home Fire Safety checks, fit smoke detectors and complete the fire assessment checklists.

It is intended the project will:

- improve safety from fire and other emergencies
- increase the number of residents given fire safety advice
- improve feelings of safety and confidence
- avoid duplication, improve customer experience and efficiency through a co-ordinated approach.
