Another great night at The Regency. Thank you to all who supported this event. As usual, this was a challenging evening, trying to win on the horses, some did and some didn’t but lots of fun as usual. A very BIG thank you again to Mark, Tom, Julie and Steve for all their hard work behind the bar and for making the gang so welcome.

RED ADMIRAL FUNDRAISER 12TH MAY 2018

On Saturday 12th May 2018 the Staff at the Red Admiral Pub, Alexander Parade, Weston-super-Mare held a fundraiser in memory of our friend and volunteer Marie, who passed away on 18th October 2017 after a short illness. It would have been Marie’s 65th birthday on 12th May 2018. We all still miss her fun, laughter and company.

I want to say a big Thank you to all the staff and customers at The Red for their kindness, generosity and continued support towards EnergEyes. I would also like to say a big Thank You to Louise, Jo and Emma, Marie’s daughters, for continuing to support EnergEyes.

MAYOR’S CHOSEN CHARITY 2017-2918

In May 2017 I had a phone call from the Mayor’s Civic Officer informing me that EnergEyes was one of the chosen charities of the new Mayor Jos Holder. What a great honour for our humble charity!

In May this year I was invited along to the Mayor’s Parlour to receive a cheque. This money will go a long way towards funding future activities and I want to say a big Thank You to the Mayor for all her hard work over the past year and an even bigger Thank You for choosing EnergEyes.

Aileen Milsom, Chairman

FREEMASON’S PRESENTATION SATURDAY 23RD SPETEMBER 2017 MASONIC HALL TIVOLI LANE WESTON-SUPER-MARE

EnergEyes were invited to the above event in order to be presented with a cheque from the Birnbeck Freemasons. The members and volunteers who supported us enjoyed a very profitable day; not just financially. With the help of friends I was able to present a video and slide show depicting what EnergEyes have enjoyed over the last four years. Members of the public and several Freemasons showed a great deal of interest in our charity and were amazed by what the members participate in and how much fun they have. This presentation promoted very clearly that having a disability does NOT prevent anyone from taking part in ANY event if the correct safety provisions and assistance are in place. Thank you for all who supported us on the day.
