BASIC Life Charity Update – March 2016

When BASIC started one of our dreams was that people would feel so inspired by our work that they would do all the things you hear about – like running in the London Marathon for us.

Well, this year it’s come true as the intrepid Dave Ainsley is about to do just that for us!

Dave has been training hard in preparation for the big day. The Virgin London Marathon is on 24th April and of course we’d welcome your support.

Donations can be made via either of our shops or online via Dave’s Virgin Money Giving page. Links to this are below, on our website and our Facebook page.

Special thanks to Darren Walne and Searon Logistics for sponsoring Dave’s running vest!

Later this month we’ll be celebrating Easter and of course it’s a very special time for the local Christian community with services taking place throughout the town.

As usual Churches Together in Felixstowe will be holding their annual services in the Triangle. For those who don’t go to church it’s a great opportunity to go – without going!

Over the last few months the East of England Co-Op have been including BASIC in their green token scheme. We’ve been delighted to see our box in the lead for most of the time and we’ve heard that we won the first prize of £500!

This money will be put to good use in our community and we’d like to thank every person who put their tokens in our box!

Darren Wash and the local Solar team have supported us with our food bank from day one and we’d also like to extend our thanks to the whole team for their continued support.

As the sun begins to break through and we start thinking about more breaks why not consider the BASIC beach hut for a quiet time by the sea?

It’s on the front row at Brackenbury and costs just £15 a day to rent. We already have bookings for this year but if you fancy a break please contact our Walton shop on 279400.

Finally a big thank you to everybody who continues to support us.

We hope this spring will offer the opportunity for new beginnings, a time of growth and also appreciation for the lovely community we’re part of.
