OH NO….. NOT AGAIN…….BUT…….

DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND….!!!!!!



We have reluctantly decided to postpone the Helping Hands Pub Quiz….in your own home, on Sunday 8th June.

A large number of our supporters expressed disappointment at being unable to participate in the quiz, because of the holiday season and that they would be away.

We have listened and taken on board their comments. They suggested that we should hold the quiz towards the end of autumn, which will enable more members of the community to participate in the quiz. Helping Hands will also benefit by maximising the potential income needed towards the purchase of our new bus.

NEW DATE

We are very sorry for the short notice and hope that you will support us by taking part on Sunday 2nd November 2014.

SPECIAL PRIZE DRAW

If you can register your team by 10th September by emailing or phoning Helping Hands, your team will be entered into a special prize draw.

DEADLINE

The last date to register for the quiz will be Sunday 19th October.

MEANWHILE….. if you're not away on the 8th June and were going to take part in the quiz, then why not come along to our afternoon tea at 2.30pm at the Ajex Hall, to see Helping Hands in action!! We would love to see you.

AND FINALLY…. if you know of anyone who needs a 'helping hand', or anyone who wishes to volunteer, please contact us on 01273 747722 or helping-hands@helping-hands.org



Message from a Helping Hands Client

"Fortunately my needs have not been great and of an emergency nature, but when there has been a problem my mind seems to spring to Helping Hands, where prompt attention, given in a warm and understanding way, has solved the problem"

How we started

It is hard to believe that what started as a casual conversation between four people would result in a Registered Charity with between ninety and one hundred volunteers, but this is what did happen

More than ten years ago, Sarah Wilks, Beryl Sharpe (Susex Jewish Representative Council) Rabbi Efune and Rabbi Collick were attending a choral concert at New Church Road, and during the interval were discussing the community, and they felt that what was needed was a support system to help people, especially those who were housebound

From that small 'acorn' a huge 'oak' has grown. Helping Hands is there for all the Jewish members of the local community.

Need a list for an appointment with the doctor, dentist, hospital? Call Helping Hands!

Would you like to go shopping but can't get to the shops? Call Helping Hands, they will take you! Is your sink blocked, is your computer not behaving itself, need a new light bulb fitted? Call Helping Hands

With the help of donations and coffee mornings we raised enough money to buy the Helping Hands Community Bus that can be 'hired' for use by private individuals, for example, to take a group to the theatre

There is no hiring fee, hence the quotation marks. All we ask for is a returnable deposit and that the passengers pay for the petrol. On alternate months, a tea is held at the AJEX Centre where everyone is assured of a warm welcome, tea, sandwiches, cake and entertainment

Our volunteers are amazing and are always willing to help. They are greatly appreciated by our clients

If you are interested in any of the above, or would like to join our team of volunteers, please phone us on 01273 747722 or email helping-hands@helping-hands,org Janice Greenwood
