News and Updates

Mapperley and Arnold's COVID Can't Stop Santa 2020!

Our Christmas Charity collection has changed this year but is still going ahead. We are working with Santa to make sure he will be safe when he comes out with us. We are planning routes around Arnold, Bestwood, Woodthorpe, Woodborough and Calverton along with Santa being outside Morrisons in Netherfield, ASDA in Arnold, Mapperley shops and Tesco Top Valley. The dates and routes will be sent out before so you know when Santa is coming. We will not be doing the usual door to door collections so donations through our Just Giving page is so important to us.

Our Christmas funding last year raised a magnificent sum of £10,000 and we always try and increase upon that through other fundraising activities such as our annual charity golf day or high profile personality speaker events.

This year we completed Phase 1 of a major landscaping project in the gardens of the Hayward House Hospice at the City Hospital and due to the pandemic we are currently fighting, also gave much needed support to appeals from the Bestwood and Arnold foodbanks; these are just two recent examples of how we have been supporting our community for the last 35 years.

At home we have supported dozens of local causes such as Derrymount School (a minibus); When you wish upon a star; Outward Bound; Nottingham Youth Orchestra; Young Carers; Hearing Dogs for the deaf; Teenage Cancer Trust; Forever Stars and individual students for various award schemes or sports, and, each year, The Mayor of Gedling’s particular charity.

Thank you for making all these activities possible.
