in Milford-on-Sea Community Centre
A new event idea came to Milford-on-Sea on a wet Saturday but the weather did not dampen the
spirits of keen jigsaw puzzle fans. The event was very well supported and a great deal of fun
was had by all - who had ever seen so many jigsaws in one place?
over 60 made up jisaws on display and to buy.............only open 5 minutes and they are flying out!
jigsaws here..............and jigsaws here
more jigsaws here ....... and jigsaws everywhere even on a quilt
and on a cake in the raffle - prizes including a framed jigsaw!
Dozens of people supported the event both making and donating jigsaws and buying
more to make another day.
A magnificant £900 was raised - thanks to the
NFDIS Fundraising Team and
everyone who helped, bought and supported.
28 January 2018
New Forest National Park Volunteer Fair
at Lyndhurst Community Centre
and NFDIS was there
We were delighted to talk to so many interesting people and over 600 attended the event!
Above photos show Outreach Co-ordinator Geraldine with our stand at the event.
We spoke to prospective volunteers about our role in the community and
introduced many to the Independence Matters Project that we are promoting
in partnership with New Forest District Council. Discussing how sometimes simple
adaptations or equipment can make the difference to people being independent
and staying in ther own homes after illness, accident or age related issues might in
the past have meant they needed to move.
Contact us if you would like information about this or any issue related to
living independently with a health issue or disability.
