CHARITY NEWS IN BRIEF…
• Creations formed a partnership link with Stonepillow. Stonepillow offers shelter, information and support to empower homeless and vulnerable people to make positive changes in their lives. The team at creations dedicate 6 hours every month to visit the day centre to do ‘haircuts for the homeless.’
• 2013 was a huge year for us, this was the year the creations team embarked upon a marathon task of rowing 26 miles across the Channel to raise money for our trip to Africa. We completed the challenge in record time…. Also Claire Panton jumped from a plane and completed a skydive and we attended various family days and events to promote out trip to Africa and help raise money. It was a busy 2013! The team successfully built 2 houses in October 2014, set up community gardens and implemented a feeding programme for 500 children.
• Through our salon service Wigs@Creations, we team up with local hospice The Rowans in Waterlooville and St Wilfrid’s in Chichester, along with Spire Hospital in Havant to host pamper days to carers and patients. This is some of the most rewarding work we do.
