Supporting local charity is important to Greaves – and particularly at this time of year. In 2017 we are pleased to be supporting 2 local events covering the complete spectrum from young to old. The events also bring focus onto difficulties that are particularly prevalent at this time of year, loneliness and homelessness.
Community Christmas Dinner
Christmas can sometimes be the loneliest time of year, especially for the vulnerable and elderly people that live in our local area.
Without families, or friends, people can find themselves alone at this festive period, so the team at Evolving Fitness Gym has joined forces with local business sponsors, including Joshua Greaves to host a community Christmas dinner at 2.30pm on Thursday 21st December 2017 at Haslingden Cricket Club.
Anyone who might find themselves apart from family or friends on Christmas Day is welcome to come along.
Alternatively, if you know someone in your local community who will be alone this Christmas, please contact the team. We can personally invite them to join the celebrations
To get in touch, please call Nichola McCloud on 07925237485 or Lisa Foster on 07984467053. Alternatively, email Nikkipearson99@icloud.com
Don’t forget the children – or the homeless…
As well as those who find themselves on their own at Christmas, everyone at Greaves is only too aware of the increasing numbers who find themselves homeless over Christmas. Therefore, as part of our ongoing commitment to work with Helping Manchester and Bury Homeless (helpingmanchesterandburyhomeless.org.uk) throughout the year, we are supporting their Christmas fundraising.
On Saturday 16th December, the charity is hosting a Kids Christmas Party Fundraiser at The Mosses Centre in Bury. Starting at 12 noon, there will be a Children’s disco, food and a visit from Santa.
Tickets are £5 for Children and £1 for adults. All proceeds are going to Helping Manchester and Bury Homeless. Click here to view the event flyer
