Supporter Focus

27 October 2022

This month we would like to thank and highlight the work of two supporters who have made us their charity of the year.

Meriliis Rinne

We would like to thank talented local artist, Meriliis Rinne (Meru), for her continued support. Meru is donating 10% of her sales this year, with her first donation is on its way to us soon!

Meru sells her beautiful artwork at Enzo’s Italian Restaurant in Windsor, where customers enjoy seeing her new colourful landscapes on the walls, along with their delicious food.

Meru told us: “I have chosen to help young and vulnerable people, as we see we cannot choose how and where we are born but we can make the choices how we make our future.”

We are extremely grateful to Meru for her support of our local young people.

Lifecycle Software

Lifecycle Software continued their fabulous fundraising efforts earlier this month, with their very own paddle challenge. Supported by young leaders from Waterside Centre, Lifecycle staff, family and friends had fun completing the challenge along the Kennet and Avon Canal.

The Lifecycle team have now almost reached their £2,000 fundraising target to pay for new Zorbs at Waterside Centre.

Please visit their JustGiving page to donate.

Thank you so much to everyone at Lifecycle for your outstanding enthusiasm and dedication!
