Team Work Makes the Dream Work
Freddie Mann and his Daddy, Ollie, had decided to ride 26km on their bikes to raise money for us during this Coronavirus pandemic. It was such a brilliant surprise and people have already been soooo hugely supportive. But there’s more ….they’ve done so well that they’ve decided to increase their target to 26 MILES!
Freddie is almost 9 years old and has many additional needs including a severe learning disability and physical impairements so this is a big challenge for him. He is mad about James Cordon’s Carpool Karaoke on YouTube, all ball games and cycling with his Daddy.
Now the ride is over and Freddie has raised over £3500 for us! So amazing!

Pebble Painting for Entrust!
How captivating are these delightful pebble paintings, from these lovely youngsters, the daughters of Kim Charles. Kim’s one of our Care Partners who usually supports our team of trainee barista’s.
Thank you so much girls, you’re doing a fantastic job and we really appreciate your lovely artwork! You’ve raised £255 so far!
If you’d like to encourage the girls please donate to Entrust through GoFundMe at this link.
“Thanks also to our local Rotary clubs – Thank you, Warwick, for your donation of £100 following Lynne’s presentation, and also Stratford Rotary Club, who’s contributions in recent years for our Celebrating Children event was much appreciated”.
"THANK YOU Kenilworth Ladies Circle!"
By adopting Entrust as their chosen beneficiary for 2019, we were absolutely delighted to receive a totally unexpected £5,500 from the Kenilworth Ladies Circle.
This generous donation will make a real difference, not only to those families who we already work with but also those who we have yet to meet. so on their behalf we thank you most warmly
“Thank you so much the Leamington Spa Strummers Ukulele Band who generously nominated £250 towards services we provide. Our very own Mal Leeman, nanny to Emily and George who comes to Toddler Group, nominated us, thank you so much for your kindness and thinking of Entrust”.
So many ways you can support us!
If you go into the woods today … these little teddy bears helped us raise funds …
Delightful and unique, these Beau Henry Bears were handmade for us with love by Angela and all went to good homes – where they are hopefully enjoying lots of picnics!
If you are handy with that needle and think you can create lovely little soft toys that we can sell to raise money – please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you! And you can be sure that your help will raise more funds to directly support services for disabled children and families.

Thank You Co-op!
Did you read about how popular our Siblings Groups have been over the past two years? Well, we can only run them with funding and you lovely Co-Op customers helped us do just that – ever time you shopped and used your Co-Op card, 1% of what you spent on Co-op branded products and services funded our community project – to the tune of £1,800!!
Thank you again – we’re going to be using this money to fund a Siblings Group, just as soon as we can all get together again!
Join us at our regular Coffee Morning to sell raffle tickets ….. or serve the drinks …… man our Used Book Stand. Make a homemade cake for us to sell!
Nominate us as your chosen beneficiary if you’re doing a sponsored run or swim – just like Emma did at the Two Castles run!
We are a not-for-profit organisation who rely upon the generosity of grant givers, our service users, family, friends and others to raise income to provide the much needed services for disabled children, young people and adults.
Fundraising is vitally important to us and critical in helping us continue the work we do. The stark reality is that if we don’t raise money we will not be able to run our projects.
A great deal of what we have achieved up to now is due to the fact that we have been given time, resources, and skills free of charge. The Toddler Group monthly visitor activities is a good example of this – Tunes and Tales, children’s photographs, massage, Sing and Sign and visits from Santa all cost us nothing. We take this opportunity to thank all our supporters thus far – without your help we would not be where we are today.
We do not want to, and indeed cannot, rely on statutory agencies for income to provide services so please help if you can. You just need enthusiasm, persuasiveness, persistence, good social skills, and the ability to ask.
Whether it is 50p or £50,000, every penny can provide something which makes a difference and these small contributions can mean a lot. 50p would buy 5 photocopied sheets of important detail for 5 new families- we so often hear how difficult it is to obtain up-to-date information.
