Kings and Queens 2016
Kings and Queens is on Saturday, 2 July 2016 on The Green, Danebury Avenue, Roehampton SW15 and we are looking forward to having "The Other Guys" performing again for us this year. We will be celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday in the presence of the Deputy Mayor of Wandsworth and Justine Greening MP. The event will be sponsored by Wandsworth Council and a number of local Trusts and will host 400 elderly residents of Roehampton and the surrounding area. The event starts at 1 pm and will conclude at 5 pm. Hillsong London will be supporting by providing around 90 volunteers to make the day a great success.
The event is free and if you are over 60 and live in SW15, please telephone 020 8780 9330 for tickets or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to volunteer please contact Mo at the same email address for further information.
Thank you to Waitrose in the Putney Exchange and East Putney for giving us 8 tickets to the Queen's 90th Birthday Party at Windsor. It was a great event for staff, volunteers and clients to attend.
Thank you to Hilda Bogg's family for arranging a fundraising event on Saturday, 4 June to enable RISE to purchase a second minibus. We are so grateful and will announce how much was raised in the near future.
