Reuben’s Retreat Champions

Each month we will feature individual(s) who have done something we believe makes them worthy of being crowned a Reuben’s Retreat Champion! There is no set criteria and we know each month there will be more than one! Every single one of our supporters is a champion in some way, we are truly thankful to every single one of them.

August 2015 Champions 

 Our champions this month are very aptly named, carrying out Angels work.

I hope that you will visit our lodge in October, to see for yourselves the input that this incredible company have had on the end result of our lodge.

Months ago we were introduced to them via John Lewis and their community project.  Having worked with many charities in the past, they were keen to explore our vision to see how they could support.

We made our way around the lodge and shared our plans and lists were made.

Months later we submitted a list and hoped that they would be able to fulfil some of it.

They offered to supply all of it, as a charitable donation.

We were bowled over.

The furniture arrived for our lodge in August and it is magnificent.

It sits and stands proudly in both of our counselling suites, our function room and has furnished our entire apartment.

This months champions are “Halo living” in conjunction with John Lewis.

Thank you to Beverley and the team for their hard work, dedication and time given.

In all they have donated over £25,000 worth of magnificent furniture.

Recent Work

 
“Earlier in the year, we worked on a joint scheme with John Lewis in Liverpool by providing furniture with a value of £9,225.00. The Open Door Centre is a tiny charity which offers a drop-in facility for young people with mental health issues and access to services is free and immediate. We have helped create a quirky, colourful and relaxing space used regularly by over 175 young people, when demand for their services has never been higher. It has been a privilege to be part of this transformation.”
