It is also possible, via this website, to download a pdf of the newsletter to read onscreen or to print out.

Included in this issue are:

  • ‘They’ve done it again’ – a report by CL chairman, Margaret M. Clark, on the Soulstice Big Payback event on August Bank Holiday Sunday, when a £50,000 big cheque was handed over to us. CL is extremely grateful to Summer Soulstice for their ongoing support (over half a million pounds raised since 2007).
  • ‘Mindfulness in Cherry Lodge’, by Jeanette McCulloch and Fiona Kiddle, announcing that Jeanette, a volunteer, will be offering face to face mindfulness meditation at CL from October.

  • The ‘Bits & Pieces’ board, with notices including: places available for the 2024 London Marathon; Summer Soulstice 2024 to take place on 15th June; an appeal for Matched Funders; and appeal for used cartridges to be recycled to raise funds.
  • The ‘Our Services & Approach’ page, a very useful summary with newly updated information.
