Gillingham, Mere and Shaftesbury Lions Club and ASDA Foundation

We are very fortunate that Gillingham, Mere and Shaftesbury Lions Club made a successful application  to the Asda Foundation on behalf of Hipp!!Bones.  Many thanks to GMS President  Brian Anderson and GMS Community Service officer  Denise Stenner who presented Hipp!!Bones Youth Support Worker in Charge Jeni Green with  various cooking equipment, Lego, kinetic sand, games, paper and lots lots more….

Kings Court Masonic Lodge

Many thanks to Roger from the King’s Court Masonic Lodge who presented Bones and Hipp!!Bones with a cheque to pay for the cost of installing a shared cooker.  Frustratingly, over the past year we have only been able to cook on a shared hob, or using other appliances such as a toaster or smoothie maker, but with creative planning we have managed to sustain member’s enthusiasm for cooking. Now we can expand on this to cook simple meals and snacks, developing members life skills as they transition into adulthood.

Dorset Council

Thanks to Dorset Council for their generous contributions towards our trips which makes a huge difference and enables them to be subsidised
