On Monday we held our Change 4 Life event, I also invited slimming world and we talked to customers about swapping one food for another to help cut down on sugar, fat and salt. Slimming World told customers about the sessions they hold and we also had information on our stop smoking help group via our Pharmacy.
On 8/01/14 CLC Rachel Mansfield (3rd L), visited Somewhere to Go in Weston-super-Mare. I handed over all our clothing that was collected at Christmas and the centre is open every Monday, Wednesday & Friday to homeless, drug, alcohol, mental health people. Today I helped register new people, help with the dinner and have general conversations with the people that use the centre. Some of the people that now volunteer for here was ex addicts that wish to give something back to the centre.I felt really humbled today after speaking to them and not realising how lucky we are.
CLC Rachel Mansfield and Store Manager Jeremy Kinsey presented the winners cheque to Gemini Children's Appeal (Chapter One) who won the customer vote in the Nov/Dec voting session. Gemini children are part of a family that have had to flee Domestic Abuse in the year.

Santa's Elf helper was on hand to gift wrap customers presents for a donation of £1.00. We raised money for Somewhere to Go in Weston-super-Mare that is a place where homeless, people with life problems, mental health problems etc can go and get a hot meal, showers, clean new clothes and lots more. We also held a clothes donation and we ended up with over 20 black sacks full of items that we will pass on to them.
