Just as the firstl cuckoo each year heralds the coming of summer, so to does the opening of Bourne Outdoor Pool. This year the pool celebrates its 100th anniversary and we have been pleased to provide the organising committee with a grant of £10,000.00 to assist in the provision of replacement boilers.
Our Chairman Gerry was invited to officially open the pool and although, declining the committee's invitation to join in the mass jump in which traditonally starts the season, he did pay tribute to the organising committee and volunteers who maintain this very worthwhle asset to an extremely high standard each year for the benefit of the community.
Our founder and his wife were great supporters of the Pool during their lifetimes and we are very pleased to be able to continue that support.
Chairman Gerry Burrows was pleased to visit the Bourne First Responder volunteers at their monthly training evening recently at Bourne Fire Station to see how the group are using the equipment and supplies which the Trust purchased for them earlier in the year. All responders are volunteers and the Bourne Group provide 24 hour emergency response and first aid cover throughout our area.
The responders’ actions save lives; they get there fast to deliver that vital immediate care to their neighbours in those critical first moments before handing over to the ambulance service.
Len Pick Trust Vice-Chairman Kevin Day together with fellow trustee, Kay Henderson, were delighted to meet Nicola Brister, lead counsellor of the new 'Don’t Lose Hope Charity ' last week at the former Nat West Bank premises in Bourne to hand over a cheque for £10,000.00 to this new charity. Work has commenced on altering the premises which will be the charity's headquarters once refurbishment is completed The Charity will offer a professional counselling service for all members of the community from age 4 upwards. This will be a free service for families/individuals receiving certain state benefits and affordable to all others. This service will be delivered by a team of qualified and experienced counsellors in private fully equipped counselling rooms.
Don’t Lose Hope will also provide a community cafe which will offer access to support groups, workshops, and advice. The café will be open every day and run by volunteers and trained professionals. This will be a space where anyone will be able to drop in and find someone to talk to, get involved in activities, make friends or just have a slice of cake and a cup of tea.
Kevin said, “This is really an inspirational and exciting volunteer led project which we are sure will bring significant benefits to the local community and we are delighted to offer our support”. Receiving the cheque Nicola Brister said, “We are truly grateful for the very generous support of the Trust at this formative stage of our journey - Thank you Len Pick!
