GNiNC go to the races!

We are delighted to have been chosen as the beneficiaries of a Race Night to be held by Llanishen Rotary Club.

The event is being held on 18th October, at 6:30pm for a 7pm start at the Lisvane Memorial Hall. Tickets are £7.50 which includes a light supper.  There will also be prizes for Race/Horse sponsors.  Why not buy a ticket for yourself, bring a friend, or even book a table for a fun night out! 

We would like to thank Llanishen Rotary for choosing us as their beneficiaries, and for all their support of Good Neighbours in North Cardiff. 

Mobility difficulties for people without a car - Wales Online article

Some of you may have been affected by the route changes implemented by Cardiff Bus which have resulted in the removal of services along Lake Road West. This Wales Online article on 28th July 2019 ( click here to read it ) talks specifically about the impact that the changes to those services has had. It also highlights the problems faced by people who do not have the use of a car and the effects of increased isolation. This is why Good Neighbours in North Cardiff exists. We offer help with transport to shops, doctors, social meetings etc, and we need to keep raising funds in order to provide our services. If you can help, either by volunteering or donating, please contact us. This is our Volunteer page  and our Orange Donate button is at the top of this page. 

July 2019 - A Surprise Donation

We have been surprised and delighted to receive a very generous donation from a friend of one of our former clients. Two of our volunteers had helped the client twice a week with visits and outings. Recently, a friend of the client came to our office and made a donation in gratitude for the support that we had given. Naturally we cannot identify the client or the donor, but it is so nice to know that our efforts have been noticed and appreciated. Our thanks to the two volunteers (Steve and Martin) for their efforts and to the donor for their gift for which we are extremely grateful, and which will enable us to carry on supporting other clients.

Grant application success!

A huge thank you to the Allen Lane Foundation who have accepted our application for support through their charitable foundation.  This will be a big help to our ongoing existence while we cement our future funding.  Thank you also to our Chair, Jonathan Lewis for his time on this application.

Spring Fayre April 6th 2019

A huge thank you to everyone who helped us organise or attended our Spring Sale on 6 April 2019 at Llanishen Baptist Church.  We collected an astonishing £553 on the day, and are hoping to also gather match funding from two local banks.  A great start to our financial year!

Thank you to Llanishen Baptist Church for their ongoing support!

 

Beulah United Reform Church Events

Thank you to the KIN group (Kindred Spirit) who kindly ran a coffee morning in support of GNiNC in March.  They raised a very welcome £400 for us.  Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to this event.

Thank you to Llanishen Rotary

Thank you to Angela Gorman, Joint President of Llanishen Rotary Club, who presented us with a cheque for £2,000. These were proceeds from the Club's sleigh run at Christmas. Many thanks to all that contributed.

Help with Fundraising

Following the advice from the Institute of Fundraising, we are in the process of adopting a number of approaches including seeking financial support from local businesses, applications to charitable trusts and, of course, running our own fundraising events. For the future, we are looking to seek support from the residents of north Cardiff and also introduce a legacy fundraising scheme. Our continued existence depends on us succeeding in these ventures so if you are able to help or offer advice, do contact us – we would love to hear from you.

Legacy Fundraising

The Trustees have agreed to develop a new venture to introduce legacy fundraising. Clearly there are legal and sensitivity issues as well as determining those who will be targeted by this initiative. In this context, the Trustees agreed to introduce a “client newsletter” which will be circulated on a regular (not necessarily frequent) basis. We will keep you informed on developments, but, as ever, if you have suggestions do let the office know.
