The organisation is a registered charity, we have no paid employees and none of our committee or other volunteers are paid for their time.
The donations we receive from car, minibus passengers and others are used primarily to cover the running costs of our minibus and other general administrative expenses such as telephone bills, mileage payments etc. We also raise additional funds by holding coffee mornings in two of the local sheltered housing sites and by providing refreshments at the Hazlemere Fete and at the local gardening show.
Due to our successful fundraising activities over the past few years we were able to replace our old minibus in July 2018 with an ex demo White Peugeot Boxer which only had 13k miles on the clock. This has also given us a larger seating capacity of 13 passengers plus the driver.
Our fundraising now is for general maintenance and running costs of the minibus plus putting funds aside for when we will need to replace the it again.
In 2017 we did 193 minibus journeys on shopping trips, visits to clubs and other social outings, travelling some 3551 miles.
So please donate what you can and help us to continue to expand this valuable service to the elderly and disabled in our community.
Hazlemere & Widmer End Good Neighbours are pleased to acknowledge the support it gets from other organisations. We are particularly grateful for the assistance of ‘Wingrove Services’ ‘ in developing this website and the continuing support of JNP estate Agents for maintaining our phone line. The Hazlemere Co-op kindly donated it’s money for the sale of plastic bags in 2016 and we are very pleased to say it has chosen Good Neighbours as one of their fundraising partners for 2017 and 2018.
