Happy New Year to all our friends and supporters

As we start 2022 we want to say thank you to everyone who helped Loose Ends throughout, what was for many, a difficult year.  We had generous support from lots of local businesses, groups and organisations as well as many individual donations.  However you chose to give to us we are very grateful to you.

Thank you all

We want to say a special thanks to Irwin Mitchell and everyone at their Reading and Newbury offices who chose Loose Ends to recieve a fantastic Christmas  donation from their community fund of £2500. This generous donation is going to be an enormous help to us and is very much appreciated!

We served a traditional Christmas lunch the Sunday before Christmas, with all the trimmings, to around 50 clients – a very busy shift! Gift bags were given out which included vouchers plus a selection of toiletries, chocolates and coffee, which we were able to supply from donations to our Amazon Wish list.

Loose Ends is on the Move

Loose Ends will be leaving their current home at the end of March 2022 as we will no longer be able to operate from Morton Hall. We are lucky enough to be partnering with Newbury Cricket Club, who are rebuilding their club house, and we will share this with them. We are fundraising for the move and for future developments and operating costs and would be very grateful for any donations received. Please follow the link below.
