25th Apr 2017, The Mencap Project, South West Cornwall
The aim is to facilitate meaningful, potentially lifelong friendships, peer support groups, social networks and promote fun activities between young people with and without a learning disability.

We hope that friendships can be formed which will enable the person / people with a learning disability, to participate and get involved in social and community fun activities, i.e. go to clubs, concerts, activity groups, football matches, the cinema, play X box with a friend, go shopping, go to the beach, go swimming, do all the things that other young people do, but which they may have never been able to do before. Moreover, the person with a learning disability will be learning new life skills i.e. traveling on public transport, using and dealing with money, interacting and behaving in social and community settings. All of which will enhance and promote their own self-esteem, confidence and well-being, enabling them to become more independent and less isolated and vulnerable.

The initiative will also raise awareness and reduce stigma of learning disabilities in the younger generation, their friends and family and throughout local communities as a whole. Mencap Best Buddies may also enhance the employability of both the person with and without a learning disability via participation, skills attained and links and activities undertaken by collaborating organisations i.e. Colleges, Volunteer Cornwall, Cornwall Sports Partnership.

The project is open to everyone in Cornwall and we are currently forming relationships and collaborations with numerous other organisations, who can support and work with us to ensure the initiative is viable and sustainable for eventual national roll out.

1st Apr 2017, 24 Hour Music Marathon, Blue Peter Inn, Polperro, Cornwall
I represent Polperro Refugee Aid, a community group involved in raising funds for child victims of war. We are currently organising a 24 hour music marathon, which will be held at the Blue Peter Inn, Polperro. The event will begin at midday on Saturday 1st April and finish at midday on Sunday 2nd April. Local musicians are giving their time to provide non-stop music during opening hours and the music will continue through the night by invite only.

Polperro Refugee Aid came about when Rosie, aged 11, saw some harrowing footage of the plight of the Syrian refugee children, fleeing their homeland in search of safety. She found it very upsetting and decided that she would like to do something to help. Rosie teamed up with friends and fellow villagers in Polperro to raise funds for child victims of war, by holding a series of events in and around the village, mainly themed around a combined love of music.

Our first fundraiser, in 2016, managed to raise over £800.00 for Refugee Aid, a charity which provides direct aid to refugees in Europe. Refugee Aid is a Penzance-born organisation with a mission to take support to refugees where it is most needed, without any large organisational costs.  The donations they receive go to the families and children that are suffering in the wake of war, ecological disasters and political tyranny.

We are now pleased to be organising our second event, a 24 hour music marathon, this time raising funds for Human Care Syria. HCS are a charity dedicated to restoring stability to war torn Syria by providing immediate humanitarian aid and relief as well as being committed to the long term development of building a peaceful community. Funds raised from our event will be supporting three projects: Education, Physiotherapy and Psychological support.

You can find out more about both charities by visiting Refugee Aid and Human Care Syria

There is also more information about Polperro Refugee Aid on our Facebook and Just Giving pages.
We would really appreciate it if you could mention our event on your show.

If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
