Some kind of heading

The weather today is about as windy as I have ever seen it in London. On the radio they sais it might be gusting at 60mph! Certainly felt that strong when out walking the dog.

Hope that the rain holds off as we are having a birthday picnic tomorrow. Whole family – social bubble (I think).

The New RISE Reablement Centre

Regenerate-RISE is fundraising to build a 10 bed unit to enable older people to rehabilitate after staying in hospital, before being able to return home. We are planning to build this above the Platt Christian Centre in Putney and it will be a modern intermediate care centre dedicated to supporting older people to be able to live in the community. Each room will have an en suite bathroom, TV, telephone and computer access with skype for those who have relatives abroad or the other end of the country and each in-patient will be allocated a volunteer/friend who will take them out and also continue to visit them when they return home. The Centre will be staffed with professional people all who will assist older people to be able to live back in the community.  We have planning permission and our time line is as follows:

Planning Permission granted in June 2017
Fundraising the remaining £1,243,357 By February 2020
Start Construction – Stage 1 March/April 2020
Fundraise for internal costs April 2020 – January 2021
Start Internal Fixtures, Fittings and Decor February 2021


If you would like to be a history-maker and revolutionise the care of older people, please help us to build this Centre by giving us a donation to make the vision become a reality. Cheques made payable to Regenerate-RISE or through Just Giving with reference RRC.  Three of our clients went to a building site to have their photos taken and are joining us with this campaign to raise the remainder of the funds.    Together we can build the future for older people in our communities.If you would like to organise a fundraising event, please contact us and we will support you.  We are really looking forward to being at the forefront of care for the elderly in the future and believe that if the Reablement Centre is a success, it could be the start of many being built across the UK.

On Monday, 8 April we held our first PR event and 55 companies, organisations and individuals attended.  Please see our new DVD on the front of our website 

We are looking forward to the year ahead – if anyone would like to sponsor Julia or Martin for their sky dive on Saturday, 1 June, please email  We will also be organising a Quiz Night in June and if you would like to enter a team, please let us know.

Fundraising for the Reablement Centre

Martin and Julia raised an amazing £4,173.78 following their skydive in early June.  It was a great day out and a few of us witnessed their “jump” from a plane and admired their bravery.  Not something that everyone would do!!  Well done and thank you so much.




We held our cafe on Saturday, 20 July and our members enjoy having their nails done, a three course lunch, Bingo, a raffle and meeting with friends.  We raised £275 on the day and everyone had a great day.




We are very grateful to the Putney Society for a recent  donation of £500 towards the new Centre, to the Porters Trust for £5000 and greateful to individuals who have donated recently.




The Kenilworth Courtiers recently won our Quiz of the Year 2019 – congratulations.  Tied second were the Dover House Divas and Jackie’s giants – well done and thank you to everyone who attended.  We raised an amazing £600 in one evening, which was brilliant. The Dover House Divas, who came joint second also raised £1,224.10 at their Summer Concert – thank you so much.


If you would like to organise a fundraising event to raise money for the new Centre, please contact us.

The Challenge of the Coronavirus Crisis

Regenerate-RISE is very grateful to the 201 volunteers that have offered their services over the last 10 weeks and we want to say a big “thank you” to all those who have been available to deliver Supply Bags, Lunches and Expressions of Kindness as well as contact by telephone, do shopping, collect prescriptions and generally care about the welfare of older people across the borough. It has been a pleasure and a privilege for our staff to work alongside so many people willing to give up their time to serve the community. We are also grateful to Waitrose, to Sainsburys, to AFC Wimbledon, to Hillsong, to Wandsworth Council and to all the individuals who have provided food donations or monetary gifts to enable us to provide the services.

Following some very uncertain times with the renting of the Platt Christian Centre in Putney, the Trustees have put in an offer to purchase the building in order that the services that we provide for older people will continue for years to come. The world is a different place now to what it was 6 months ago and the Coronavirus has forced everyone to go into isolation and whilst supporting so many at home – we are now looking at what our service will look like when they can return to our Centres. We are still planning to build our 10 bed Reablement Unit, although the purchase of the Platt Centre was not in the plan, but we are moving forward with the same enthusiasm and will look forward with hope and a determination to see it come to fruition.

If you would like to support Regenerate-RISE to continue work from the Platt Christian Centre in Felsham Road, please email us and if you would like to do a fundraising event to raise funds for us to continue our work from the Platt Centre, please let us know – we would love to hear from you.

Decades before Central Park was even a concept, Seneca Village began to grow into a tight-knit settlement of African-American and Irish landowners. Centered near the current west side of Central Park at 85th Street, Seneca Village was an example of a self-sufficient, middle-class minority community that happened to stand in the way of city planners and the wealthiest New York families.

Each room will have an en suite bathroom, TV, telephone and computer access with skype for those who have relatives abroad or the other end of the country and each in-patient will be allocated a volunteer/friend who will take them out and also continue to visit them when they return home. The Centre will be staffed with professional people all who will assist older people to be able to live back in the community.

Speculation surrounds the origins of the name with some citing Senegal as being the place where many Africans came from at the time. The small town was also commonly referred to as Yorkville but was predominantly known as Seneca Village.
