rise_front Regenerate-RISE (Reaching the ISolated Elderly) has a mission to eradicate isolation amongst older people across the UK. In this season of the Coronavirus, we will look for new opportunities to reach out to the local community with a programme of care and support.
  RISE SW11 works in partnership with St Michael’s C of E Church and has a new Dementia-friendly minibus that transports our clients regularly to the Centre.  The majority of our clients need transport and Dial-a-Ride provide a great service collecting people from across the borough of Wandsworth.
  RISE Nottingham
RISE Nottingham began in April 2012 and is now based at Clifton Methodist Church.  Our staff are currently furloughed due to the Coronavirus and everything is on hold for the time being.  The Church is being renovated and we look forward to seeing the new building.

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.

Mo SmithBy making the editor narrower and closer to the published page, hopefully this will allow the whole thing to run better. Here’s the example of a basic transition from the introduction to this article. The boxes below initially have an orange background, with the color set to change to green on :hover. For the first box no transition is specified, so the change occurs instantaneously. 005For the second box a transition with a duration of 5 seconds is specified, as such the change occurs smoothly over the given duration and automatically reverses when the mouse is moved off the element.

Now this is a separate paragraph but the image from above appears to be hanging over – this is just an illusion and a quirk of how a WYSIWYG editor will typically operate. So, let’s see how that works before trying to upload an audio file.

Bingo is still an activity that our clients enjoy and we enjoy a game on a Wednesday afternoon as well as at our Cafe @ Platt which is normally the third Saturday in the month.  The next Cafe is on Saturday, 15 February when we will be celebrating Valentine’s Day.  We always provide a hot lunch with Soup as a starter, sometimes have volunteers pampering our clients with nail painting and hand massages.  We always hold a raffle and are raising funds for our new Reablement Centre.

We are looking forward to beginning our New Build this Summer and will be providing a 10 bed Unit for older people on discharge from hospital.  Our services will continue as normal but in a different venue and we will be announcing that soon.  We look forward to being able to provide services for thousands of new people in the future – albeit on a short term basis, we look forward to impacting the lives of many older people across Wandsworth in the future.

We had a great Christmas Party on 21 December with Hillsong volunteers, a flautist, the Wimbledon Brass Band and a game of Bingo.  All the members received a gift for Christmas and we enjoyed a lovely roast lamb lunch.  This was our Christmas Cafe and we raised £275 for the new Reablement Centre.  Thank you to all those who made it possible – those who donated the gifts and those who attended to help.
