Kings and Queens 2020

We are not able to organise our usual Kings and Queens in the marquee on the Green in Danebury Avenue this year, but we have applied for funding to do a “mobile Kings and Queens. If we are able to go ahead, we will be hiring three open back lorries that will tour the Alton Estate with entertainers on board and our invited guests will sit on their doorsteps to enjoy the music, a free meal and our usual gift including a red rose.  We are looking forward to a day of happiness in the midst of a difficult few months.

Welcome to Regenerate-RISE

The Challenge of the Coronavirus Crisis

Regenerate-RISE is very grateful to the 215 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, shop, 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, FareShare and Wandsworth Council and all the individuals who have provided food donations or monetary gifts to enable us to provide the services. We have now given 10,938 individual support services to 367 older people across Wandsworth and so many have said that it truly has been a lifeline.

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.
