The Duck Races 2016

Rowberry Morris Staines Office entered the ‘THE DUCKRACE’ on SUNDAY 26th JUNE.  Well done everyone and thanks to all those who took part. We look forward to next year’s event.

 


 

Women V Cancer Ride the Night is the biggest women only cycling event in the UK, and the thousands of women that take part are raising crucial funds for Ovarian Cancer Action as well as Breast Cancer Care and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust.  Now in its third year, the aim of Women V Cancer is to help raise funds for these three charities, raise awareness of the cancers and get more women cycling! 

On Saturday 28th May 2016 I am leaving Royal Windsor Race Course at 9pm, following a 100km route into central London past many famous landmarks including Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace and back to the Racecourse.  To make sure we can’t be missed, there is a lot of pink and plenty of fairy lights to be seen.

I’m out training nearly every day covering about 70km each week, building this up before the big ride. 

My mum died of cancer 16 years ago and since I have friends who have also been impacted by this disease and I’ve seen the impact it has on those who love and care for them.  This is my small way to give to all women that are battling cancer.

This year we are being joined by Rachel Riley and Susie Dent from Countdown.

Spring is a very special time at the hospices and children and young people have loved being able to spend more time in our beautiful gardens at Jacksplace. Recent fine weather has meant we've be able to enjoy walks in the local countryside and even take some of our arts and crafts activities outdoors.

 

Building work for the Caterpillar Appeal is coming along nicely, with walls being plastered and windows and doors now fitted in the new and improved bedrooms and communal spaces. A whopping £3.3 million has now been raised but we still need your help to reach our £4 million target. You can help us by making a donation or taking part in one of our Rainbow Runs. 

Save the date!
Saturday 12th September is the date for our hospice Summer Fete & Open Day. This is your unique chance to see our brand new Naomi House hospice and tour Jacksplace too.  
There we will be plenty of entertainment and games, stalls and a BBQ in the gardens.
We look forward to welcoming you.

This awareness raising week is dedicated to showcasing the wonderful work that children's hospices do across the UK. 
We need your help to share the story of our hospice to as many people as possible, enabling us to reach out to families who may not know that help is available.

More than 900 people are now signed up to our flagship annual event, but we can still accommodate plenty more!
This year, the marathon distance walk will begin at Salisbury Cathedral and end at Winchester Cathedral. If 26 miles is too far, try our 14 mile route starting at Broughton.

 

 


 

Charity Coffee Morning with Networking

“Deathtrap”  by Ira Levin

on

17th, 18th, 24th, 25th October

Venue: St. John’s Hall, West End Road, Mortimer

Doors open at 7.15pm.  Curtains open 7.45pm.

Ticket prices:  £9.00

Box Office is open NOW.

 

The play, "Deathtrap," is a five character, two act thriller so perfect in its construction that, as Sidney, the main protagonist, says, "A gifted director couldn't even hurt it." Using his penchant for plot, and out of his desperate desire to once again be the toast of Broadway, Sidney, along with Myra, his wife, cook up an almost unthinkable scheme: They'll lure the would-be playwright to the Bruhl home, kill him, and market the sure-fire script as Sidney's own. But shortly after Clifford arrives, it's clear that things are not what they seem! Indeed, even Helga Ten Dorp, a nosey psychic from next door, and Porter Milgram, Sidney's observant attorney, can only speculate where the line between truth and deception lies.

Ira Levin – Author

Levin's best-known play is Deathtrap, which holds the record as the longest-running comedy-thriller on Broadway and brought Levin his second Edgar Award.  In 1982, it was made into a film starring Christopher Reeve and Michael Caine.  Levin's first novel, A Kiss Before Dying, was well received, earning him the 1954 Edgar Award for Best First Novel. A Kiss Before Dying was turned into a film twice, first in 1956 and again in 1991. His best-known novel is Rosemary's Baby, a horror story of modern day Satanism and other occultisms, set in Manhattan's Upper West Side. In 1968, it was made into a film starring Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes. Ruth Gordon won an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her performance.  Other Levin novels that were made into films included The Boys from Brazil in 1978, and The Stepford Wives in 1975 and again in 2004

The show is being directed by Tom Shorrock.

Workplace Pensions and Employee Engagement

A breakfast seminar took place on Thursday 1 May 2014 at the Hilton Hotel, Drake Way, Reading.

The objective of the seminar was to familiarise you with the new Pensions Act, which provides that UK employers will have a legal duty to enrol most employees into a qualifying pension scheme and contribute towards their retirement.

We partnered with Beaufort Asset Management to bring you a three-dimensional view of the legislation and the steps you need to take to ensure your business is following the correct procedures. There was a light breakfast on arrival, followed by a concise presentation with the opportunity to put questions to the panel of experts. Further tea and coffee was available for those able to stay on after the seminar.
