There is always more than one way of doing things – and often two heads are better than one!
SoLO is very fortunate in having some great partners to work with – there are some amazing people out there who are working with us and supporting what we do – together we can make such a difference to our communities! Just to highlight a little of what is happening in this area – but by no means exhaustive:
Screwfix Foundation came to visit us last week, following a successful application last year – liked what they saw – and offered us the chance to apply again – marvellous!
Knowle & Dorridge Lions value their charity partners to support them in their community endeavours so that they can do even more and make the funds go further. Following the very successful Festive Walk back in December, we are now heading for the 36th Knowle Fun Run on 18th May when so many wonderful people will come together for the benefit of others – and SoLO is proud to be a part of it!
Equally the Dorridge Fun Run on 2nd June will be a shining example of a community coming together for an event that can be enjoyed by absolutely everyone. We are delighted to be supporting this once again – marshalling along the route, serving much-needed refreshment and giving our members and supporters a chance to be involved – what more could we want!
We are delighted to be associated with Solihull Moors who support so many of our members in their community activities and have named us as a charity partner with a view to even closer joint working to further support those disadvantaged in our community. We look forward to the continuation of a fruitful relationship as we strive to support our members and their families in the best way that we can – together!
It has been said that the more you put in, the more you get out – and that is certainly true of partnership working – long may it continue – for the benefit of all!
