Discover the Impact of the Mayor’s Chosen Charities in Our Community

Let’s catch up with the Mayor’s chosen charities for this year and see the incredible work they’ve been doing in our community.

First up, Stepping Stones is bustling with activity as they prepare to bid farewell to children embarking on new adventures and welcome new faces in September. Recently, both children and staff participated in a sponsored sensory scramble, an event filled with laughter and exploration. The anticipation is building for their upcoming charity cricket match in August, and they are currently in need of bottles and bags for their tombola. Proving their dedication to a welcoming environment, their working group recently spent a weekend sprucing up the garden and giving the fence a fresh coat of paint. For those interested in joining their team, Stepping Stones is hiring. More details can be found on their website.

Meanwhile, Trowbridge Future continues to make significant strides in the community. They have proudly opened two new sites within Trowbridge, expanding their reach and impact. Their walking group remains a popular, informal way to socialise and exercise, perfect for the pleasant weather—although it’s worth noting that the walks are weather-dependent. The craft café has maintained its popularity, offering a space for individuals to either learn a new skill or work on personal projects while enjoying the company of others. Their support and signposting service continues to guide individuals facing challenges, while the Brews and Wet Veteran Support Group offers a supportive environment for veterans. Nariman’s cultural cookery sessions have been a hit, helping participants build kitchen confidence and explore delicious Egyptian cuisine. Last but certainly not least, the Kindness Café provides a warm and welcoming space for people to enjoy a cup of tea and some friendly conversation. Trowbridge Future is also on the lookout for volunteers and new hires, with more information available on their website.

Throughout the year, the Mayor will be raising funds for these incredible charities. If you’d like to contribute, online donations can be made via our fundraising page.  Every contribution helps these organisations continue their invaluable work in our community.
