Garden Party Volunteers Needed

Garden Party Volunteers Needed

YogaMobility needs volunteers to help out on the weekend of 23rd and 24th July 2011.

On Saturday 23rd July, we will have a cake stall at the Roath Park Open day, so we are looking for volunteers who can bake cakes as well as those who are able to lend a hand on the stall.

On Sunday 24th July we will be having the annual YogaMobility Garden Party at Bridge Cottage, Llanishen.  We will be needing volunteers to help set up on Saturday 23rd, to help out on the day, and also to help pack up at the end.

So whether you have an hour or a whole day to spare, please get in touch if you can help out (please ring Mary or Jason on 02920 482673).

Funky Love Curry Night

Jason Riseborough will be celebrating his birthday on 22nd May 2011 with a Funky Love Curry evening at Rhiwbina Recreation Club (next to the school).

The Funky Love Posse will be providing the entertainment for the evening.  So put on your dancing shoes and prepare to party on down.

The event starts early (6.00pm to 10.00pm) so there are no excuses about having to be up for work the following day.

Tickets for the event are £8.00 – proceeds go to YogaMobility – and include your curry (provided you book in advance). (Tickets can be bought from either Mary or Jason – 02920 482673).


YogaMobility ‘Sponsored Hobble’

Twenty disabled and able bodied members of YogaMobility held the annual “sponsored hobble” (walk) around Roath Park Lake on bank holiday monday 2nd May 2011.

The walk took place in glorious sunshine but with a cool northeasterly breeze.  Participants took about an hour to walk around the lake – although Maxine did it in about 15 minutes courtesy of her electric wheelchair!

Early indications are that the event will raise around £250 toward the running costs of YogaMobility.
