Say it with flowers for Turn2us

Next time you send flowers, whether it's to say 'I love you' or 'Thank you', please order online at Arena Flowers. You'll be sending fabulous flowers (or gifts like chocolates and champagne) and also helping people in poverty because Arena Flowers will donate 25% of your order value to Turn2us at no extra cost to you. It's just one of several easy ways you can help Turn2us simply by shopping a little differently.

Tax credit debate will shape Osborne’s Autumn Statement

Adam Lake, Head of Communications at Turn2us highlights how this week's debate on reductions in tax credit is a chance to soften the blow on the poorest in society. His article was published by Politix Home, read it here.

A legacy of good

Legacies are extremely valuable to Turn2us. If you are making or updating your will, or perhaps helping someone to do this, you may be interested to see our new legacy leaflet.

If you would like a copy, or if you know of a local solicitor who you could ask to display some, please contact Micky


Lunch & Shopping at Chippenham Park

Our Cambridgeshire Committee recently held their annual Autumn Lunch and Shopping event in Chippenham Park's stunning lakeside surroundings. Visitors
enjoyed early Christmas shopping together with an incredible lunch. Last
year's event raised nearly £10,000 to help people in need in the county.

Could you organise an event for us, or maybe suggest Turn2us to benefit from an established local event? Email Claire to discuss how we can work together to make it happen, or call her on 0131 243 2766.

Tennants of Leyburn Private View

Cumbria and Yorkshire supporters recently organised a private view ahead of Tennants’ Summer Fine Art Sale. On the night Turn2us ran a raffle, addressed an audience of several hundred and raised over £3,500.  Huge thanks to Rodney and Ali Tennant and everyone involved.  

Does your company or club have a Charity of the Year or charity support scheme? Could you suggest you support Turn2us? Contact Micky for more information or to discuss how we can help you put Turn2us forward.

Thank you Garfield Weston!

We're delighted that our work collaborating with other charities – training their staff and volunteers to use Turn2us’ website tools and information to help the people in need they support - has been recognised by the Garfield Weston Foundation with a wonderful further award of £20,000.

London Marathon Sunday 24 April 2016

This is our biggest sports fundraiser and places are much sought-after. We have a limited number of guaranteed charity entries, so if you know anyone who really wants to run and who could raise lots of money for Turn2us, please ask them to contact Micky for details.

Upcoming Events

No Cold Homes 

Winter cold worries and frightens people in financial difficulty and 30,000 additional people – 28,000 of them aged over 65 - die in the Winter months each year, often from existing health conditions worsened by the cold. 

We’re fighting Winter cold. Look out for our No Cold Homes campaign next month – and please make sure your family and friends keep warm this winter.
