News From Home-Start Matters: April 2020

Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times. We are there for parents when they need us the most because childhood can’t wait.

Due to the outbreak of corona-virus, our planned Literary Lunch has been postponed. We also had runners due to take part in the London Marathon, however, this too has been postponed. We still encourage our supporters to donate, if at all possible.

We are looking for swimmers to join a team to take part in our Home-Start Aquathon to be held at 8pm on Sunday 17th May at Royston Leisure Centre. All you need to do is get some sponsorship and turn up on the night and have fun! It is not a race, you will swim with a team of 6 in relay for 55 minutes.

If you would like to take part, we have 4 swimmers for the team already and we would love to hear from you. 14 teams have signed up already!
