What’s On May 2019

Just as we thought it was safe to don our shorts and flowery shirts the weather has put us back into spring clothes, which is of course where we are in the calendar, however we can instead look forward to these forthcoming events we are bringing to you.

All of these events are, as always, being organised or paid for by supporters at no cost to The Rosemary Foundation and any support in turn that you can give will be greatly appreciated as it allows us to continue to do what we do.

The first of these events is the East Hampshire ‘Charity Walk for Peace’ which takes place on Saturday 4th May and if you would like to take part the organisers are encouraging people to register online to save delays on the day: https://charitywalkforpeace.org/charity-walk-for-peace-2019-petersfield/

Several people from The Rosemary Foundation are taking part in the walk, and will be on our stall beforehand, so if you would just like to sponsor one of our walkers you may do so either in the office next week or at the stall on the 4th.

Also on the 4th there is a Pop Up Lunch being held in the new Liss Pavilion, to raise funds for The Rosemary Foundation.

Later in the month, on the 18th, our friends at Clarity Care Consulting have organised a Charity Race Night to be held at East Meon Village Hall. Anyone is welcome to attend what should be an evening that has ‘fun’ at the heart of ‘fundraising’ and contact details are included in the following event flyer.

On the 24th (a Friday) we are attending the first East Hampshire Dementia Festival in the Festival Hall, Petersfield, where we will have an information stand.

Finally in May, the annual not-so-gentle South Downs Yomp where teams participating in support of The Rosemary Foundation have raised in excess of £20,000 over the past three years.

This year, amongst those taking part on our behalf is the Reverend Jane Ball, Area Dean and Vicar of East Meon. Many of you may know Jane as the officiating Vicar at our annual Lights of Remembrance Service that is held at the end of November at Langrish House. Jane is a great supporter of The Rosemary Foundation and the work we carry out in her parish – so much so that she is undertaking this challenge on our behalf. If you would like to help Jane achieve her target of £1,664 you may do so by sponsoring her or making a donation via her Justgiving page – https://www.justgiving.com/Jane-Ball9.


Being conscious of all this effort being put in by others to raise greatly needed funds for The Rosemary Foundation, we would like to give something back by providing a team of Support Marshals to help at the event.

Support Marshals are there to look after, guide, feed and encourage Yompers as they take on the course.

What are the Marshal’s key roles on the day?

They are a vital part of the event and Yompers could not complete the challenge without their help – it is a hugely important role and we want them to feel part of the event. Their tasks will be numerous and varied, depending on how long they can commit to help, where they live, their skills and their transport arrangements.

If you would like to know more about helping please contact Jeremy Mitchell at The Rosemary Foundation – jeremy@rfpetersfield.org or telephone 01730 266329

Finally, we would like to thank everyone who joined us at what turned out to be an awesome Easter Fayre at East Meon on Saturday 13 April. Here are a few photographs from the Fayre, taken this time by one of our volunteers, Pete Fisher:
