Macmillan White Christmas Dip – Christmas Day

 

Every year, lots of mildly crazy, wonderful human beings throw themselves into the sea for the sake of raising valuable funds for Macmillan Caring Locally.

Macmillan Caring Locally is a small Charity which was established in 1974 to build the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital, and to support it in partnership with the NHS. Although they share the Macmillan name they are not connected to the national Charity Macmillan Cancer Support. Donations that we receive are used to fund the care of our Patients at the Macmillan Unit, and those who are under our care living at home in our community.

Dorset Children’s Foundation

You might have heard us mention the Dorset Children’s Foundation – our charity partners – in the last few weeks since we started working with them. In a short space of time, we have grown very fond of them and we’re increasingly amazed by their energy, determination and what they have achieved in helping local families.

We went along to their Boscombe shop to chat with Patsy, Adrienne, Jayne, Kitty and her mum Lisa. We’ll let them do the talking, please take a moment to watch this short video. Big hugs x

Charity dinner at Urban Reef – 21st November

 

If you would like to help us raise funds for the DCF and enjoy a night out at Urban Reef, now is your chance. We are hosting a dinner on the 21st November and tickets are available now at £25 each with all profits going to the charity.

Chef Wayne is working on a special set menu and asking local suppliers to donate ingredients so we can give more money to the DCF and staff are volunteering to work for free. On the night there will be live music from Alex Deutsch, a raffle to win prizes and Mark will chat informally with Patsy about why she and Scott set up the charity, the families they have helped and plans for the future.

It promises to be an amazing night. Grab your tickets here.

Big Sea for Creative

Free shared working space for local freelancers

creative-spaceAs more people look for the work life balance, Urban Reef is offering free work space to freelancers and those working away from the office this winter.

The first and second floor are open to those wanting a creative space with sea views.

Mark Cribb – owner of Urban Reef said: “ We get people from as far a-field as London, setting up their laptop for the day – just so they have the view, good coffee and food and the creative vibe that oozes from the restaurant. The beach has to be the most inspiring place to be if you’re trying to get some work done which is why we are encouraging people to use the space this winter.”

The restaurant on one of Britain’s most famous beaches, has triple height glass frontage flooding the restaurant with natural sunlight– banishing those winter blues that can grab hold of some office workers.

Even the Urban Reef creative team base themselves in an adjacent 1960’s beach ‘pod’ which was regenerated and updated by the creative fashion designer and manufacturer – Wayne Hemingway – co-founder of Red or Dead.

Ask Mark: Why are you letting creative types use your space for free?
