2020 Global Community Engagement Day

On Global Community Engagement day 2020 Tuesday January 28th, Driven Forward Charity took our lovely, regular group of elderly on their shopping trip to Asda. They all get picked up from their doorsteps from 2 locations in Windsor and they get to have a good catch up on the bus, do their shopping together and then we all sit down together for a coffee in McDonald's. Sometimes we will have a"sing song" on the way. Today i'm back to driving the bus and "grabbing the bull by the horns" as it's my first time back driving the bus , since the RTC in October but I have two volunteers on board to assist and I will have some music too👍. Watch out for "Lumi" the blue bus as the driver is back in the driving seat.

 

Group huggingOn National Hugging Day, 21 January 2020 Driven Forward volunteers were at the bottom of Peascod Street in Windsor giving out lots of FREE HUGS just what the Dr's ordered "Free Hugs" and we were giving out leaflets to raise money for Driven Forward Charity . £24 of donations received over the 2 hours will go towards the launch of the Community Hub that's coming soon in Windsor
