It won’t come as any surprise to hear that our Christmas Fundraising Event this year is going to have to be a virtual one but there are real and generous prizes! See below. We’ll miss sharing a mince pie and mulled wine with you at the Christmas Fayre but you can still support our fundraising by buying lots and lots of raffle tickets and telling your friends and family where to buy theirs, on our Horsfall House Website. The draw will take place on the 18th of December.
Enormous thanks go to the local businesses who have provided such generous prizes for our raffle and a big thank you to you for supporting us.
Good luck with the raffle and stay well.

Horsfall House is owned, through a group of volunteer trustees, by the community of Minchinhampton and is proud to offer the same outstanding services to both Social Services and Private clients. The policy of the trustees is, as far as possible, to maintain an even split between these two groups. However Social Services only partially fund the costs and so there is a funding gap which is filled directly by Horsfall House. As well as funding this shortfall our free respite care is directly financed by Horsfall House. It is therefore vitally important to keep raising funds and we do this in a number of different ways:

It is with great sorrow that I report on the recent death of Muriel Gomm of Chapel lane, Minchinhampton.
Muriel was a trustee of MCE, Horsfall House from 2011 until 2017 where, as a member of the Fundraising group under the leadership of Jim Harris, she both conceived and launched our very successful Annual Walk through Gatcombe Woods and Avening Court.
Muriel was an enthusiastic Bridge player too and, as well as starting a Bridge Club in the Mortimer Rooms in Nailsworth, directed the Bridge evenings at Horsfall House.
Our deepest sympathy goes to her husband David, daughters Alison and Julia and their families.

Our Charity walk was a huge success this year and we managed to raise in the region of £11.000 including Gift Aid. Many thanks to all the walkers and to our sponsored walkers and hope to see you all again in May 2021.
IF YOU ARE A UK TAX PAYER YOU CAN: Use Gift Aid and you can make your donation worth more. For every pound you give to us, we get an extra 25 pence from the Inland Revenue. If you are a UK taxpayer and would like to Gift Aid your donations now and in the future you must pay enough income tax and/or capital gains tax each tax year to cover the amount of Gift Aid that all charities and community amateur sports clubs claim on donations in that tax year, and you are responsible for paying any difference. When Registering for the Charity Walk just say YES. Click on the Giftaid it logo to find out more about Gift Aid.
Open every Friday morning between 9:15 am and 11:45 am, please come along and support Horsfall House.

This is Bob a 14 year old Border-Yorkie who is raising money in the 2.6 Challenge to save our charities. He would normally be a regular visitor to ’Grandad Vic’ at Horsfall House.
Bob is well known in Nailsworth as the ‘dog in the sack’ as his arthritis limits him to a slow sniffing pace. But from the sack he can enjoy a panoramic view and appreciate the surprised smiles from passers by!
Bob’s challenge is on 26th April and each day of the following week: ‘Walk’ 2.6 miles in his sack, then eat 2.6 gravy bones whilst I attempt a 2.6 min Pilates Downward Dog!
PLEASE DONATE WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD TO SUPPORT
HORSFALL HOUSE, THANK YOU.

Annabelle would like to raise some money for the residents of Horsfall House, a care home for the elderly, to purchase new games and resources for them during this time.
