Happy 25th Birthday Shopmobility!

Shopmobility hosted a fabulous party on 21st June to celebrate our 25th birthday with many of the people that have helped create the successful service we are today.

Chairman, Alan Switalski, gave the celebration speech, outlining the difference that Shopmobility has made in Wycombe over its 25 years: helping over 6500 people with customers spending over £10million pounds in the town.

We’ve demolished our 2018 £5,000 fundraising goal!

Thanks to everyone’s generosity in 2018 we have exceeded our fundraising goal of £5000 for the year – reaching an impressive £5968 by the end of December.

We are particularly grateful to those who bought tickets in our Christmas Raffle as this raised over £1,150, to those who bought our Christmas Cards raising £178 and to those who contributed to our bag packing collection at Waitrose 2 days before Christmas where £600 was raised. Thank you.

With rising costs and the uncertainty around Brexit this year we are raising our hopes for 2019 and would like to ask for your support to reach a fundraising goal of £6,000 this year. This will help keep our free service running for anyone who needs it into the years to come.

Thank you for your support.
