The annual Shopmobility AGM will be held on Tuesday 28th July at 6.30pm in the Council Chamber at the old Wycombe District Council Offices. All are welcome but please book to come along.
Thank you to all 12 teams that took part in our annual Pancake Race in the Eden Shopping Centre on Shrove Tuesday 25th February. We were delighted to raise £190 from entrance fees and would like to say a very grateful thank you for the kind donations made by Intel and the High Wycombe Beekeepers. This brings the total raised to well over £300. After a bit of controversy, we are pleased to award the David Griffin trophy to the 2020 winners – Eden Security!
We will be open late until 7.15pm if you would like to borrow a wheelchair or scooter to watch the Christmas light switch on at 6.45pm or for a bit of late night shopping. Come and visit our “ChocFest” chocolate tombola stall that evening – we’ve got so much chocolate for you to try and win – 3 tickets for £1.
We were really grateful for the support we received for our Town Centre and Eden Centre Collections at the end of July. A large number of our customers and volunteers gave up some of their time to raise funds for our charity. Our town centre collection raised £142 and our Eden Centre collection raised £384 – every penny will help run our service – thank you!
Shopmobility hosted a fabulous party on 15th 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 £10 million pounds in the town.

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.
