To the staff at Bristol Charities,

One great big, whopping, humungous THANK YOU for helping and providing me with a mobility scooter. Jim from Pearce Bros has helped me from the start in downloading a form from Bristol Charities. I am now the happy user of an Invacare Comet 4 - wheel 8 m.p.h scooter. This has given me another lease of life. I am too chuffed for words!!

Hotwells and Redcliffe Community Development Project

Bristol Charities has set up a Community Development Project for Older People. The project is funded as part of a legacy from Lady Haberfield Almshouse Charity who have worked in the Hotwells and Redcliffe area over the past 40 years and are part of the Linkage network.

The aim of the project is to work with people 50+ in the Hotwells/Redcliffe area to facilitate inspiring social activities that enrich lives and reduce isolation/ loneliness through active participation. Bristol Charities has a long-standing history of supporting older people in Bristol through Community Based Projects and is also looking to work in partnership with other organisations in the area to offer a diverse range of activities and groups.
