The Club would like to announce that our adopted Charity for 2019 will be Home-Start, IOW...... Home-Start is a UK wide organisation but importantly all the funds raised on the Island stay on the Island, to fund crucial support for local families...... Home-Start IOW support Island families with children under 5yrs of age who are vulnerable or experiencing difficulties - or both!...... Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very challenging, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life. For some parents it’s a particular struggle as they are also coping with issues such as post-natal depression, their own illness, their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple births...... Home-Start provide volunteers to support the family in the home as well as providing supportive & non-judgmental play groups at several venues across the Island along with more targeted one to one support from specialist support workers...... Your generosity will be gratefully appreciated and all the money raised will be put to very good use, here on the Island...... Home-Start are a non-profit organisation operating at full stretch and they increasingly find it necessary to rely heavily on their own fundraising efforts...... The IOWMCC will be raising funds in various ways during 2019, with every single penny going directly to help fund Isle of Wight families.
