UPDATE: High Sheriff’s Concert for Swindon Cares

ON Saturday 11th June Christ Church was packed as people enjoyed listening to “Ten in a Bar” & The Wiltshire Police Band at the High Sheriff’s Concert for Swindon Cares. The Concert was hosted by Swindon born explorer David Hempleman-Adams, & our guest presenter was Graham Rogers from BBC Wiltshire.

Thanks to huge support from those attending, those who gave donations or advertised in our programme we will have raised over £5,700 for our 2 Charities DASH & Hop Skip & Jump.


Swindon Cares Launch took place at The Tawny Owl.

James Arkell our Chairman was on sparkling form, David Hempleman-Adams, High Sheriff of Wiltshire joined us with Deputy Mayor Cllr Eric Shaw & representatives from our 2 Charities, DASH & Hop, Skip & Jump and many of our very lovely supporters.

Here’s to a very successful fundraising year in 2016
