Volunteers needed!

AJC have offered to support a local charity called Sebastian's Trust.

Sebastian's Trust would like to build two new potting shed's at their Crowthorne and Basingstoke centre's, and we have offered to build the shed base and potting shed's for them.

The photo above shows the 'before' photo of one piece of land which we will be building on.

If you have some time to spare and would like to help support this amazing charity, please call Stewart or Louise in the AJC office on tel: 01252 845467.

A little bit about Sebastian's Trust...

Sebastian’s Action Trust has created the UK's only purpose-built facility that offers respite holidays to very sick children and their families, enabling precious time to be spent together. Their house, called The Bluebells, has been built in the pretty Hampshire village of North Waltham. It opened in July 2011.  Nothing like this previously existed in the UK, making The Bluebells the first of its kind and Sebastian's vision all the more exceptional.

They also give emotional, social and practical support in many different forms, through an outreach service to families of children battling with life-limiting illnesses and provide meaningful assistance at critical times to those exhausted by the stresses of hospital life and their child’s gruelling treatment.

The Trust does not have a restrictive geographical catchment area and already supports families in the South East, principally from Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire; however, we are happy to welcome families from outside these areas for respite breaks at The Bluebells.

At Sebastian's Action Trust, they care about making life a little easier for these children and young people. With our help they can continue to give support where and when it is needed.
