RECYCLE your

CHRISTMAS MARY STEVENS HOSPICE

CHRISTMAS TREECYCLE 2019

TREE

Let us get rid of your real Christmas Tree to help support Hospice families!

Christmas trees. We love a real one, but getting rid of the thing can be a nightmare. Which is precisely why our Treecycle ensures you never have to again.

In exchange for a donation to our families, the Hospice elves will travel around the region on the 5th/6th January 2019 collecting your Christmas Trees and taking them to Hagley Christmas Trees to be recycled – we call it Treecycling.

Currently, this is available in postcodes from DY2, DY3, DY5, DY6, DY7, DY8 & DY9 but please do keep your eyes peeled as this area may be expanded if we can realistically meet the demand. All you have to do is ensure your tree is out on the night of Friday 4th January 2019, and a collection van will be with you at some point during the weekend – possibly even before you wake up on Saturday 5th! In 2017, you wonderful people raised more than £750 and booked more than 60 tree collections. In 2018, you wonderful people raised more than £3,500 and booked more than 500 tree collections! Which was utterly remarkable! So, as you can imagine, we can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store!

8

VOLUNTEERING

We’ll be honest in saying that with this event it’s a case of the more pairs of hands the better. It’s normally best for volunteers to work in twos because it is very hard work, so if you and a friend, family member or loved one fancy getting stuck in for the weekend, please email Ruth Longville ruth.longville@mshfundraising.co.uk to let her know you’d like to volunteer for Treecycle!

VANS

As well as pairs of hands, the more vans we’ve got out there collecting, the better! So if you have a van or suitable vehicle you’d be prepared to donate for the weekend then please do let us know by emailing laura@mshfundraising.co.uk – if you’d like to volunteer for the weekend in your own van then even better!

TO BOOK PLEASE VISIT

www.marystevenshospice.co.uk All we ask in return is a donation (per tree) to the families who rely on the care of the Mary Stevens Hospice.

Win a SkinBase Radio Frequency Body Treatment AT STUDIO 524 BEAUTY, BLISS & BEYOND SkinBase Radio Frequency is a revolutionary treatment that firms, tightens and lifts the skin, all without having to go under the knife.

adio Frequency is a non-invasive R treatment so it is ideal for those who

either don’t want, or do not believe they are old enough for surgical procedures. Favoured by celebrities such as Amanda Holden and Mel B, Radio Frequency is gaining lots of followers and could soon replace Botox™ as the wrinkle remover of choice. Unlike other ‘non-surgical facelift’ treatments on the market, Radio Frequency actually stimulates the skin’s own natural renewal of collagen, resulting in smoother, tighter and younger looking skin. And the best thing is – Radio Frequency delivers great, visible results from the very first treatment. The treatment is suitable for everybody, especially those looking to target fine lines and wrinkles or excess skin. Common radio frequency treatment areas include: • Knees • Around eyes • Décolleté • Bottom • Tummy • Face • Thighs • Hips • Jowls • Arms • Neck

Before you take money out of your pension – READ ON by JPA Financial Services Ltd Many retiring today can look forward to several decades in retirement, so taking the right decisions about your pension pot is important, as you will want your money to last at least as long as you do. orking out how much you will need

W to live on and getting a state pension

forecast will show you how much you need to take out of your pension pot to cover your living expenses. We can help you work out the best way to take your pension pot. The Financial Conduct Authority recently reported that a third of consumers taking money from their pension were keeping it as cash, and so could be losing out in terms of the income they are likely to have to live on in retirement.

It’s also important to remember that when you take money out of your pension, only 25% is tax-free. If you take out more than that, it’s taxable and you may find yourself paying tax at a higher rate.

The value of the investment can go down as well as up and you may not get back as much as you put in. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

We hold a weekly Open Surgery at our offices in High Street, Kingswinford every Saturday morning from 10.00am to 12 noon for a complimentary review of your pensions and investments.

Give your child the gift of learning this Christmas

AT YOUR LOCAL STUDY CENTRE by Instructor Emma Wilkinson Would your child benefit from extra support with maths and/or reading and writing? Is your child lacking in confidence in any of these areas and finds the new curriculum challenging and ‘too much too soon?’

t your local (Ofsted registered) A Kingswinford Study Centre, Kumon

offers individualised maths and English study programmes, which are tailored to all ages and abilities; including those home-schooled or children with a SEN. Centre Instructor (Emma Wilkinson) is a qualified teacher (QTLS) and early years specialist; including those children with SEN.

The Kumon programmes aim to help students study work above their school grade level. They have been helping children for 60 years in 50 countries and regions across the world. Kumon is the largest supplementary education provider in the UK and Ireland with 650 study centres supporting more than 74,000 students. At Kumon, our students always work at a level that is just right for them, allowing them to develop concentration and focus. Like school, we aim for each student to become a confident, independent child with a passion for learning. Emphasis is placed on developing strong reading comprehension and mental calculation skills, though the abilities developed add value to pupil’s right across the curriculum and beyond. Both programmes are individualised to each child’s current ability, ensuring they build on a solid foundation and experience success from their very first day.

22

Emma works very hard with her students and their families, to ensure all children are able to reach their full potential, in order to study above and beyond their school level. Emma is very passionate about the Kumon programmes and always looks forward to welcoming new families, to begin their Kumon journey.

Inspire your child with a gift that will inspire them all year round! The Kingswinford Study Centre is located in the ‘Bungalow’ at Crestwood School, Bromley Lane- with classes running every Tuesday and Thursday between 3.45pm6.30pm and Saturday 10.30am-1.00pm (30-40 mins per subject on a time-slot basis). To find out how Kumon study can help your child to shine, book a consultation with your local Instructor, Emma Wilkinson on 01384 908047 or email

WIN A FAMILY TICKET TO SEE

DOCTOR DOLITTLE You’ve never seen anything like it !

You’ve never seen anything like it! Doctor Dolittle returns to the stage in Leslie Bricusse’s acclaimed family musical at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from 29 Jan – 9 February. We have a FAMILY TICKET’for four people’ to give away for Wednesday 30 January. oin the eccentric Doctor, his human companions and his exotic menagerie of animal friends on an extraordinary adventure to find the Giant Pink Sea Snail, that holds the secret of life and making the world a happier place. With help from the Pushmi-Pullyu and his trusty sidekick Polynesia the Parrot, the larger-than-life Doctor Dolittle teaches us not only to talk to the animals but to listen to them as well!

Based on the popular 1967 film with Rex Harrison, this spectacular new stage show stars Mark Williams (Father Brown, The Fast Show, 101 Dalmatians, The Borrowers, Shakespeare in Love and seven of the Harry Potter film series) as Doctor Dolittle. Joining his exciting journey are the superb Adèle Anderson (Fascinating Aïda) as Lady Bellowes and the dangerous Poison Arrow, the hilarious Vicky Entwistle (Coronation Street, Ackley Bridge, Les Misérables) as his trusty side-kick Polynesia and with Brian Capron (Coronation Street, Grange Hill, Where The Heart Is) playing both the vivacious Albert Blossom and the mighty Straight Arrow. This exciting musical adventure is brought to you from the producers of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Addams Family and promises stunning visual puppetry, all your favourite songs and fun for all the family.
