For those of you who purchased local tickets & vehicle passes through the Charlbury Community Centre please read on for important information on next steps.
Everyone will have the option to either be issued with a refund or hold their ticket for 2021.
In order to do this you will need to head to the Community Centre to fill out a form. This is the form you will need to fill out (you can print it off and fill out in advance if you prefer). Please bring it on Saturday mornings 9am-12.30pm only. You will need to bring:
· All of your physical tickets with “VOID” written across them and
· Verification of your bank details so the Community Centre can confirm the form is correct (either bank card displaying sort code & account number or bank statement)
The forms will be sent off in batches to Wilderness HQ. If you have opted for a refund this will be processed within 14 days of receiving it. If you have opted to hold on to your tickets for the following years your information and ticket details will be held securely and you will be emailed closer to the event to inform you on how to redeem your tickets for the following year.
Charlbury Community Centre is organising volunteers and staff to deliver items from local shops as needed. If you, or someone you know, is self-isolated and needs food or other items, please contact us on 01608 811878. (Back-up number if you can’t get through is 819253). Equally, anyone who would like to volunteer to help, please call the centre or email Daniela Jenkins at email@example.com.
We can keep a tab for people who need the service and settle later. Items will be left outside your door, together with a receipt, so there is no contact.
For more information please see our new page: self-isolation help This will evolve as we work out what is needed and what can be offered.
We rely on fundraising, grants and donations for about 20% of the running costs of the Community Centre. Regular donations are especially valuable, so we have set up a “Friends of Charlbury Community Centre” scheme. Regular donors have their names appear on the display screen in the lobby, so it is good for those who missed out on the “Buy a Brick” scheme, or for people who are generous enough to want to help on a regular basis. For more details or to join please download this form.
If you make purchases from Amazon (bearing in mind that buying local is better of course!), we’d be really grateful if you could do it through Amazon Smile. If you do so the Thomas Gifford Trust will receive 0.5% of the purchase value. You will need to select Thomas Gifford Trust when you choose the above link or click on this Amazon Smile logo. Thank you!
We are very grateful to Pareto, one of our neighbours at the Spendlove centre who are kindly sponsoring our Christmas tree this year. We always have a big one outside the front door and this year it's needed more than ever! Many thanks also to Halcyon Farm, who significantly subsidise the cost of the tree.
This year the Charlbury Community Centre has employed a team of young people, who have undertaken lots of different projects around the town, from building raised beds in people's gardens, to facilitating outdoor and indoor virtual coffee club get-togethers for seniors, and helping with activities for children. This would not have been possible without the financial support of WODC (Community Activities Grant), PF Charitable Trust and local donors. Thank you all very much!
The phone number is 01608 811878 and it is manned 9am-5pm seven days a week. You can ring us for practical help, shopping etc. We have a big team of volunteers who can help you.
