Monday 13th July - Rosemary Did It!
Huge congratulations to Rosemary! The training and preparation certainly paid off! Supported by her family, members of HSB and Ted the bear, Rosemary confidently swam her mile and raised money for HeadwaySouthBucks. 'It was a great occasion' said her husband David, 'and we certainly blew our fundraising target out of the water'.
'We are overwhelmed by Rosemary's swimming efforts and very touched by her determination to support HSB in this way' said Jenny Sexton, Services Manager.

Visit to Woburn Safari Park - June 17th 2015
On 17th June we visited Woburn Safari Park. The weather was glorious and we had wonderful views of the lions, elephants, tigers, monkeys, giraffes, rhinos, and deers on the Road Safari. After lunch, we went on a Foot Safari and got close up to the penguins, parrots, sea lions, giant tortoises and other animals. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day.
