Our very own Maureen, from our South East team, took part in a 1.5km swim to raise money for two fantastic causes, Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie. After seeing a poster in a local sports centre she thought it would be a good idea to challenge herself, and so on Saturday 30th March 2019, at 16.00 and with timekeeper in place, she set off in her allotted lane on the swim.

After an impressive, 38 minutes and 41 seconds she had completed 60 lengths of the 25 metre pool and has raised an amazing £455 for brilliant causes. Thank you to everyone who donated and to Capstone for there contribution.

This week, Broden and Fiona from Capstone South East met with the team at Radio Essex to discuss fostering and the need for foster carers in the local area. There is a real demand for carers across the South East and in particular, in Essex. Fiona, our Recruitment Coordinator, did an interview about this on the show this week and you can listen to the full interview, here: https://bit.ly/2BN8BzT 

Broden and Fiona would like to thank the team at Radio Essex for welcoming them!

If you’re considering fostering and would like to know more about what’s involved, give us a call on 0800 012 4004 and speak to us today for more information.

We had a second Bowling event during this February half term, on Monday 18th February, where our children, young people, carers and staff all come together from our Stratford and East London offices for a fun day of bowling at the All Star Lanes in Westfield, Stratford. Using 4 lanes, with 25 of us participating there was a nice level of competition whilst at the same time everyone still had fun and helped each other to get the highest possible scores.

After bowling we all sat down for burgers and chips and the enjoyment could be seen on everyone’s faces. We had lots of lovely feedback from the children who said how much they enjoyed the day. Thank you to everyone who attended, we cant wait to see you at the next events.
