The Travelling Souk raises money for Home-Start North Dorset

On the 13th of October, a Trustee of Home-Start North Dorset opened the doors of her beautiful home to the Travelling Souk. 

Throughout the day, stallholders sold chic and unique gifts donating a proportion of their sales to Home-Start North Dorset.

This successful event raised in excess of £2750 for our recently launched scheme.  Further funds will be reclaimed by way of Gift Aid.  Not only was a generous sum of money made, but the name of Home-Start was advertised throughout North Dorset raising local awareness of our worthwhile organisation. 

A huge thank you from all of us at Home-Start North Dorset goes to our marvellous Trustee who braved the mayhem in her home, and to all the hardworking helpers who gave their time on the day.

Volunteers Wanted!

We are in the process of recruiting volunteers to join our team.

Friendliness and a caring attitude are essential as well as an understanding of the pressures of parenting.  We offer a thorough Preparation Course and ongoing support for all our volunteers throughout their contact with our families.  We cover the cost of travelling and sundry expenses.
