Charity Volunteer Event – Ashtead

Posted 19th September 2021

On Friday evening our Volunteer Coordinator Liz attended a Charity Fair in Ashtead organised by the MP for Epsom and Ewell, Chris Grayling. He invited his constituents along to find out about local volunteering opportunities. The event was really well attended and Liz spoke to many potential volunteers who might be interested in volunteering with us in the future.

Okd Friends

Posted 2nd September 2021

A number of past and present Members and Volunteers met up for a coffee and chat at Chessington Garden Centre last week. Dyscover has always promoted long term support to people with aphasia and it is wonderful to see that friendships continue long after people have moved on from their regular groups at Dyscover.

Shooting

Posted 27th August 2021

After over 2 years Members were thrilled to finally return to Bookham Rifle Club and polish up their skills on the range.
“It’s fantastic to be back” and “I’ve missed this so much” were comments made. We are hoping to bring back shooting as a regular accessible sport in the coming months.

Barry and Sportability

Posted 27th August 2021

Barry took advantage of Sportability this August and went micro-light flying. He said “This is the second time I’ve done it, the first time it was quite scary but this time it was far more relaxing and enjoyable”. In the past he has also been able to try gliding, blow carting, skydiving and four wheel driving. Because Sportability is a charity everything is free.
