Soundbytes Choir

We are very proud that a local choir, Soundbytes are helping to fundraise for us with their beautiful online video performances. Last year we were due to attend their Summer concert to help with our fundraising, but of course this had to be cancelled.


Hopefully it won’t be too much longer before they can return to live concerts but in the meantime please do watch these two performances which are just lovely.

On Friday evening we held our first ever virtual garden talk fundraiser. The talk was given by experienced gardener and local councillor Julie Morris who generously gave up her time to support Dyscover. Julie gave an interesting and informative talk about her top ten plants and then took questions in a Q&A giving lots of useful tips and ideas to the attendees. There was a prize draw and one lucky guest won a John Lewis voucher. It was a very enjoyable evening and raised £103. A huge thank you to Julie and all the people who attended.

Jo running 2nd Marathon!


Our amazing marathon runner Jo Curtis was going to run the London Marathon for us in 2019 but got injured, she was then going to do it last year but because of Covid, she had to do the Virtual marathon instead -running 26.2 miles on her own around the local area in atrocious weather. She is now finally going to get to run the real life London Marathon on 3rd October and any support that you can give her would be very much appreciated!
