Welcome to our Summer 2019 newsletter.

We have had a busy few months in the build up to our 125th Anniversary celebration, launching our new CapeAbility fundraising campaign which looks to a bright future, alongside reminiscing over Welcare's colourful history.

We are looking forward to seeing you all at our Service of Thanksgiving at 11am on Saturday 15th June, to celebrate 125 years of Welcare. Please do encourage your friends, colleagues and family to join us at Southwark Cathedral so that they too can be inspired.  The service will include many wonderful contributions from young people including traditional choral music, steel pans and a vibrant interpretive dance.

I also hope you will join us after the Service for refreshments and the opportunity to collect a copy of our new brochure featuring stories based on real life experiences of our staff, volunteers and the families they help.  This narrative has been complied by Jo Josh, a volunteer from East Surrey who has vividly described how the charity has developed to meet the changing needs of society. I am indebted to Jo for her tenacity, creativity and sense of humour in creating a document we hope will pay tribute to the wonderful work of the charity over 125 years.  

I am also delighted to report that we have renewed our Investing in Volunteers accreditation until 2022 which is the UK quality standard for volunteer management and support.  I would like to  take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all our volunteers past and present for everything you can contribute to the life of the charity and the children and families we support.  Your time, ideas and commitment are all appreciated.  

For those of you who requested a printable newsletter, either to make it easier for you to read or to print and display on notice boards, we listened! You can download a printable version here

Thank you, as ever, for your ongoing support,


Anna Khan, Welcare CEO
