Every 12 months we choose a local charity to support and this year we are supporting EDAS - Essential Drugs and Alcohol Services. Their name was put forward by our friends, Bournemouth Rotary Club, and we have spent some time getting to know them. Relying on funding and donations, EDAS support anyone with a substance misuse problem, their families and carers.
We are a community minded Club and our focus is on encouraging sport and a healthy lifestyle so it felt like a natural first step to invite the EDAS team and those they help down to Bournemouth Gardens to enjoy some tennis in green surroundings. Coach Catherine is teaching them a few racket skills during an initial six week course.
Aside from this activity, we will be raising money throughout the year for EDAS to aid the important service they deliver in our local community. If you wish to find out more or make a direct donataion to EDAS please click here.
