“What do we live for if it is not to make life less difficult for each other”

George Eliot   

Events cont.

We would also love to hear from anyone who has a fund raising idea, or who would like to choose the Raj K Soni Legacy Fund as their ‘nominated’ charity. Getting some extra help or Corporate sponsorship would be amazing.

This is the new Raj K Soni Legacy Fund Logo

We think it captures the spirit of Raj perfectly as he never passed up the challenge of cycling up a ridiculously steep mountain! And he never gave up.

Maybe what the logo says is ‘life is a journey and there are times when it will feel like an uphill struggle, but if you persevere and aim for something, there will also be times when you can kick back and enjoy just freewheeling.

(Of course it may say cycling up a mountain is just plain hard!)

In December we were offered some help with our branding and marketing by a local company who wanted to give their expertise to a local charity as a Christmas gift, and we were the lucky ones to be chosen.

The logo is the first thing we created with them, next up will be a revamped website, and we would like to say a big thank you to

Events for 2015

Our flagship fund raising event at Portishead Open Air pool, The Longest Swim on the Longest Day (midsummer's day but counting back each year since 2013!) is on Friday 19th June

We want to make this year even bigger so

please sign up for a swim slot as soon as you can by emailing or

The swim slots are for half an hour throughout the day so sign up quickly to get the one you want! There is no minimum sponsorship to raise this year, just as much as you can. If you would like to get a team together to swim then we’re really happy for people to do this too. There will be a BBQ and bar after the event (as usual!) and music from local young people.

Everyone is welcome no matter how few or how many lengths you swim - its about coming together as friends and as a community to raise money that will help local young people. Please help us make this a great event ,because of course we want to raise money for the Legacy Fund, but this event has a special quality to it of bringing people together as a community, and you will feel part of that whether you know one other person there, or  twenty.

If you haven’t taken part before and would like to talk to us before you commit, then please feel free to contact us on 07796 953414


In September we are planning another Cricket Match event, so if you fancy getting your whites out and joining a team, please let us know, or if you could help with organising this event, please get in touch, as many hands make light work. Watch this space for the date.

Also in the planning is a cycling event, so again please let us know if you’re interested in taking part or helping to organise it.
