The Get Home Safe Valentines Ball 2018 was a great success! We raised just over £2000 which we are working to support the ambulance bus return to Taunton town centre and continue spreading our important message.
The band were amazing, the photo booth was very popular and everyone had a great night.
The new Get Home Safe team would like to thank Taunton Rugby Club for helping put on an amazing night. Thank you to all the companies for the kind donations for the raffle; the Lavender rooms, The Skewer House, Cloud 9, Hestercombe Gardens, West Somerset Railway, The Castle Hotel and Katie Loxton.
Back in November the team took to the road and went to the local colleges to give the Get Home Safe presentation and film to help spread our important message.
We hope to continue campaigning our messages to schools and colleges in 2018.
We are super excited to announce that we will be hosting a Valentines Ball on 10th February 2018.
This is something we have wanted to do for a long time and with a great team now on board we are really excited to be hosting this to raise money for the charity.
We would like to use the money raised from the event to help fund the return of the ambulance service that was stationed in Taunton Town centre on Saturday nights. We would also like to try and set up a service with the taxis, police and street pastures a code/card that can be used to get young vulnerable isolated adults home safely.
Please come along for a fun evening and support us!
The amazing Centrefolds will be performing live, as well as a photo booth, amazing raffle and more!
We have a huge event happening in 2018! Details to follow shortly but we are all very excited!
We have a great team on board this year to pull this event off and can’t wait to share with you all what it is!
Watch this space!
We have our first presentation to year 11 students happening next week!
We are looking forward to meeting the students and using our new and improved presentation to spread our important message!
We are very grateful to Geo who was good friends with Mike Perry who was a young man who was also tragically found deceased after a night out in Taunton. We appreciate your support that you have always shown for us and we thank you for your kind donation of the money raised from the memorial matches you have done for Mike the past few years. This is a very kind donation and we are so grateful for your support to help spread our important message to prevent this happening again.
On Thursday 17th August 2017 we are arranging a ‘open meeting’ for the public to come along and get involved in the charity and what we are doing! This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in getting involved with the charity to come along and meet the team and also for people to give their ideas for campaigning and fundraising to help us spread our important message!
We hope to see you there!
The Get Home Safe Memorial Match 2017 was a great success! The sun was shinning and the rain held off and we had a great day once again. Thank you for all the support and donations on the day which we raised £540 which will really help us spread our important message.
