Thank you to MK Rock Choir!

On Saturday 22nd June the Milton Keynes Rock Choir entertained customers on a glorious sunny lunchtime during the Beer Festival hosted by Ye Olde Swan in Woughton-on-the-Green.

A huge thank you to these lovely people who did a bucket shake for us (courtesy of our very own Terry Calvert and raised a wonderful £165.46!


Earlier in the year we rescheduled this years AGM to Saturday 3rd October 2020 due to COVID-19.  The Management Committee have reviewed this again and it is with great regret that they have had to make the decision to cancel this year’s AGM due to the ongoing pandemic. The health and safety of all of our volunteers and service users is extremely important to us and we hope that you understand this decision.

Thank You MK Rock Choir

On Saturday 22nd June, MK Rock Choir entertained customers at the Beer Festival hosted by Ye Olde Swan in Woughton-on-the-Green. The glorious summer sunshine clearly put everyone in good spirits and their bucket shake for the Reader Service raised a magnificent £165.46!

Thank you so much to everyone involved, including our special representative, Terry Calvert.

It is always heart-warming to be supported by other local groups and we really are most grateful for this support from the Rock Choir.

Volunteer Support Meeting – Monday 24th June 2019

Thank you to all those volunteers who attended our meeting on a balmy Monday evening at the Oak Tree Centre in Shenley Brook End. It was a very pleasant gathering of like-minded folk giving us an opportunity to put more faces to names and make a sizeable dent in the outstanding paperwork required to keep everyone safe and legal! Refreshments comprised some lovely scones with the necessary jam and cream accompaniments (ahh, “But which way round?” I hear you ask. Well, we operate an inclusivity policy here at the Reader Service, so all versions were acceptable:-)). As always, many hands made light work so thank you to the ladies in the kitchen and at the door welcoming everyone and especially to Tracy for organising everything. We hope you all found it useful to meet up with other volunteers and share your experiences. We so appreciate all that you do and obviously could not operate without your generosity and kindness.
