Richmond May Ball 2018


Hopefully you have already saved the date of Friday 11th May for this year’s Richmond May Ball. Exciting next step; you can now book your ticket(s)!

In its 25th year, the Richmond May Ball has to date raised over £1 million for more than 15 local charities and we’re thrilled to have been chosen as one of this year’s local charity partners.  This prestigious ball has always been a memorable and ‘must attend’ event in the Richmond social calendar and promises to be the same this year. For an inside peak at the ball, take a look at last year’s video. Tempted? There are two ways you can book:

  1. Online by using this link
  2. Send an email to the ball committee

Join us for a wonderful evening knowing all money raised will make a difference to the lives of Home-Start families across Richmond, Kingston and Hounslow.

We very much look forward to sharing this wonderful occasion with you.

For any further information, please contact Claire Leonard at Home-Start Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow: email here or call 020 8487 8500.

Half Term Hygge for Home-Start

We’re so excited to share with you our new fun and easy social media campaign!

In time for next week, Half Term Hygge for Home-Start, is an activity that involves all of the family (or perhaps amongst the school holiday madness you’d welcome some alone time!).

So, what is hygge?
Hygge (pronounced hue-gae, we think!) is a Danish word used to acknowledge a feeling or a moment. It’s a celebration of mindfulness and togetherness!

Whether with family and friends or alone, at home or out, it’s all about being fully present in the everyday, igniting your senses and enjoying that moment e.g. making the morning coffee or breakfast, baking and craft time, reading a book, lighting a candle at dinner, or simply going for a walk.

How can I support the campaign and help raise awareness?

  1. Take a photo of your hygge moment (it doesn’t need to be picture perfect!).
  2. Share the photo on any of your social media accounts i.e. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.
  3. Use the hashtag #hyggeforHomeStartRKH and tag us in the photo.
  4. Tag a friend(s) and ask them to do the same.
  5. If you would like to, make a donation to us via Virgin Money Giving or Just Text Giving by texting HSRT17 to 70070.

The campaign starts this coming Monday (12 February) across our social media accounts, including our new Instagram account! Follow us on Instagram at homestart_rkh and like our Facebook page.

Thank you as always for your help and support. We can’t wait to see your photos…

Happy half term!
