The chosen charity for November 2014 is The Woodhouse Centre in Oxted
The local charity that supports local people
The Woodhouse Centre is a cheerful and busy 'workshop' for retired and disabled people living in Oxted and surrounding areas.
Most people come for companionship and to share the spirit of a cheerful, busy environment. There are about equal numbers of men and women and the age range is literally 20 to 90. Most of the workers are collected from their homes by a dedicated team of volunteer drivers.
A list of our most common activities:
- Seagrassing of chairs and stools
