Welcome to issue #105 of The Lantern - Summer edition!

As I write, we are experiencing record-breaking temperatures which are making
life difficult for us all. I want to thank our Farleigh staff and volunteers whose
tireless compassion, dedication and professionalism overcome all challenges and
make a huge difference to the lives of those relying on our care (pages 4 and 19).

In this edition, we spend a day with a Specialist Palliative Care Social Worker
(pages 12-13) and learn more about the benefits of our new six week Relax and
Breathe therapy course (pages 20-21).

As our 40th birthday celebrations continue, we hope our customers have enjoyed
our eye-catching shop window displays. Anyone looking for a bargain should also
visit our Maldon clearance warehouse which has now doubled in size (page 17).

Our popular Walk for Life returned in May (page 9). It was lovely to walk alongside our supporters enjoying the beautiful countryside and raising so much money to keep our fantastic services going!

We have more exciting fundraising events planned including our Race Night (page 5), Golf Day (page 23) and Cycle for Life (pages 6-7). I was delighted to meet the Mayor of Chelmsford in June who is holding an Autumn Quiz for Farleigh as one of his Charities of the Year (page 14).

Finally, you are invited to our 40th birthday Garden Fete at Farleigh on Saturday 17 September (page 15). Please join us for a family-friendly afternoon with lots to keep you entertained, as well as the official opening of our new summer house. We hope to see you there!

Thank you for your continued support, it is because you care, that we can.

Alison Stevens, Chief Executive
