Friends of Rushmere Community Resource Unit

Rushmere Community Resource Unit ( also known as Rushmere Hub ) provides a wide range of activities for the local community, primarily for adults with learning disabilities. Leading Lives manage the building and run most of the activities, the most significant being day services run from Monday to Friday. Ipswich Mencap holds their 2 Ms Club here on Tuesday evenings.

Three years ago the Friends of Rushmere CRU was set up as a charity to bring together members of the community who wish to support the Rushmere Hub. The Friends group consist of family carers, members of local organisations, other community members and members of the Leading Lives team.

We hold a number of social and fundraising events throughout the year – the latter has provide funds for improvements in the facilities at Rushmere Hub including major changes to the garden, IT equipment for the customers and T-shirts for the Optua Games. The social events have included the highly successful Art Show, Winter Fair, Hallowe’en and Valentine Discos.

The small group of Friends always welcome support from volunteers for events, running stalls or catering – and of course anyone who is able to hold their own fund-raising event in aid of our charity.
