“European Section of the Supporters Club”     Bletchingley Skills Centre


Quelle surprise!

We received a very unusual e-mail recently from a good friend, who lives in France, called Annie Winch. Annie is the daughter of Maggie who is our craft tutor. She held a coffee morning with her friends, on 5th October 2017, to raise money for charity. They also collected bras to send to a special charity in Africa – which accounts for the outfits worn by the ladies in the photograph!

Annie was very pleased to tell us that that the morning was very successful and the photograph shows only half of the ladies who attended. It was decided, amongst the ladies, that a donation would be given to The Centre from the mornings proceeds. Annie has now transferred £250.00 to our account.

A very big “Merci” to Annie and all of her ladies who we have given the honorary title of The European Section of the Supporters Club.


Bletchingley Skills Centre is a charity founded in 1989 with the goal of providing adult education classes for disabled people. The Centre originally provided training courses, support and information to physically impaired people. With the loss of our Surrey County Council grant earlier this year, we have now become a community learning facility for disabled and non disabled adults. Courses offered include numeracy, literacy, cookery, crafts and chair yoga. We also offer computer and Ipad classes for students at all levels and we have specialist software designed for the visually impaired. The courses help students to become more independent and gain in self confidence. The skills they learn may also lead on to employment, whether paid or voluntary. We rely on the help of volunteers to run some of the courses and are always looking for new recruits. Visitors are welcome to call in during term time at the Centre in Stychens Lane, Bletchingley, Surrey, RH1 4LL or contact the Centre by phone - 01883 743772 or email - for further information or to find out more about volunteering opportunities.
