Hello world! Our history!

Hi everyone and welcome to our new blog!

We plan to use this blog to share with you everything we get up to….our events and activities and possibly our random thoughts too!

We would love it if you would share the link and spread a little Shine…

Thank you!

In this post, we have added a lot of our historic events and activities so it is a bit of a long one!

Christmas Party 2011
Another great night out at the Orchid Hotel in Bournemouth, lovely dinner and then some cheesy disco dancing! perfect….
3rd Anniversary Party & Fundraiser
Friday 28th October 2011
Our Halloween themed party was a great success….Lots of effort went into some amazing costumes and a great time was had by everyone!

Summer Holiday 26th-29th August 2011
The summer camping trip with a twist was great fun with unexpectedly good weather! The twist is that we had a wonderful converted barn which meant that we had bad weather back up and that some of our members could sleep in a real bed!
The location was great, just on the clifftop at Swanage so great views and access to the beach and a swimming pool.
38 of our members and families came along for the team BBQ on the Saturday night and the rest of the weekend was a mixture of relaxation and fun, spending time together or off out with the family!
Ferndown Relay for Life 16th-17th July 2011
The Shine team did not let the weather stop them for this 24 hour relay event! We raised over £1000 for Cancer Research UK and had great fun doing it too!

Frans Fundraising party was a great success, raising over £500 for Shine – thanks Fran xx

Shine members and their partners or family members enjoyed a Christmas Dinner and Disco in early December, a secret santa present for everyone and a bit of cheesy disco dancing made for a great night!
