Fundraising events by our supporters have included a sponsored swim at night at Hampton open-air pool, and a ‘grim challenge’ across 8 miles of mud and water. Some local secondary schools have also organized mufti-days and other events to support us.

has been fund-raising for Off The Record for the last couple of years, through a programme of special awareness-raising events beginning with its first anniversary celebrations in 2014 and it’s Christmas Fair in December. They have raised £1,000 to support the services we offer!
We have raised over £3,000 from our Quiz and Wine Tasting Evenings! Many thanks to all our supporters who entered their teams, to our trustees for all their hard work in organising the events, and to Doran Vineyards for ensuring the evenings were as enjoyable as they were successful.
The Walking Out of Darkness walk on 16th May was organised by CLASP. CLASP is a charity seeking to increase Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention, and to end the stigma around mental health. Over £700 was raised by our OTR team, including Chair Graeme Markwell and Trustee Patrick Kidner.
Our Tombola at Teddington Village Fair on 28th June was as popular as ever with over 110 prizes to be won. We ensured there were no tears by giving a consolation prize to young children. Quite a few visitors to our stall requested more information about our services and we were delighted to welcome Dr Tania Mathias MP, our newly elected Twickenham MP.

Off the Record Twickenham is running a Quiz and Wine Evening on Friday 15th May at St Mary’s Church Hall, Church St, Twickenham. This fun event will start at 7pm with a wine tasting of five wines from the award-winning Doran Vineyards followed by a Ploughman’s supper of cheese, pate, bread and fruit. During the evening there will be several rounds of a not too fiendish quiz as well as a raffle and a cash bar for those who want to continue to drink the wine after the wine-tasting session.
This is an opportunity for friends to come as a team of 6 (for £90) to win a prize and the prestige that goes along with it, including a group photo on our website. If you want to come as an individual or a couple you will be asked to join other likeminded people on a table.
Thank you to every one who supported our fundraising Carol Concert, and thank you to Surya’s ukulele group (pictured) who played at the Concert. We were also treated to some fabulous songs by the Teddington guide groups, and some great readings, songs and poems by other young people from the borough.
We raised a fantastic £1,100 thanks to your kind contributions!
Further information on Surya’s group can be found by contacting email@example.com or phoning Surya on 07770 993289.
