Festive Coffee Morning


Chloe Allen organised a fantastic Festive Coffee morning in aid of The Lawrence Centre last Saturday.  Chloe made lots of lovely Christmas gifts and decorations as well as yummy cakes and mince pies.  It was very well attended and enjoyed by lots.  The Lawrence Centre really thanks Chloe and her family for their ongoing support of The Lawrence Centre. A superb £270 was raised.



One World Fair


The Lawrence Centre was one of many charities with a stand at the One World Fair in Wells Town Hall on Saturday 19th October. Pictured left is Claire Chettoe, one of the helpers at TLC  and Maggie Charlesworth who manages the charity. 

TLC is proud to play a major part in the City of WellsDementia Action Alliance. 



Gala Evening


A full house packed Screen 1 at Wells Cinema to see Judy on October 4 and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Over £800 was raised for TLC from ticket sales and a raffle where the main prize was a Queen Street Deli luxury hamper, kindly donated by Bowleys Garage, of  Westfield Trading Estate. 

TLC Trustee Richard Leworthy who organised the event was very pleased with the result. ‘We’d like to thank all those who came to this special screening and to Wells Cinema staff for being so accommodating - it was a great evening thoroughly enjoyed by  all’.



Wells Moat Boat Race

The Lawrence Centre would like to thank all those who bought raffle tickets from our stall at the Moat Boat Race on August 26th which raised an incredible £625 for the charity. Huge thanks to Probusiness for donating a wonderful Queen Street Deli hamper  as the first prize and Morrisons for the bottle of Prosecco and accompanying red, white and rose wines as the second. And a huge thank you to Wells Lions and Wells Air Cadets for putting on such a brilliant show!

Music Therapy

On Wednesday 24th July Gina Cleverly was entertaining our regular attendees with a session of Music Therapy - one of the many activities devised and put on to entertain and stimulate them.  The event was sponsored by the Wells Dementia Action Alliance for whom we send many thanks. 


Carrington's Baby Shower

The Carrington's baby shower was certainly full of twists and turns; with jealousy, rivalry and a scandalous affair. This was certainly a memorable event for all. With a missing guest being  discovered murdered in his garden and three key suspects identified it wasn't long before the murderer of 'Chestnut Cove' was revealed. Thanks to two local detectives and the help of the residents of 'Chestnut Cove'.

This fun event raised £220 for The Lawrence  Centre; a massive thank you to everyone for their donations and for bringing their designated characters to life to make this such an enjoyable evening. And a huge thanks to fifteen year old Chloe  Allen who staged the event for TLC and put on such a great show which was enjoyed by all.

Murder Mystery

Murder Mystery April 13

The Murder Mystery Afternoon Tea in the Town Hall was a great success and all appeared to enjoy the wonderful tea provided by the Cheese Yard Cafe. The Moonstone Threatre Company players  said after that they had never been asked so many questions. Of course the retired Police Officers in the audience took things very seriously and reputations were on the line!  Nobody, not even the Thin Blue Line, guessed the culprit but a good time was had  by all. The Lawrence Centre and St,John Ambulance were the beneficiaries. Our thanks to Madame Mayor Celia Wride who organised the event.


Wells City Band Concert

A great evening was had on Saturday March 2 when the Wells City Band gave a concert in the Town Hall, the proceeds from which went to the Mayor’s two charities for her year in office - The Lawrence Centre and St. John Ambulance.

The performance was a mix of traditional band music and some ‘modern’ classics which included Bohemian Rhapsody, Ticket to Ride, a further Beatles medley, Misty and Under the Boardwalk!
