On Thursday 8 November 2018 we
launched as a Charity.
On Global Community Engagement day 2020 Tuesday January 28th, Driven Forward Charity took our lovely, regular group of elderly on their shopping trip to Asda. They all get picked up from their doorsteps from 2 locations in Windsor and they get to have a good catch up on the bus, do their shopping together and then we all sit down together for a coffee in McDonald's. Sometimes we will have a"sing song" on the way.
Today i'm back to driving the bus and "grabbing the bull by the horns" as it's my first time back driving the bus , since the RTC in October but I have two volunteers on board to assist and I will have some music too👍. Watch out for "Lumi" the blue bus as the driver is back in the driving seat.
On National Hugging Day, 21 January 2020 Driven Forward volunteers were at the bottom of Peascod Street in Windsor giving out lots of FREE HUGS
just what the Dr's ordered "Free Hugs" and we were giving out leaflets to raise money for Driven Forward Charity . £24 of donations received over the 2 hours will go towards the launch of the Community Hub that's coming soon in Windsor
Driven Forward recently had a stall at Cookham fete and were really pleased to be invited as one of the charities benefiting from the funds raised on the day
Driven Forward has achieved the free Quality Mark by having assessed every aspect of their activities to demonstrate their commitment to excellence. As announced on Twitter on 17th July 2019.

Driven Forward takes a group of guests from The Windsor
homeless project to Jealotts Hill community landshare
allotment. This is a weekly trip taking place every
Thursday where the homeless project have been allocated
their own allotment space. The trips have been taking
place since November and planting is going well of
strawberries, mange tout, cauliflower, lettuce and broad
beans and some of the produce will be donated to the Windsor Homeless project for use towards the fresh meals that are provided there.
The guests are really enjoying being taken there in “Lumi” and trips will also take place in the warmer weather on a Saturday .
