Thanks to those that have done the Ice Bucket Challenge and supported The Lounge. 

Homer Ice Bucket

We'd like to say thank you to those that have taken part in the (in)famous Ice Bucket Challenge, but opted to support a more local cause, that directly affects all our lives in one way or another.

If you want to support us in this way, or any by any other sponsored event, remember you can either donate directly, or set up a sponsorship page by clicking on the My Donate links on this site.

All money raised goes directly to Alvechurch Communities Together who manage The Lounge and associated projects.

ACT AGM Monday September 15th 2014

Lounge logoAlvechurch Communities Together (UK Reg. Charity No. 1154840) will be holding it's Annual General Meeting at The Lounge, Alvechurch. This is an open event and is you chance to find out more about ACT and The Lounge and some of the work it has done, as well as the work it intends to do. Everyone is welcome to attend and is carried out in an informal manner and you will have your chance to ask questions to many of the people involved in the charity.

Lounge LogoAlvechurch Communities Together Management Group is very aware that we do not use the word thank you enough to our volunteers. We are very grateful for the help that you give us and appreciate that the project would not be where it is without the support of all those that help at the Lounge on a voluntary basis As a volunteer I am sure it is sometimes difficult to get an overview of what is actually happening with the project and almost impossible to spend some quality time with othervolunteers and staff.

We should therefore like to invite you to The Lounge on Monday 14th July at 7.30pm to share in some light refreshments, hear an overview of the successes and challenges of the project and meet other volunteers and staff in a relaxed atmosphere. In the meantime Sally and Emily are planning to set up a display in the Library during Volunteers' Week (2nd -6th June) to highlight the good work that is done by our volunteers and to encourage and inspire new people to support us in this way. With this in mind we have attached a questionnaire that will help us to get a volunteers' perspective on working at the Lounge. Please can you return to us by the end of this  month? It is very important to us that you have your voice heard. Thank you once again for all your help and look forward to seeing you in July


The Lounge will be hosting a FREE lemonade factory where you can come along and make some real lemonade and even print your own labels. It will be running from 12pm to 4pm on Sunday 31st August. So feel free to drop in and make some tasty lemonade. Oh did we say it was free?

The live music event hosted by The Lounge was a fantastic result.

The night time live music event  raised in the region of £1500, after the costs of hosting were taken into account, which goes some way to running The Lounge and all the associated community projects. We would like to thank everyone who attended, took part in the raffle or in anyway helped out. A big thank you also goes out to Max Lyrical who provided the nights music entertainment, without whom, this would never of happened.
 On the night, along with the music (and dancing), there was a fantastic South American themed buffet, a ad-hoc win a bottle competition and the raffle.
Also we would like to thank the following companies for their kind donations for the raffle:
  • Alvechurch Boat Centre
  • Red Lion/Vintage Inns
  • The Weighbridge
  • Tudor Rose Fish Bar
  • The New Dilshad
  • Crows Butchers
  • The Co-op 

So once again thanks to everyone involved in this event and we look forward to your continuing support.
