Help the Bumblesumas spread love on the Island

2 min read

As a result of the kindness and generosity of a number of Islanders, the Bumblesuma Club, which exists to do kind acts for others, has approximately £3,000 available to provide help for those in need through no fault of their own, whether it be due to age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage.

They are currently looking for a number of projects that they can complete in time for Christmas.

The club has helped Kai, who is totally disabled. His mother had difficulty getting him into his grandmother’s house to visit. The club purchased and fitted a fold-up ramp.

A tablet was purchased for Dean, who has been wheelchair-bound all his life and struggled with his main computer system. He is now able to play games and link up with others.

In another example, Lisa, Ann, and Steve, who each struggle with various medical conditions, had lost control of their garden, which had become overgrown and unkempt. The club recruited the help of

Reynolds and Read and a local gardener to clear out and tidy up the area so that they can enjoy it once again.

Paul Martin, founder of the club, said: “Sometimes relatively small changes can make a world of difference to people who just need a helping hand. If you know anyone who would have a much better Christmas with our help, then please get in touch as soon as possible. You can call 559370 or 07917 685682 or email paul@bumblesumaisland.co.uk.
