The Dash Charity
The Dash Charity is a local award winning charity that supports women, men and children affected by domestic abuse.
Last year Dash reached out to over 6500 people. They offer a refuge service, advocacy & outreach service, intensive children’s services in schools and one-to-one therapeutic support. They also run the Freedom Programme and Freedom Plus Programme, which are group led programmes for women which enable survivors to recognise the tactics used by abusers and move forward with their lives. Finally, they also provide specialist domestic abuse training for professionals and organisations.
At BHPT we are committed to helping make positive changes and have supported the Dash refuge house via their Amazon Wish list and hope to work together closer in the future.
If you or anybody you know are experiencing domestic abuse Dash can be contacted on their hotline 01753 549865 and please do check out their website for lots of reassuring information and support here. Remember, if you need help in an emergency, dial 999 for police support or 101 for non-emergency police support.

The Red Box Project
We have joined forces with The Red Box Project, who help supply a box full of sanitary products, new underwear etc to local schools. Currently we have one at Burnham Grammar School, Lynch Hill Shcool and at Padstones (supported living for young people). The products were donated by the members of Pop Goes the Choir and BHPT purchased the boxes and supplied stationery.
We have also supplied over 500 packs of Sanitary towels to Food Bank Sough & Foodshare Maidenhead in conjunction with the Ladies Inner wheel of Burnham who donated money to be used by the project. Part of the project also saw us donate products and literature to year 6 girls at Lent Rise School & St Peters School in 2018.
We welcome new packs of donated sanitary items in the office to go towards this fabulous, much needed project.
