Mobile Physio is older than the NHS!
When Lady Daphne Heald, who lived at Chilworth Manor, heard that there were no physiotherapy services for the rural villages of South West Surrey, in typical Lady Heald fashion, she gathered some like-minded friends and set about creating South West Surrey Mobile Physiotherapy Service “to meet the needs of those who would otherwise, for various reasons, be deprived of treatment”.
Much has changed since 1947 but we are delighted that the successors at Chilworth Manor, have maintained the link with Mobile Physio and continued to support our work. Although we currently receive a certain amount of funding to treat patients at Shere, Horsley and Send surgeries we also provide an important service beyond the NHS remit; treating the elderly and housebound in their own homes. To achieve this we rely heavily on donations and on fundraising activities such as this Garden Party at Chilworth Manor.

Tillingbourne Junior School
Tillingbourne Junior School serves our local community providing children with a wide range of experiences to enthuse, excite and encourage high quality learning. We currently have 364 children in school who have transferred from our local infant schools aged 7 to 11.
The school is set in the beautiful Surrey Hills and we are fortunate to not only be able to use the local environment but also our large grounds. We aspire to provide a curriculum that prepares children for life in a fast changing society as well as becoming well rounded members of the community. We strive to ensure that our children are Happy, Curious, Confident, Responsible, Aspirational and Resilient.
We believe that our children deserve the best but it can be a struggle to maintain and continue to develop opportunities. We have begun to replace our interactive whiteboards, which are somewhat outdated, but have only been able to replace 7 out of 14 boards so far due to lack of funding. Involvement with Picnics & Pimm’s will enable us to replace the remaining 7 boards with new interactive screens that enable high quality images in all classrooms. These will greatly enhance the children’s learning and we are grateful for this opportunity.

Oakleaf is a local mental health charity based in Guildford which has been serving the Surrey community for the last 21 years. It works to foster confidence and reduce social isolation by actively training, engaging and supporting individuals with mental ill-health to empower them to participate as active members of society.
With 1 in 4 people in the UK suffer from a mental illness every single year, its services have never been more vital.
Oakleaf delivers vocational courses in upholstery, horticulture and IT, to enable its clients to gain up-to-date qualifications and practical experience with the goal of returning to work. The charity offers a range of Social Inclusion Activities that cater towards building confidence, physical health and wellbeing. Alongside a counselling service and job seeking support, these activities have increased Oakleaf’s outreach to 700 members of the local community in 2018.
The funds raised from the Chilworth Manor Picnics & Pimm’s event will be supporting around 100 Oakleaf clients through their Unit 1 IT Qualification. This training is life changing - empowering individuals to secure the skills and confidence they will need to return to employment.
