Events and Ways of Helping Us

Walk this way!

WALK THE TEST WAY?  In October there’s a brilliant occasion when you can enjoy a (flat!) walk from 2 to 25 miles – your choice – along the lovely Test and its valley.  Raising funds for BASICS H as you go.  There are rest points, tea rooms and pubs along the way.


Amelia Price



In Portsmouth, also in October, there’s a Fun Run (only runners call it that!) of five miles but the major event is the Great South Ten Miler the next day .  If you’re interested, contact  or text 07703 131188- she’ll be booking places as soon as it opens.




BASICS at Fordingbridge Show



On the banks of the Avon, it’s full of stalls, competitions, displays – animal, vegetable and mineral – and is really family friendly.  BASICS Hampshirewill be there as it was last year complete with its own competitions, tasty things to eat and crafts to buy.  If you live in the Avon Valley and have things we could sell, email us!



1-3 August – Southsea. Always exciting!  Arena displays of the work of the emergency services and – as ever – a BASICS stall.
