What Rosie's Helping Hands Achieved 2001 to 2017

The charity set up in memory of Rosie Ross aged 16 who was fatally stabbed in Centenary Square, Birmingham in 2001 helped to improve the care and quality of young lives within a 15 mile radius of Aldridge in the West Midlands. Money raised purchased items, or provided funding to good causes working with children and young people up to the age of 25 years.

From mother and baby groups to training organisations, the charity helped to enhance the services, provisions and facilities of local groups that would otherwise have found it difficult to buy such things as; sport and play equipment, hire of premises and services, computers, development funds for disabled young people and educational trips to under privileged children.

Rosie’s Charity Walk & Festival was the largest and most popular event we organised. Held annually since 2002 at Aldridge old Airport, it was a great family event held on a Sunday in July, with a different theme each year.  Supported by lots of young volunteers from local Scout groups  and Air Training Squadrons, the event was a great show of community spirit.

THE EVENT HAS ITS OWN MINI WEBSITE HERE
