Dogs for the Disabled

As part of its on-going support of Oxfordshire charity Dogs for the Disabled, short-term lender PaydayUK is pledging to provide £1 for every new ‘like’ of its Facebook page until a £1,000 target is reached.

Dogs for the Disabled  trains assistance dogs for children and adults with physical disabilities and families of children with autism.

This promotion is the most recent example of PaydayUK’s support of Dogs for the Disabled after it sponsored a training puppy (Mickey the Labrador) back in May, and held a charity barbecue in June which raised over £1,500.

PaydayUK-sponsored Winterfest shows Christmas is just around the corner


A charity sponsored by PaydayUK just held its hugely popular winter festive fair.

The Haddenham Winterfest 2012 took place on Saturday, December 8, and once again featured a whole host of fantastic attractions and yuletide entertainment.

The Winterfest is run by the registered charity Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust which organises two festivals a year to raise money for good causes in the Buckinghamshire village and surrounding area.

So far the trust has raised more than £112,000 through sponsorship, donations and the hard work of a multitude of volunteers who help with setting up, serving and clearing up .

While the summer festival is very much a beer festival the winter equivalent, the Winterfest, is more of a fair with far more than beer and cider on offer.

Thame Hockey Club looking forward to new season


Thame Hockey Club has started its preparations for the 2012/2013 season under the watchful eye of a new expert head coach.

After a highly successful year which saw three of their four adult teams win their leagues Thame have hired level three coach Stuart Armstrong to help the club grow stronger and continue to flourish. PaydayUK is proud to sponsor Thame Hockey Club and is glad their continued support is enabling the young club to improve.

Last year the men’s first and second teams won their leagues while the ladies’ first team’s title winning year was rewarded with a double promotion. The ladies’ second team also had an excellent year as they recovered from a faltering start to finish strongly.

This season the men’s first team are set to contest Middlesex, Berks, Bucks & Oxon Division Three and the seconds will play in Division 9.
