A note from Rita

Dear Friends

I hope that since our get together in July you are all keeping well. 

I hope also that you enjoyed our Afternoon Cream Tea and the very enjoyable entertainment provided by The Young Once ukulele group.  We were lucky with the weather on the day and hopefully there will be more sunshine in the days ahead before

Autumn takes hold.

Thank you to all of you who bought a raffle ticket on the day as we managed to raise £338.  We have received a very grateful acknowledgement of receipt from London Ambulance. For our September Jolly we will be supporting Marie Curie who support people with terminal illness, and their families.

Our next Jolly is on Tuesday, 5th September.  Could I kindly ask that you arrive no sooner than 12.30 pm for a 1 pm lunch.  If you would like to join us then please let me know by Wednesday, 30th August at the very latest by phone, text or email.

If you haven’t already done so, please could you put the following Jollys in your diaries:


3rd October

7th November

5th December

Could I please ask that you continue to bring some change for entry and the raffle should you wish to buy a ticket (£1 for one or £4 for a strip of 5).  Also, to bring a cup if possible and maybe a cushion should you wish a little more comfort! 


Looking forward to seeing you all very soon.




Huge thanks to Pinner Rugby Football Club & Morrisons for your continued support!


We were delighted to receive a lovely gift voucher from The Steak Restaurant.

Thank you!



The heart of a home is the kitchen and that was exactly what inspired Rita O'Brien to extend the invitation to her local community, to come together in her pink kitchen in her Open Door gatherings. Not only do these gatherings bring people together, but through everybody's participation, money is raised for a chosen charity each month. Open Door is about giving people a place to meet new faces, share a laugh, all the while helping to bring awareness to some of the lesser known charities and raise much needed funds to support their continued work.

Making new Memories

One Jolly at a time!

Our Story So Far. . .

We're making a difference, together.

Friends of Open Door

Thank you to our local businesses that have supported Open Door so far...


Thank you for your message!
