Spring is here....?

Spring finally seems to have sprung - we had a gorgeous weekend down here in Christchurch, with bright sunshine all weekend.  Doesn't it make a difference?

Just a few bits of news this month!


100 Appeal

Some of you may remember the 100 Appeal from a few years ago, when Nichola was our Fundraising Manager - well, I decided to resurrect it!

The basic concept is simple.... if we can get 100 people committed to raising £100 over the Summer - that's £10,000 for the coffers - simples!  And of course, if it's more than £100, then we're even happier!
If you would like to give it a go, email me at the usual email address and I'll send you a Toolkit of lots of ideas and information to make your fundraising event go really well.  I want to keep a track of how people are doing, so once you've decided what to do, let me know!

Best of luck!!

PS - and if you're not a paying member of the organisation, why not join?  That's £25 towards the total....!!  http://cmt.org.uk/how-we-help/become-a-member/  
   Spring Prize Draw

We'll be drawing this at the end of the month, so there is still time to buy tickets!  We're just over £4,000 in income now!  Thank you so much.

prizes so far include:
first prize of £500
second prize of £200
£50 M & S voucher
A Bottle of champagne
A gift box of cosmetics and jewellery

if you can help with a prize, or think your employer might be prepared to donate something, let me know.  I wrote to every large supermarket/superstore in Christchurch recently and received ZERO response.... :(

Recent Survey

This is just one of the results from our recent membership survey.  I thought it was very interesting that Members value having our magazine by post most, followed by our support services via email/telephone or letter next. 

If you haven't taken part yet - you can do it via the web, if its easier:
