We are busy stacking up this year’s effort in the Big Give, which every year engages charitable giving trusts and foundations who will MATCH pledged funds before the individual charity seeks donations in a single week in December each year.
Our campaign is entitled Refreshing Shrewsbury House.
“Shrewsbury House is undergoing a much needed refurbishment but beyond basic replacement and maintenance, we need to respond to the needs of our children partially highlighted by the Covid pandemic. There are over 50 children per after school club session where we provide a warm and welcoming environment, but this is not enough. We need to provide sensory space, a computer room and disabled access with specialist staff to deliver life coping skills for all our children and teenagers.”
The Big Give – So Far So Good – Now we need ALL of you
Thanks to our wonderful team of Pledgers we have secured our initial target of £10,000. At that point it became a question of would a charitable trust match it….. and the marvellous Four Acre trust have done just that. They too will give the club £10,000, with one proviso…. We must now MATCH the promised funds by raising our own £20,000 in just ONE week. That’s the deal. That week starts at midday on Monday 1st December and lasts until 12.00 noon on 8th December. Please press the Donate button and help now.
We need a huge number of us to show our support, give what we can and also spread the word and ask others to do the same. We have already made great progress in refurbishing our beloved building and it’s in great shape, but we do need to do more to equip us for the coming decades. In addition to that, your generosity will keep our superb part time staff team going.
Thank you. Thank you for your past support. Thank you again for supporting us now.
