A Lasting Legacy
NMVC Christmas Appeal
We are launching our Christmas appeal; with your help we will be able to extend our services that support our residents.
Christmas Appeal - we are seeking to raise £ 11,460 to support our community through the winter months.
What will this fund?
Befriending - we support isolated residents, by matching them with a trained volunteer and our " check in and chat " service. We currently receive no major funding for this service and have relied on using donations to support this service.
We are seeking funding to support the programme through the winter. For 3 months the service costs us £5,800
Transport service - we offer a weekly minibus to support the needs of our local community - this can also support wheelchair users; the trips allow access to a range of more affordable shops in local towns. We also use the minibus to collect our residents that want to come to your weekly lunch sessions.
Transport support is a lifeline for those that cannot drive or access public transport in a rural environment. For four months our service costs us £ 4,460 and we rely on donations to support this service, as the winter months approach this service is essential to support those that don't have access to a car or can use public transport.
We run both a Winter warm hub - so that anyone who is struggling with the cost of heating can use our spaces, and Acoustic soup days - providing warm and nutritious homemade soup and entertainment. We are seeking £1,200 towards the costs of these events.
In total for the Christmas Appeal - we are seeking to raise £ 11,460 to support our community through the winter months.
How can you help?
By giving a donation regularly you will be supporting the work of the Volunteer Centre for older people living in the local community. Money given is used to support the Volunteer Centre and the many services we offer. This donation could be a lasting memorial to a relative or friend.
Who knows if in the future a relative or friend may benefit from the services we offer? You may wish to leave a legacy in your Will in favour of the Volunteer Centre. By doing this, you will continue to support the Volunteer Centre in the coming years and such a kind gift will help to ensure we can continue to help people of New Mills and District.
Gift Aid it
By using Gift Aid, your kind donations can be worth even more. For every £1 you donate to the centre, we get an extra 28 pence from the Inland Revenue!
If you think you may be able to help and make a donation no matter how big or small we would be extremely grateful. Leaving a lasting legacy is not only a good deed but a special gift. By making a donation you know that in your heart and mind you are helping your friends, family and community now and in the future!
