Sheffield University ADHD Project

Sheffield University are looking for as many families as possible whose child has a diagnosis of ADHD to take part in a project . They want to learn more about the impact of ADHD, and to test some treatments to see whether thay can help relieve symptoms and improve long term outcomes.

They would really appreciate if you could get involved. If you go to www.starsheffield.com  you can fill in the on-line questionnaire. Alternately you can ask for a paper copy by emailing Philippa (p.fibert@sheffield.ac.uk) who will also be happy to answer any questions.

ACCT 3 Monthly Swimming Session

Dear Member,

We are inviting you to join a scheme to guarantee you access to 3 monthly family swim sessions.

This is how it works:
The cost to ACCT of running 3 sessions is £600. Member donations towards the scheme amount to £140 currently and ACCT can contribute £100 from the charity’s funds. This leaves a balance of £360. We have 60 places for swimming each month so a voluntary contribution of £6 per person would amount to £360.
We know lots of you really value our swimming sessions and we are still actively seeking grant funding for them. In the meantime, we think that £2 per person per swim is very good value and will allow ACCT swimming meetups to continue.
We will book the sessions as soon as we reach the target of £360 – if we don’t we will refund any monies received.
One booking will secure access to all 3 sessions. Unfortunately we can’t refund money if you miss a session – the scheme won’t work if we do.
We hope this seems like a reasonable way to carry on ACCT swimming. We have listened to your feedback and hope this is a way forward.
If we can reach our target by 30th September, this will guarantee 3 swims before Christmas.

You can donate securely online to the swimming scheme through: https://acctsheffield.org.uk/donate-2/ (Any Gift Aid will be collected towards future swimming sessions)
You can also make a donation through the clubs by cash or cheque in an envelope marked “Swimming Scheme” and with a list of names to attend.

Best Wishes,
The ACCT Team

ACCT Family Swimming Sessions

We are currently unable to arrange another swimming session at Hillsborough Leisure Pool. We do not have any funding to run these sessions and have been funding them from our own funds. At the last session we asked for a voluntary contribution of £1 per person, we received £25 in donations for the sixty people in attendance. We would like to offer all of our activities without charge but cannot continue to do so without voluntary contributions and donations. If you have any ideas for fundraising please contact the office on 2230242.

Many thanks
