ACCT Needs Your Help…..5th Annual Raffle!

ACCT needs your help to secure high quality prizes for our 5th Annual Raffle. We have branded letters and emails with our formal request for support available from Tracy Woolhouse (can be contacted by messaged on Facebook ACCT Admin) or at the ACCT office. Could your employer, local business or contacts help?

Please keep us informed of any requests made as we are keeping a list in order to avoid duplicating requests. The details are below for general information, as mentioned above please get in touch for a letter or with contact information.

We hope to raise funds to continue our activities by selling tickets over the Christmas period for our 5th annual raffle. We are seeking donations of high quality prizes, cash prizes or vouchers from local traders and businesses. We hope you will consider supporting ACCT this year so we can continue to offer support to so many families across the city. Those who generously donate our top three prizes will be named on the tickets & posters. All contributors will be listed on our website http://www.acctsheffield.org.uk.

Our raffle will be drawn at our parents’ meeting at St Mary’s Church & Community Centre, Bramall Lane, Sheffield, S2 4QZ on the 13th of January 2016. Please respond if you can help in any way by November 2nd (our printing deadline) to be considered for listing on the tickets.

Regular Giving

Dear ACCT Member,

We are writing to you from ACCT to ask if you would consider setting up a regular donation to support ACCT and help us to run our weekly clubs. It costs around £250 to run one teenage club session and over £400 to run an ACCTivate session: we only receive funding for alternate weeks so offering clubs on a weekly basis comes at a considerable cost to ACCT.

You will know from experience that ACCT sessions can be life changing for those who attend. ACCT helps both children and adults to develop friendships and build networks of support. ACCT provides a safe and caring place for children and teenagers to play, develop social skills and meet other likeminded individuals.

If you are in a position to, then please consider whether you can set up a monthly donation to support ACCT.

Regular donations give ACCT security to fund our weekly clubs and other activities, changing the lives of those who attend. Regular donations also ensure that we can plan for the future and continue to create positive change in the lives of our children, teenagers and families.

If you are not able to consider a regular donation then please be assured that making a single donation, no matter how big or small, makes a difference to the lives of the children, teenagers and families that we support.

If you would like to donate through secure online giving please visit the ‘Donate’ page on our website: www.acctsheffield.org.uk/donate-2/ and click the relevant link. There is also an option to sign up to Gift Aid which allows us to claim an extra 25p for every pound that is donated!

Thank you for your continued support towards ACCT. It is our members, teenagers and children that make it such a special organisation.

Kind Regards

The ACCT Team
