Trustees have decided to make 2013 a year when we concentrate on promoting the services of the charity. Fundraising events, including annual street collections, are being shelved so volunteers and supporters can concentrate on spreading the ‘Use Us or Help Us’ message as widely as possible. First steps involve requesting church magazines, parish council newsletters and community publications to print an article in one of the first three months of the year explaining what the charity does and how it can be helped.
