Fundraising 'Thank Yous'


THE CHRISTIE





MUSIC ON THE MEADOWS

Hi All, A huge thank you for your contributions to our annual Music On the Meadows - without your involvement we would not be able to put the event on - whether it be providing music on the night, or stuff going on in the background, like the provision of a stage and help with transporting equipment around! Despite numbers being lower than usual ( the very dodgy looking weather I think!) we still managed to raise a fantastic amount of £2038. Many thanks for your input, you're all superstars............... Michelle

Pudsey says a big 'Thank You' for raising £686 and we would like to thank all the late night shoppers at the Trafford Centre on 17th November for their help and generosity. Children in Need



MANCHESTER NEUROLOGICAL RESEARCH TRUST FUND

I am writing to thank you for arranging, at very short notice, the Sweet Rhythm Band to play at the Spring Fair on 25 April at Fiona Gardens. The band made the event go with a real swing and greatly contributed to the afternoon’s enjoyment and success.

 So far £925 has been raised from the Spring Fair for The Manchester Neurological Research Trust Fund in aid of Dementia Research. More donations are expected and hopefully £1000 will be the final total.

 Once again thank you for your support and great music.

 Best wishes,  Margaret


What a night! I'm still listening to the echoes of a great evening. Dougie at the Crown and Shuttle

I just wanted to personally thank the band for making today so successful and so enjoyable. You all were so good and it really helped the day go with a swing. Thanks to the efforts of everyone there, Samaritans have benefited to the tune of £450 which is absolutely brilliant, and much needed I can assure you. Kind regards, Maureen - Director of Manchester and Salford Samaritans


The entire week at the Trafford Centre was a great success from the point of view of promoting scouting in the area...and your concert was the icing on the cake to round off the week.  5th Urmston Scouts



MUSIC ON THE MEADOWS
I just wanted to say thanks very much for performing for us - it was a fantastic event (and very successful from a fundraising point of view as well) and one that we wouldn't have been able to have if it wasn't for the generosity of people like yourselves who gave up their time to come and play for us.  Thank you. Michelle Thank you for your kind donation which will help protect vulnerable children from abuse and neglect. Your money allows us to run vital services for children and young people such as ChildLine, the NSPCC Child Protection HelpLine and therapeutic services. As we hardly receive any funding from the government, these services simply could not exist without the support of generous people like you. On behalf of all the children you're helping, thank you again for your gift. NSPCC
