Many thanks to all the generous shoppers at Tesco on 7th and 8th April 2017. We thought everyone would be out enjoying the splendid sunshine - but there were plenty of people around doing their shopping. We raised just over £400.
In the past we have received some funding from the local Councils and Parish Councils whose areas we cover but this is not regular income and we therefore need to find money from other sources.
Local groups – Lions, Rotary, Round Table and Masonic Lodges etc. are very generous and we also receive donations from members of the public. The Rayleigh Lions group have supported us since we started - 36 years ago!!
Coffee morning - we have held these at our local WI Hall in Rochford and also at Rayleigh Methodist Church and it's a chance for our volunteers to show off their cake-baking skills.
Collecting – outside supermarkets and doing street collections is a good way to spread the word in our local area – and make some money!
Quiz Night – our quiz evenings are always well attended and prove to be very entertaining. A raffle is held and, as the prizes are donated, the money received is a good source of funds.
Local Schools - fun runs and non-uniform days have proved successful
Local Banks have also supported us generously.
Third Party Recordings – local groups such as Southend Blind Welfare Organisation (http://www.southendblindwelfare.org.uk/) ask us to provide audio recordings of their newsletters and information leaflets.
We have also produced an audio leaflet for Southend Hospital's Audiology Department. We provide the expertise and facilities and invoice them for our time.
