Events and Fundraising
As One Voice is not heavily funded we are always looking at ideas to raise more funds, in the past we have had jumble sales, craft fairs, coffee mornings and charity nights, as well as selling homemade jams and crafts in the office.
Events and Fundraising ideas currently being organised are as follows This year Kendal & South Lakes Centre for Independent Living "One Voice" have 2 events on the same day and they will be held at Stonecross Manor Hotel on Milnthorpe Road in Kendal. The first event is a Jail and Bail. This is where local, well-known and well connected people are “arrested” by a police officer and jailed until their friends pay bail for them. This is usually set at a certain amount and once that amount is paid the “arrested” person is bailed and the money is given to charity. In this case it will be coming to One Voice. We need nominations to find local and well known members of the community that others would like to see “arrested”. They must have a lot of friends and family to raise the cash to pay their bail so you cant have an unpopular neighbour “arrested”
The other event on the same day will be a Fun Day, also at Stonecross Manor and will be a good day for all the family with hook a duck and other games, face painting, music, fun and laughter. The fun doesn't stop there as we have also got the evening event which includes raffle, auction and fun, so as to coincide with the prison theme, we are doing fancy dress (optional) of famous TV or other wise criminals.
The Jail and Bail will take place on the morning of the 20th September and those to be jailed will be remanded in custody overnight in a locked room at Stonecross Manor. The other events will take place on Saturday 20th September from noon onwards. Many thanks in advance to Anne McLean and her team at Stonecross Manor.
Please get in touch with Emma at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01539740933 or send nominations to Emma Hine 'One Voice', Car park level 3, Westmorland Shopping Centre, LA9 4LR by 14th August 2014
On Going Fund Raising Within the office we are starting a 100 club, people pay £5 per month and are given a number if you are one of the three numbers picked at random at the end of each month you will win a cash prize.
We now have a JusttxtGiving service, so people can donate to One Voice, all monies donated come to the charity. To do this just text KCIL01 the amount to donate eg KCIL01 £5 then send to 70070, this will help generate more funds for us and help keep us open and offering services to people for a longer period Thank you.
