Thank you for making 2017 an awesome year!

Thank you for making 2017 an awesome year!

We’ve had a busy 2017 with our fundraising and it’s been an awesome year we’ve beaten some of our targets and had fun doing it. We enjoyed hosting our first charity dinner and auction, we continued with the old favourites, the annual quiz (promise questions will be easier next year) sponsored walk and regular community events. We’ve been lucky that people have wanted to challenge themselves and run lots of miles to fund raise for us and that our younger volunteers have organised their own fundraising events in our honour. We received generous donations from individuals and businesses over the last 12 months which illustrates the huge support we have among our community.

Here’s the serious bit!! So we are completely self-funded and we need to raise over £160,000 each year to continue to operate as we do. Mainly we do this through grant applications, our fundraising events and the support of our community. This figure is only going to increase, as next year brings more exciting activities that will make our offering rock even more! So watch this space!

It’s reassuring to know we can count on you as we continue with our journey. You’re really helping to put Keynsham and District Mencap Society on the map.
