Bulletin Appeal 2013
‘the bulletin’ magazine has now been published for many decades and it is very rewarding to learn how useful people find it. We hear more and more that for many members ‘the bulletin’ offers something of a life-line. As people are becoming less mobile, for many the magazine is providing a real link to other Polio members. We are frequently told that reading of the experiences of others, learning what is generally happening in the world of Polio and gathering valuable tips and information on matters affecting daily life is very comforting and re-assuring for people. This is why it is vital that ‘the bulletin’ should continue to be produced on a bi-monthly basis.
Unfortunately, things of value often come at a price and ‘the bulletin’ is no exception. We have further explored cutting costs by moving from paper to an electronic version. We must, however, accept that only a small fraction of our members use the computer or are able to go online and we feel we must continue to provide all our members with the same service, no matter what their circumstances.
We are engaging more and more advertisers to offset production costs but this is still not enough. We are always reluctant to ask for contributions but, unfortunately, it is something that we cannot afford to avoid doing. Times are getting harder for all and like other charities we are finding it increasingly difficult to raise sufficient funds.
If you feel you are able to make a contribution we would be most grateful but please do not feel obliged.
If you are able to help you can do so by completing the attached form and sending it to Central Office. You can either make a one off donation on the One-Off Donation Form. Alternatively, you can set up a monthly or annual Direct Debit. If you wish to vary the amount you are already donating by Direct Debit you can also use this form.
If you prefer to make a Debit Card payment you can call Freephone 0800 043 1935. If you are already donating on a regular basis we would like to thank you for your continued and valued support.
Please be assured that if you are unable to make a donation, we will still continue to send you your copy of ‘the bulletin’ every two months.
Thank you for your support.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees
