Thank You Letters

Thank you letters from just a few of the organisations we support through donations and more.

24th June 2021

from Aiming Higher Charity

I am writing to you on behalf of all the team at Aiming Higher to thank you for your generous grant. This will support us in providing trips for children with disabilities and their families to help counter the feelings of isolation that many of them experience.

As you are well aware, we support families with disabled children, many of whom are at increased risk from the Coronavirus and/or have needs which have made self-isolation more difficult for their families. Many are also facing increased financial hardship, and resulting anxiety especially over the lockdown period, and indeed as lockdown eases. As the world starts to reopen and we are available to take families out again this funding will no doubt bring a smile to many faces.

Thank you once again for your incredibly generous donation. We wish you, your family and all associated with the Glasdon Charitable Giving Committee well.

Best Wishes,

Hayley Kay
Charity Manager

from New Comfort Zone Blackpool

We would like to thank you for another generous donation from Glasdon.

We currently welcome around 62 people each Tuesday: some of them homeless and all of them struggling in these difficult times.

They all receive a hot brunch and drinks, a large bag of food to take away and a choice from a large selection of tinned food. Anyone who is homeless also gets help with emergency items such as sleeping bags.

It will be so much easier when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted sufficiently to allow us to bring our community indoors and be able to sit with them and listen.

Yours sincerely,

Gwen Cross

New Comfort Zone Blackpool

On behalf of the SVP Fleetwood Food Bank I would like to thank you, your Committee and all your colleagues for your continued support of the Food Bank once again at this time of year with your very generous cheque donation.

Colin Brown, Fleetwood Food Bank Secretary

I am writing to thank you for your very kind donation and ongoing support of the Lancashire Association of Boys & Girls Clubs. It is very much appreciated.

Ruth Forsyth, Finance & Admin Officer at Lancashire Boys & Girls Club

I write on behalf of our committee to thank your committee for their extremely generous donation towards our funds. You may rest assured that these funds will be used for the benefit of the users of the Community Centre. Many thanks for your continued support to our group.

from Trinity Hospice

Thank you so much for supporting the patients at Trinity and their families with your kind donation.

The last 12 months have been like no other – we saw how Covid-19 took hold of the whole world, and we saw how our community reacted, doing what they could to support our local hospice during such an uncertain time.

We have had to change some of our processes, but we have not changed how we care for all those who need us, and will always support patients and their families.

We are looking to the future with much more positivity, and hope that we are able to put some of our fundraising events and activities on that you are so used to seeing from us.

Again, thank you for all you do for us. Your continued kindness means so much to so many.

Yours sincerely,

Janet Atkins
Corporate Partnership Manager

from Claremont First Steps Community Centre

What a lovely surprise to receive your donation on coming into work this morning. We would like to take this opportunity to thank your Charitable Giving Committee for once again thinking of us.

Like all Charities and indeed businesses we have certainly suffered over the last eighteen months, but we are really looking forward to coming out of all the restrictions and trying to get back to normal in the next few months.

We have a lot of ideas in the pipeline to welcome our members old and new to start getting back to some kind of normality and your donation will help us to bring those ideas to fruition and get some parties started.

Once again a big thank you from us all here at Claremont First Steps for your very generous donation.

Yours sincerely,

Cathy Adams

Claremont First Steps Community Centre
