Thank You

Supporters can help in many different ways. There are many different volunteering opportunities, from working directly with clients (after being DBS’d) at the Mencap Centre, Link Up, Growing 4 All at Cottismore or on any of our off site projects, to volunteering at fundraising and awareness events or taking part in sponsored events in aid of us. Support can be a one off or ongoing. We are pretty flexible and terribly appreciative!

Some examples of support we have received include:

  • Some of our teenage volunteers putting on bands nights for us or persuading their schools to support West Berkshire Mencap.
  • Large companies have agreed to allow us to use their purchasing power to get better prices for such things as stationery and furniture. They also donate used goods such as flat screens, furniture and other items.
  • Donations, not just of money (which is of course always welcome) but also time, auction or raffle prizes.
  • Sometimes support is about banging the drum for us, letting other people know about our organisation, that we are a local charity dependent on contributions and that we provide a wide range of services for people in West Berkshire.

If you would like to support West Berkshire Mencap, make a financial contribution or just be kept up to date with our latest news then please contact us on 01635 41464 or Carrie-Anne.Ferrie@wbmencap.org.
