Events

We regularly hold events to raise money for our charity and to raise awareness of the challenges facing people with a sensory loss. Recently we had a charity auction that featured lots including sporting experiences and family attraction tickets, as well as a wine tasting evening hosted with Helen Jones Wines. Thank you to everyone who supported these events.

Below are details of the events that we have still to come in 2017:

 

Race Night - Saturday 18th November

Hosted by Walthew volunteer Mike Litchfield, our annual Race Night fundraiser is always a great night out. Entry is £5 and doors open at 7pm on Saturday 18th November, entry includes a hot buffet. You'll also get the chance to bet on the races and win some fabulous prizes!

 

Christmas Fair - Saturday 2nd December

We will be having a Christmas Fair between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday 2nd December. If you would like to sell your festive items then tables are £7.50 each, entry is free for the public. Mince pies and bacon butties will be available.

 

Christmas Carol Service - Sunday 10th December

Our annual Carol Service will be held from 3pm on Sunday 10th December, with support once again from Rev. David Brewster and our friends at St Matthews Church, Edgeley. There will be mince pies and mulled wine available, and a British Sign Language (BSL) interpeter.

Community Fundraising

We are lucky to receive the support each year of many community groups and organisations. In 2017 we have the support of groups including the Decibelles Ladies Choir, Cheadle & Gatley U3A and Hazel Grove Rotary Club. If you would like to support us in future then we would be happy to discuss this with you, and to provide any materials that you may need.

Our team regularly do talks across Stockport about the work of our charity, and we would be happy to book a date in to speak to your group or organisation. Please contact Dan Oliver using the details above if you would like to organise a talk.

 

Corporate Fundraising

Each year we are delighted to receive the support of businesses from across Stockport, including those who participate in our annual blind bowling tournament and those who have one of our charity collection boxes. We would particularly like to thank Booth Ainsworth, a long term supporter of ours who raise money through regular dress down days and cake sales - over the years they have helped to raise more than £7000 for us!

If you or your business would like to support us, whether for a month, a year or on a more permanent basis, please contact Dan Oliver on 0161 480 2612 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
