Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion

Midweek Visiter - - Community Link Foundation - BY NI­COLA KENYON vis­iternews@south­portvis­

WITH just over eight weeks to go it seems that it might be ac­cept­able for us to start talk­ing about Christ­mas!

It’s that time of year when peo­ple start to think about giv­ing and we would love to be con­sid­ered as a re­cip­i­ent for any fundrais­ing you might be do­ing.

Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion (CLF) is a lo­cal char­ity that awards grants to peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions from South­port, Orm­skirk, Formby and the sur­round­ing ar­eas who are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing ill health, dis­abil­ity, or are in need of new equip­ment to im­prove their qual­ity of life.

In re­cent months, peo­ple have ap­plied to us for help with a range of things in­clud­ing fund­ing to­wards med­i­cal equip­ment and money to­wards buy­ing an elec­tric bike to help a teenage boy get out and about with his friends and fam­ily.

There are a cou­ple of ways that you can do­nate to CLF so that we can con­tinue to help peo­ple in the lo­cal area.

One of those ways is by join­ing our 600 Club or sign­ing up a fam­ily mem­ber or friend as their Christ­mas gift.

By join­ing the club, you would be giv­ing some­one the chance to win £1,000 in our monthly lot­tery.

As well as the monthly top prize of £1,000, an ad­di­tional five peo­ple win £100 each month.

And, as the club is lim­ited to 600 mem­bers, the chances of win­ning are al­ways pretty high.

It costs just £5 a month and by be­ing a mem­ber of the lot­tery you will be help­ing Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion to raise money that can be used to help peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions in the lo­cal area who have ap­plied for fund­ing through our grant ap­pli­ca­tion process.

An­other way to do­nate could be by mak­ing a do­na­tion to us rather than send­ing Christ­mas cards.

Just a small do­na­tion from a few peo­ple can make a real dif­fer­ence.

We would love to hear from any­one who would like to do­nate in this way.

We would also like to hear from any groups or in­di­vid­u­als who are look­ing to fundraise in the new year, whether it’s through hold­ing an event or nom­i­nat­ing a char­ity of the year at work.

If you would like to help, or join the 600 Club, please get in touch via our web­site www.clfoun­da­tion. or find us on so­cial me­dia.

Thank you to ev­ery­one who took part in the CLF Com­edy Work­shop Show­case on Sun­day night, and thanks to ev­ery­one who sup­ported the event at the Ra­mada Ho­tel.

We are so grate­ful to you all and will pub­lish a round-up of the event next week.
