Peaceful Place was established in 1996 by members of Shoebury Baptist Church to offer specialised help and support for people in South East Essex living with Young Onset Dementia.
As with any charity we rely on your kind donations to continue to offer our service and support. However, this goes beyond cash donations as there are many things that are always in high demand, ranging from items of clothing to the services of performers. Below are a number of things that we are always grateful to receive at Peaceful Place.
RAFFLE, TOMBOLA OR AUCTION PRIZES
We are always grateful to receive any unwanted gifts to use as prizes in the many fundraising raffles, tombolas or auctions that we organise. If your place of work can donate goods of any description, we will always be grateful for them - if not for prizes, we can sell them in our charity shop.
SINGERS, DANCERS AND MUSICIANS
Our members come to our Day Centre five days a week and we try to offer as much entertainment for them as possible. We have had some wonderful people come in and donate their services free - whether it's for one afternoon only or one afternoon a week. If you could entertain our members on a one-off or regular basis in any way, shape or form - singing, dancing, accordion-playing, hairdressing, manicuring, or offering a therapy - we would love to hear from you.
DISPLAY ONE OF OUR COLLECTING TINS
Could you display a collecting tin for us at your business, place of work, club or Church? Could you suggest that others do the same, perhaps in a pub or local corner shop? If so, please contact Caroline Gerrard – Fundraising and Communications Manager – 01702 546476 / firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE HELP US TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Our services make all the difference for people with Young Onset Dementia and their families. This is only possible because of the support of volunteers, fundraisers and those who continue to donate to this important cause. Please, help us to change lives; whether you wish to volunteer in our day centre or charity shop or you have a great fundraising idea, it all goes towards a great cause.
