Upcoming Events:- Support MS in Surrey
Having submitted an application, our ‘Standing On Our Own Two Feet’ project has made it through to the Aviva Community Fund voting stage.
Now we need your help. We need votes and lots and lots and lots of them to stand a chance of winning one of forty amounts of £5,000 that are up for grabs. It will be tough, as we are small and we are regional but where there is a will there is a way.
Please tell your friends, family, work colleagues and neighbours to cast their 10 votes for Samson Centre for MS and our ‘Standing On Our Own Two Feet’ project, within the Health and well being category.
Votes need to be placed by midday on the 21st November 2017. To register and cast your 10 votes simply click the link. If anyone has any difficulty please email or phone me and I will try to make sure you can cast a vote or 10 for Samson.
Please note that the Shalford Christmas Fair takes place on Sat 18 Nov 2017.
We are lucky enough to be one of the charities that is being supported by this Fair as we were last year.
Do go along and support the Fair if you can.
It is renowned in this area for being a very good Christmas Fair.
Donating all or part of a ‘Winter Fuel Allowance’.
Thank you Joe for your idea and for also donating your
‘Winter Fuel Allowance’ to the Samson Centre for MS..
If anyone would like to join Joe, please do let me know and I will keep a running total of ‘Winter Fuel Allowance’ monies raised.
This year we will be taking a different approach and instead of holding our Xmas Fair over in Milford, we will be having a mini Xmas Fair at the Centre on 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 Dec from 10am – 12:30pm.
We hope that by doing it this way, many more of our members and carers will be able to buy some lovely goodies at the Centre. We will be focusing on the following stalls – cake stall to also include chocolates, chutneys, jams etc, bottle tombola, plants, good quality gifts and there will also be a raffle. A great opportunity to get involved in this while you are at the Centre w/c 4 Dec.
For those of you who like to make jams and chutneys, please reserve some for us to sell at the Xmas Fair. Also, please start putting aside bottles only for our tombola – we will need lots of them! Alcoholic and non alcoholic bottles all very welcome.
