Following the successful launch of Eden Mencap Society’s (EMS) 30th Anniversary ‘Help Us Buy Our Home’ campaign, the Society have developed a novel way to raise some of the money they need – Donate a Brick.
Jacqui Taylor, Chief Officer of EMS explains “We have had to move our support services three times over the last 10 years. We have less than four years left in this building unless we can raise the funds to buy it. Part of our improvement plan is to build a new entrance porch to make it more accessible for our wheelchair users. We thought if people purchased one of the bricks they would be contributing to our legacy while leaving a legacy for themselves.”
There are two purchase options available at different costs and both offer the ability to personalise the brick with a small plaque. So for as little as £15 you could help support the campaign and the children and adults with learning disability and autism spectrum disorder, from across the whole of the Eden Valley, who use the building.
If you would like to support EMS, call into Ullswater House, Duke Street, Penrith or visit our newly launched brand new website www.edenmencap.org.uk or donate at https://mydonate.bt.com/charities/edenmencapsociety
