IF YOU BELONG TO A GROUP WHY NOT BOOK A TALK BY SUE

She is an experienced public speaker and has an illustrated presentation; “TEACHING MADIBA’S CHILDREN” about her experiences in South Africa and the work of Future Bright Trust. All proceeds to the charity

Beyond Dreaming – Teaching Madiba’s Children

Inspired by the great Nelson Mandela, Sue went as a volunteer teacher to South Africa.

In this talk you can share her time working in two very different schools, her life as a lodger in a convent and the legacy of this profound and life changing experience – the work she now does to help educate orphans in South Africa.

HOW DO WE FUNDRAISE?

  The Trustees organising our annual fundraising summer garden party which takes place in Dorset. You can see from our past newsletters how successful these are >

 By communicating with our friends and supporters. All our supporters receive 2 newsletters a year to keep them up to date with news of the children and of any forthcoming events

 Regular donations – thanks to the commitment and generosity of a growing group of friends who are enjoying watching the children thrive and develop. You can set up a regular donation here >

 Third party events – organised by kind friends have included a sponsored cycle ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats; coffee mornings; Lent Lunch, church collections; in memoriam collections

 Presentations by Sue Hennessy (see above) to community groups – the speakers fee and any donations are for Future Bright Trust

 Sale of the children’s work – so far this has been Christmas cards and currently skinny notebooks >

 Give as You Live – an incredibly easy way to raise funds when shopping on line >

 A key element of our success in raising funds is that our expenditure is very low. Trustees give their time for nothing; most of the expenditure to stage the garden party events is covered by sponsorship; our bank (Barclays) helps keep banking costs to a minimum.  Our supporters are keenly aware of this and offer it as one of the reasons why they are happy to support Future Bright Trust.

We strive to keep any costs to an absolute minimum. We are a small and very tightly run charity. Trustees give their time for nothing

Thank you for your support!

MEANWHILE…

  The Trustees will be organising our annual fundraising summer garden party which takes place in Dorset

We will be communicating with our friends and supporters – our newsletters bring them regular news of the children and their progress as well as fundraising updates

We will be striving to keep any costs to an absolute minimum. We are a small and very tightly run charity. Trustees give their time for nothing; most of the expenditure to stage the garden party events is covered by sponsorship; our bank (Barclays) helps keep banking costs low.

Thank you for your support!

“This is a superbly run charity to help provide stability and further the education of these children who had such an unfortunate start to their lives.”
