deep regret we wish to inform you that
one of our trustees from Killingbeck
John Kenneth Lillie
Passed away recently
are at that time of the year when the monies from the sponsored
walk are starting to come into me for banking. I am trying to
acknowledge all the donations individually but as you can imagine
there are quite a lot coming in.
Can I therefore, say a big thank you to all those who did the
walk on our behalf.
I should imagine that its not easy in the present climate to obtain
sponsorship so thank you for all the effort you have put in to
The depression has hit the charity but not as badly as I thought
it would so at the moment we are ticking over very nicely. Over
the past few weeks we have had two weekend collections at IKEA
and despite the recession we have collected £703.58 and
£587.66 respectively – so a big thank you to those
who stood collecting for us.
Many of you won`t know this but one of the jobs I do is to compile
the donations list. It`s logic really as I list all the money
and reasons for the donations when I bank each week. I have experienced
some problems of late in as much as I have not been able to read
the writing on some of the letters and it`s not always easy to
obtain the right information and names, so if I have made an error
on the list in the past – I do apologise.
would like to start my comments by thanking everyone who supported
our Sponsored Walk, and our week promoting our 20th Anniversary
at the LGI, full reports inside. You will now have received our
Christmas Draw Tickets and I would ask you wherever possible to
support this fundraising effort.
Following our AGM when we re-elected Trustees, our treasure said
he would stand for a further two years. But indicated that following
his term of office 2009-2011 he would like to stand down from
this position with this in mind the charity needs to seek a replacement
for the end of his term. The Post would require some one with
book keeping skills and computer skills and of course time. If
there is anyone among our membership who has these skills and
would like details of what is entailed please get in contact with
me at the address on the front of this newsletter. Of course it
goes without saying the applicants must have impregnable character
references for honesty and trust.
Further to this the trustees are to be asked to draw up a plan
to ensure continuity of operation of the charity after all many
of our Trustees are not getting any younger, including myself.
To close my comments I would like to add that in my work I meet
so many patients, relatives and staff who cannot praise enough
the benefits they have enjoyed provided by Take Heart. Be proud
to belong to this YOUR WONDERFUL CHARITY
