So, you’re interested in our lovely charity calendar? That’s great news!
We’ve spent the past few months creating the 2014 calendar which features our members at some of Sheffield’s best loved landmarks, including the City Hall, the Leadmill, the Cutting Edge sculpture, the Lyceum and the Peace Gardens fountains, and we are really proud of the result!
The calendar is raising money for the Parents’ Association of Children with Tumours and Leukaemia (PACT), a charity based at Sheffield Children’s Hospital which supports families whose children have been diagnosed with cancer. We chose to support PACT this year after the charity helped our President Lindsay Garfitt’s three-year-old niece Isabelle who was diagnosed with a rare form of childhood cancer, Neuroblastoma, in July 2012.
The calendar photography was done by SHWI member and talented photographer Laura Bainbridge and the cover design was done for free by Daniel Rose of DRD Studio.
Local companies Apollo, BAPP, Beer Central, Boudoir, Dale Hirst, Exposed, Foster’s Dental, Gregory’s Haulage and Sheffield Signcraft also got on board to sponsor the printing of the calendar, meaning that every penny from sales can go to PACT.
The money bit
Each calendar costs just £10 and you can feel good knowing every penny is going to help children with cancer and their families. If you’d like us to post your calendar to you, the cost is £12. The extra is to cover the envelope and postage. The calendar is limited edition (and we’ve already sold more than half!) so if you want one, please act fast before they all go! Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and how many calendars you’d like (plus your address if you want it posting) and we will reply with our bank details so you can transfer the money. Please ensure you use your name as the reference when making an online payment.
Your calendar will be posted via Royal Mail second class once payment is received. If you’d like to collect your calendar from us instead, please let us know when you email us. You can collect from the Chapeltown or Meersbrook areas or from Electric Works on our meeting nights (Thursday 21 November and Thursday 19 December from 7pm to 7.30pm). Please note if collecting, we must receive cleared payment beforehand (either bank transfer or cash on collection).
