Local special needs support group needs your help!


These ae the tokens in question, in every issue of the Express & Star. Any chance you could save them for a good cause, please? Image from Dena Sargent.

First up – sorry for the lack of posts. Work pressure is interfering with the blogging activities 🙁 – apologies.

Dena Sargent has been in touch to see if readers who get take Express & Star newspaper could help out the special needs support group she runs buy collecting ‘Cash for your community’ campaign tokens from the paper.

It takes seconds to clip them out and could make a vital difference to the kind of vital community support that’s so necessary in these times of social care cuts and restrictions.

Hi Bob

Please help – I run a club for special needs on a Thursday evening at St. Marks Church Shelfield, (Circle of Friends Sheffield).

The Express & Star are running cash for your community campaign and giving away £35000 to community groups. Could you please help me collect the tokens from the paper and I would be willing to pick any of them up when the campaign finishes on the 22nd October, or you can message me your full name and address as I can apply for free tokens as no purchase is necessary (I need addresses before Monday 19th Sept).

We run the group on a voluntary basis so even a small slice of the giveaway would help us immensely, and will help us providing this much needed service.

Thank you,

If you can help – and it really doesn’t take much, so why not? – you can contact Dena via Facebook here or comment here or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com, and I’ll hook you up.

Cheers all!
