We need your help

20 August 2016

You may know Relate… but many people still think of us only as ‘marriage guidance’. Yet we do so much more and, in fact, 58% of our work locally last year was with children and young people (5-21 years).

Unfortunately, due to public sector cuts, we have to secure funding to support these vital services through trusts, foundations and donations.

Until a few weeks ago we were able to offer our play therapy and young people counselling services free of charge. However, due to a growing demand for these services, our funds have been fully committed and we have had to withdraw these free services and can now offer only a bursary in a limited number of cases.

To help raise funds for these vital services we are holding a fundraising auction at The Old Town Hall auction rooms in Woburn on Tuesday October 11th from 6.30pm. Last year we ran a fundraising auction and raised almost £2,000. So this year we want to try and exceed that figure!

You can help by coming and supporting the event. Tickets cost £15 per person (or £25 per person including a £10 gift aided donation).

The event will be hosted by Charles Ross Auctioneers and your auctioneer for the evening will be our CEO, Angela Foll, now in her second year of new-found auctioneering skills. Moreover, we have a line-up of exciting auction lots including a family visit to The National Space Centre, a Formula One ride experience and a day pass to Center Parcs Woburn Forest for up to 5 people (1 car).

If you would like to attend, please email us for your tickets saying how many you would like at what price and including your postal address. You will be invoiced later: peter.law@relatebedsandluton.org.uk
