MCTC 2017 Calendar

Umbrellas

I know – we have only just entered 2016 and you are only on the first page of your MCTC 2016 Calendar – but we must think ahead!!

Many of you will have seen or maybe owned an MCTC calendar in previous years, or even in this current year. We hope you have enjoyed the photos and artwork that our friends, therapists, supporters and clients have so kindly contributed.

For the last three years, we have distributed approximately 200 calendars – some are bought at fairs and events, others by friends and supporters and others are distributed to local businesses and organisations who have supported MCTC in one way or another.

Each month, we use the calendar picture as our profile picture on Facebook and Twitter – we have approximately 1000 followers on social media and we plan to send it out through our distribution lists (approx. 500 and growing) each month too as well as showing each picture on the website each month.

The theme for next year’s calendar is TRANSFORMATION and we already have a few pictures ready to go in it.

For 2017, we are inviting local businesses and organisations as well as individuals to SPONSOR A MONTH (details of costs below).

This way, we hope to make the calendar pay for itself, raise some funds for the Centre and increase the circulation as well as offering local businesses and organisations the opportunity to support MCTC and to promote their services in the local community and beyond.

New Year Message from Chair of Trustees

New Year

 

I expect when we wish ‘Happy New Year’ we all have different thoughts and meanings. As I have grown older I find myself wishing good health: mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. For good health I believe we have to have a positive attitude and nothing brought this home to me more than an experience I had in Thailand several years ago. On a Fairtrade tour I was in the jungle experiencing a home stay and the lady of the house offered me a shower. Gratefully I accepted and followed her out to what could only be described as a shed. Within, there was a ‘hole in the ground’, a small bucket and a large wooden tub, the latter containing a large ladle. This was the shower! Now every day as I enjoy the luxury of an indoor shower I give thanks for what I have and for being alive.

Have a blessed 2016 and more importantly: be a blessing to others.
