A Christmas and New Year Message from the Chair

These are difficult times.

hard-times

This is not a surprise to any of you, unless you have had a very very long hibernation.

At MCTC, we have always said, ‘Everything will be all right in the end; if it is not all right, it is not the end’.

That has taken me back to thinking about the start of MCTC, nearly six years ago. Some of you may remember that that itself was done on a wing and a prayer and the belief and good will of a small group of people!

And now, I see all the good that has been achieved over these years (thousands of counselling hours, hundreds of people finding a more peaceful and productive way of living, lives saved) and I know that the work has to continue – for the sake of all of us who need MCTC’s vision, hope and expertise.

At present, with funding sparse and notoriously difficult to access, and with increasing costs as demand for our services rises (the number of people seen at MCTC has doubled in the last 12 months) MCTC is really feeling the pinch at the moment.

  • Could you spare any amount to help and support this invaluable work?
  • Could you set up a monthly standing order – for any amount, no matter how small (or large!!)?
  • Please, please don’t scroll past our posts on social media…the smallest amount you can give adds to someone else’s smallest amount and before we know it we could be safe again. And please pass them on to all your contacts…. You could maybe forward this email too….
  • We absolutely need to stabilise our financial position in 2017.

We have plans to achieve this but we cannot do it alone – WE NEED YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT.

If you have not been to see our premises in New Brighton, we would love to show you round and tell you more about what we offer here.

In the meantime, on behalf of all at MCTC, I wish each and every one of you a happy and stress free Christmas and a joyful New Year!

Be sensitive to those who find Christmas and New Year difficult for whatever reason.

Blessings

 

Pat Hughes

MCTC is asking for YOUR help this Christmas.

Our clients are relying on our support this Christmas. For those needing our help Christmas ihelps a particularly challenging time.

 

For some the choice is stark and fundamental…dark-place-1

 

 

 

Whilst MCTC offers unique support, in terms of accessibility, low to zero cost for the client, and commit to support the client until they regain their independence, this cannot be done without resorting to fundraising.cant

Generally, we take a passive approach to requesting support, but this Christmas we need to ask directly that you help us if you can.

Giving the gift of hope this Christmas through your generosity of spirit would make a significant difference to the lives of our clients. Providing comfort, solidarity and the help to develop the coping mechanisms they may need.

It is an unfortunate reflection on our world that so many people with very real difficulties find it so hard to get the help they need, because of the crisis of care affecting our country and region. MCTC provides this help, but needs you to sponsor them.

Some of you receiving this, may have already benefitted from MCTC’s services; others are associated with the Centre in different ways

This Christmas we particularly need your help. We’ve made it easy for you to help us by making the following facilities available.

The last 12 months has seen us double the number of clients we are seeing but that placed a strain on our finances.

MCTC RECEIVES NO STATUTORY OR NHS FUNDING.

We urgently need your help so are requesting that you donate as much as you can afford as quickly as possible.

Let us try to bring hope to those in need this Christmas.

If you are unable to help, could you please circulate this to others you know who may be able to help us. It’s so very important.
