These are difficult 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.
PLEASE HELP US
