Ways to Support us

Volunteer

There are numerous ways you can volunteer with the Trust: taking part in sponsored events, helping us put on a special event like a concert, making or selling crafts, hosting a coffee morning, helping with administration, designing posters, manning exhibitions, sourcing materials and numerous other activities, all are equally important to the Trust.

If time is not something you can give, perhaps you would like to help sponsor an event? Even a small amount can make all the difference.  If you would like to help in this way we will be happy to give you specific details about our sponsoring needs for any fundraising event.

Can you help?

Friends of Wainman Trust

Our ‘Friends’ are very important to the charity and bring with them a broad spectrum of expertise.  They support the trustees in their decision making, increase our profile by sharing our aims and objectives with their contacts,  invent ways to raise funds, prepare artwork, find suitable venues for events, share professional experience, attend and manage craft fairs and much, much more. They are looking for more team members. If you would like to join them please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.

The Friends of Wainman Trust are (l-r):
Hannah Westby, Olwen Davis, Val Thompson, Jayne Mowson and Andrea Whitehead

Pray

We place a great deal of importance on prayer. We have got this far by the grace of God and our amazing donors and sponsors. Although the Care Community is a huge project requiring a large amount of money, we are encouraged and inspired by our God for whom ‘nothing is impossible’ (Jer 2:17, The Bible). Our Together Clubs also require continuous funding to enable us to run the clubs weekly, open at new venues across the city and pay staff to coordinate them.

Since October 2013 there has been a significant increase in the profile of the Trust and we are delighted that recent activities to increase awareness have been so successful.
