UNISON Pyrenean Challenge 2016 - "there for you"

To All Branches

Dear Colleague

UNISON There for You:  Charity Challenge Events

I’m delighted to report that this year, £23,000 was collected for Unison’s very own charity by those who took part in the ‘Four Nations Charity Challenge’.  So huge thanks to everyone who helped our brave walkers reach their fundraising target 

Plans are already in place for 2016’s challenge which will see us return to France for a fabulous walk in the Pyrenees - we’re aiming to raise even more money! 

This is where we need your help
We need a minimum of 20 participants to ensure the event goes ahead so we’re looking for you to help with:  

1.    Raising awareness by circulating information amongst your members and anything else that might inspire them to take part
2.    Demonstrating  your support for anyone ready to take on the challenge by perhaps:

Ø  making a donation to help them achieve their fundraising target
Ø  helping wherever possible with local fundraising activities that they may want to organise

What we’re sending you
Included in this email is the following:

3.    Electronic application form
4.    Suggested message for use in branch newsletters, websites, member email – in Word/PDF format

I guarantee that money raised really does ‘make a difference’ to so many members lives!

Thank you in advanceAny queries please email or call 020 7121 5620

Head of UNISON There for You

(I have recently become a UNISON NEC trustee member of our Charity "there for you".  In this short time I am so impressed with the work that "there for you" does for our members who have found themselves in financial difficulty. While I cannot take part in this sponsored event due to a clash, I am thinking of self organising and going on the walk earlier in September while still raising money. Watch this space).
