Can you join the final push to make our Centre a reality?
Did you promise to ask 50 of your friends for £10?
If so, thank you. You’re one of many who have already made that commitment. Even if you haven’t joined in yet please consider doing so now. We’ve finally got planning permission - hooray! and the clock is ticking away for us to raise £250,000 before we can lay that first stone. So yes, your effort is vital!
Just think, if everyone connected to St Mary’s managed to find 50 friends who could spare ten pounds then the building work could start right now!
If you want to ask friends online, below is a shot of the 3 Billboards which has really focused this campaign and which might make your post easier. The all-important link is to the St Mary Centre My Donate page: https://mydonate.bt.com/donation/v4/donate.html?charity=stmaryscentren16
It’s never easy asking for money. Here’s what one person’s posted:
I hate asking for this but I need to. Can 50 of my friends donate £10 towards the rebuild of the St Mary’s Centre? It will host a Hackney Night shelter for the homeless, a Hackney Food Bank and the Hackney Migrant Centre. Please help. https://mydonate.bt.com/donation/v4/donate.html?charity=stmaryscentren16
Do you have a £10 you can spare for a really good cause? It’s to help build a new centre in Stoke Newington that will host a Hackney Night Shelter, a Hackney Food Bank and a Migrant Centre. https://mydonate.bt.com/donation/v4/donate.html?charity=stmaryscentren16
If you’re not on social media then just ask 50 people directly and give them the link to the online donation page at: http://stmaryn16.org/the-new-st-marys-centre.html
Thank you all so much for helping to turn our vision for the new centre into reality.
