We are delighted to tell you about the launch of a new fundraising scheme to support the centre. OMSTC 100 is a lotto with fantastic odds, and once set up it requires no time or effort on your part. Paid up members can buy one or more numbers which are entered into twelve monthly draws. There are no running costs, so a guaranteed 50% of all income is awarded as cash prizes, and all the rest goes straight towards the running of the centre. With numbers costing only £5 each per month, the income from just 100 sales builds a prize fund of £3000 a year, with the same amount going to help fund the centre. With three prizes a month, the odds are extremely good.
Signing up is easy please contact Sue for an application form.
A huge thank you to David Harsant, his daughter Alice and Sarah-Jane’s friend Lucy for running in the Oxford Fun Run.
They hope to have raised over £500.00 – well done!!!!!!!!!
