December Newsletter

Firstly, a big thank you to all those who have contributed financially to The Jane Metson Foundation. We are starting to receive regular monthly donations in addition to a range of one-off contributions. Our aim is to increase this flow with additional donors and fund-raising activities.

It is six months since Jane passed away and we appreciate the generosity being shown to create a fitting legacy for Jane and to support a number of causes with which she was connected and actively supported.

The donate button is now up and running on the website which allows one-off donations electronically (we would still appreciate you filling in a Gift Aid Declaration Form so that we can enhance your donation by reclaiming tax).

We have initiated the first round of support for the 8 specific charities listed below by paying £1,000 to each. This is a timely payment at the end of the year for each of these worthwhile causes. We are also now in active discussions with two charities to support specific projects that we think Jane would be really proud to put her name to. We are looking to spend an additional £10,000 on these two projects. We will let you know further details when they are finalised so that you can keep track of how we are spending some of our funds.

We want to do more and would ask that you help build the donor base and the number of people who are on the newsletter distribution list by directing family and friends to the website where they can sign up to the newsletters.

Please also check the website for fundraising events to come in the Spring and Summer 2015. Many thanks and thank you for your support.

Have a Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

Kind regards,

The Trustees
