Bag Pack Port Erin

We are delighted to inform you that we collected a whopping £617.91 at the Port Erin Store Bag pack last Saturday. This including the sale of 11 SftD shopping bags.
A truly splendid result. A big thank you to a wonderful bag packing team, the manager of Port Erin store and to all the friendly and obliging staff. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, as always.

Membership renewal

It’s that time of the year again when your membership fee is due on the 1st April.  Each year our hardworking volunteer Membership Secretary  spends a considerable amount of time and effort chasing members to pay their subscription.   

PLEASE HELP HER AND PAY IN TIME !

The membership fee is still set at a minimum of £10 but you can make any payment above if you want to make a donation to your charity.  

 If you pay by cash it would be even more helpful if you were to start paying by standing order, this saves you the effort paying each year and also helps the Membership Secretary. That must be a win-win. The standing order form is available here.

The address to send your money, cheque or completed SO form to is: Monica Clark, 42 Wybourn Drive, Onchan,IM3 4AN
