Small Charity Week celebrates and raises awareness of the essential wb2ap3_thumbnail_FOR-USE-2018_01_26-2018-SCW-Logo-WDate-smaller.jpgork of the UK’s small charity sector who make an invaluable contribution to the lives of millions of individuals, communities and causes across the UK and the rest of the world.

The people behind Small Charity Week are running a competition from Monday 18- Saturday 23 June for a small charity to win up to £450 if they get the most number of supporters on social media saying why they love the charity on social media.

Please help us to get as many entries as possible by downloading the pdf template, write down why you love the Centre and post a picture of you and the poster to twitter or Instagram or the Small Charity Week facebook page.  Make sure you tag us, use the hashtag #ILoveSmallCharities  and @SCWeek18 so that your entry is counted.  See below for the rules of entry for each social media network.  You can post one entry to all three if you want to.

Spread the word and ask all of your friends and family to do it as well so we get as many people entering for us.  This is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness of the Centre and possibly win some cash!

If you cannot do this yourself, or you don't have a social media account,  please ask for Gemma at the Centre and I can help you complete the poster, take the photo and post it on your behalf.
