News from PACT - October 2016
Dear <<First Name>>

Welcome to our October 2016 Newsletter

Clinic Appeal 
Hopefully you will all have seen the fantastic news that the target of £670,000 for the new oncology and haematology clinic has been reached. This is thanks to a lot of hard work from PACT supporters and families, a few grants and a large donation from Westfield Health.
 
Although we have achieved the target we are continuing to accept donations for the clinic appeal until May 2017 which was our original end date. This is because we know many people are still involved in fundraising and the target was based on an architect's estimate of costs. So, all the extra money that is raised will ensure that the finished clinic will be the fantastic facility that everyone deserves.
 
Can we say a big Thank You to everyone who has supported our clinic appeal; we couldn't have done it without you.
