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

Welcome to our July 2016 Newsletter
Unfortunately this newsletter brings some sad news about two of our long standing supporters, Pat and Jean Savage. Many of you will know them as the ladies who do the Tombola at the Christmas Party and they have been doing this for more years than we care to remember. We are sorry to report that both these lovely ladies unexpectedly passed away in May. We know that Pat and Jean will be sadly missed by all the families that they have come into contact with over the years and everyone involved with PACT.
 
Update on past events
Charity Ball
This was held on the 21st May at Baldwin's Omega and we hope that everyone who came along enjoyed the evening. We had great entertainment from magician Benoit Pierre BenZ and singer Andy Ellison and the food was, as usual, excellent. We are grateful to everyone who bid in the auction and silent auction and although we are still collecting in the monies, we anticipate that we will have raised over £15,000 which will be a nice boost for the Clinic Appeal. As you can imagine, a lot of work went into organising the event both in the weeks before and on the night itself and we are very grateful to everyone involved.

AGM
This took place on the 11th July at The Quadrant in Sheffield. Hart Shaw presented our accounts for the financial year up to the 31st March 2016 and it was nice to hear that PACT's finances remain healthy even with the fundraising for the Clinic Appeal.
 
Information & Dates for your Diary
M3 Summer Fayre

This is a reminder about the event which is to be held on Sunday 31st July between 11:00 and 15:00 at the Niagara Centre in Sheffield and is being organised by the nurses and staff from Ward M3.  There will be lots of things to do, including face painting, children's crafts, children's games and a Treasure Hunt.  There will also be stalls selling second hand goods, sweets and homemade treats, a Tombola and a mini raffle.  Tickets are £2.50 for adults and £1.00 for children with free entry for the under 2s. Tickets are available in the PACT Office or from Ward M3 or you can pay on the door. Please do come along and support this event which is raising funds for the Clinic Appeal.
 
Clinic Appeal
For those who have been following the progress of our appeal on Justgiving or on the poster in clinic, you will have seen that we are now over half way towards the target figure. We know there is also money expected in from some recent fundraising events together of course with the money from the Ball which will increase the total even more. 
 
PACT is only a small support charity so it is fantastic to see how much we have raised so far with the help of you, our friends, families and supporters. Every penny donated means we are one step nearer to getting the new clinic which is so desperately needed. 
 
Christmas Cards
These have now arrived and will shortly be on display in the office and on the website. We will also have some of last year's designs at reduced prices for sale through the office. If anyone would like to take cards on a sale or return basis please contact the PACT office and we can get some ready for you to collect.
 
Christmas Party and Bowling
This is a reminder that the party for the younger children will be on Sunday 4th December between 11am and 3pm at Niagara Centre, Sheffield. The bowling will take place on a week night around this time and is for the older children and siblings. Full details will appear in our October newsletter.  
 
Remembering Day 2017
This event for bereaved parents will take place in May next year. As previously mentioned on our Face book page, if you did not receive an invitation for this year's event and would like to attend in the future, please contact the CLIC Sargent team on 0114 271 7406 or the PACT office and make sure we have your current address.
 
Annual trip to Pleasure Island
The trip is on Sunday 4th September and we are going to Pleasure Island Family Theme Park at Cleethorpes.  
 
If you wish to go on the trip please complete the Disclaimer letter below which is also the booking form (you can also print off this letter from the downloads page on the PACT website). Then return the form to the PACT office with a deposit of £5 per person which will be refunded on the day (we will accept cash or cheques for the deposits).
 
At Pleasure Island, children who are under 1 metre in height get in free so we will not need a deposit for them, but they must be listed on the form and please let us know on the booking form which children are under this height.   
 
Please let us have the completed form and deposits in the PACT office before the 18th August as we need to let Pleasure Island have final figures and payment in time for us to send out the tickets. As usual, families can either make their own way there or go on the coaches from the hospital. Please let us know on the form if you wish to go on the coaches so that we can ensure there are enough seats.
 
Please note that unless we receive your booking form and deposits in the office by the 18th August we cannot guarantee that you will be able to come on the trip.
