Megan Baker House – an update

Megan Baker House logo OpenSure blog

Megan Baker House continues to flourish thanks to fantastic staff and exhaustive fundraising efforts from staff, families & community and businesses, but efforts can’t stop for a moment.

Megan Baker House is OpenSure’s charity for 2013, and what a busy one it is. We’ve just received their latest newsletter (PDF available to download from our servers at this link: MBHNewsletterMay2013), and the merest glance leaves us wondering how anyone finds time for any work with so many events going on! Clearly they do find the time, as MBH’s excellent work continues to make all the difference in the world to families not just across the UK but across the world too.

Megan Baker House has strong support from stalwart fundraisers, but this doesn’t mean it can relax for a moment about its financial situation. Like any charity it faces tough decisions all the time, and chief exec Lee Gough has to balance ratios, needs and resources continually in order to maintain provision of MBH’s conductive education.

Support Megan Baker House in every day ways

It’s clear from the newsletter that many companies are glad to donate to Megan Baker House, but more can always be done, and the contribution made by the steady income from smaller sources is just as valuable. There are many ways that you, yes you, can make a contribution. How about

  • buying eggs from Henry’s Happy Hens? These are available from the MBH premises, and provided by a family that uses MBH’s services. So far Henry’s Happy Hens have raised £250 for MBH – clucking excellent!
  • MBH can make money from donations of old clothes. These can be dropped in to MBH in Moreton Eye or dropped into the clothes deposit bin in the Luctonians car park in Kingsland.
  • Support events contributing a share of profits to MBH, such as the Shobdon Food & Flying Festival, coming up this weekend.
  • Donate an item on MBH’s wishlist, eg white A4 paper, A5 envelopes, gardening equipment.

There’s always something small to you that would make a big difference to Megan Baker House and the families it supports. Please help them if you possibly can.
