We need a new supplier to print our newsletters. Can you ask your employer/school/college if they can help?
We usually print 200 copies, twice a year, 3200 sheets each time, that is 6.4 standard packs of paper. At consumer prices the paper cost is less than £20 each time.
Our supporters have been doing great work recently, raising some large sums for the charity. Jenny Cawley has again completed the Wirral Coastal Walk, in attrocious conditions early in the year. Through sponsorship she has now collected £750 for CVSA. Thanks to her and everyone who sponsored her.

Richard Fox took part in the Brighton to Addlestone bike ride,and raised £527.50 for CVSA, his daughter's nursery raised a further £245. A fantastic effort, thanks to all who contributed. He also promoted text giving so there may be even more to come. He promoted this on his blog, if you have a web site or blog, please consider doing the same.
