MacMillan Cancer Care Partnership
By Folkus Point cic, Dec 7 2012 09:24AM
We recently met with MacMillan Cancer Support to dicsuss many and various possible connections and joint-working opportunities.
One idea which has come out of the meeting is a fund-raising calendar to help us both to bring in much needed revenue to help us both carry out our work. While MacMillan are in a completely different arena to ourselves, being a huge and hugely successful charity who support people with cancer across the country in many and various ways, they are always looking for good ways to continue to develop that work. We always feel that calendars are a great way of getting a message across to people which stays with them through the year.
They are also an ideal way of displaying the pictures which can be produced through our community work for the benefit of both the owner of the calendar and the photographer themselves.
What we are hoping to do is to gather together a group of well respected people from the world of the arts from Leeds and across the country to judge a photography competition, the prize for which will be inclusion in a calendar which will be distributed across Leeds, with special focus on the large student community here.
Local buisnesses will be invited to sponsor the caledndar so that they can connect their names with MacMillan and ourselves, as well as giving themelves some much needed publicity into the bargain.
At the moment we are approaching some local big names in the world of the arts, so if anyone reading this in the winter of 2012/13 has connections to such a person, please drop us a line and let us know how we can reach them.
We will update as soon as we have more details.
