Can you make a Pact for PACT in 2017?

PACT is calling for people to make a new year’s resolution to take on a charity challenge in 2017 in support of its work.

The adoption charity, which supports families across the south east and beyond through adoption, award-winning therapeutic support and community projects, would love to hear from anyone who can make a Pact for PACT and raise funds for its work.

People can choose what challenge they undertake in aid of PACT, from signing up for a sky-dive to holding a cake sale. Other fundraising initiatives could include taking part in a sponsored walk, run or bike ride; encouraging your company, church or school to host a dress down day; or getting sponsored to give something up for a month.

All money raised will help support the charity’s community projects and post-adoption therapeutic services for families across the Thames Valley. For example £155 will fund a support package for a vulnerable woman at the charity’s Alana House for a month including one-to-one sessions with a specialist support worker, or £50 will fund a child who has witnessed or been affected by domestic abuse to attend a Bounce Back 4 Kids session to help them manage their feelings and break the cycle of domestic abuse.

PACT Chief Executive Jan Fishwick said: “We would love to hear from anyone who would like to support our vital work by making a Pact for PACT this year. All money raised will make a difference by enabling us to help more vulnerable children and families.”

PACT Fundraising Manager Laura Davison added: “There are many different ways in which you can support PACT from running a marathon to organising a pub quiz. Whatever you choose to do we can support you along the way with help, advice and ideas. Please do get in touch if you would like to get involved by making a Pact for PACT.”

You can also support PACT’s work by becoming a Friend of PACT and making a regular contribution to the charity or by following @PACTcharity on Facebook and Twitter to help raise awareness of its work.
