Huge thanks to all those who came to Peace in the Park!

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

We have had a few weeks off over the summer (while two of our trustees move house to Lincoln, and the other two prepare to have a baby!) but wanted to write a quick post to say a gigantic THANK YOU to everyone and anyone who donated to our charity at Peace in the Park. The festival which took place in Sheffield in June this year raised a whopping great £3000 for charity, which was split between Names Not Numbers and CRESST, a local charity doing amazing work in schools to prevent bullying.

This means each of our projects will be receiving (in addition to monthly donations as normal) £750- wow! We’ll keep you updated with how the money is spent and the difference it makes over the coming weeks. But thanks once again, and bye for now!

Are you ready to peace out?

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

Yes, it’s coming, in less than 48 hours! The amazing community arts festival that is Peace in the Park is happening on Saturday 9th June and we can’t wait! Last night the Trustees plus a few extra pals met to sort out the prizes for the stall tombola (thanks to Phil and Helen for some particularly winable prizes this year!) and to get all the crafty bits and bobs together.

We’ve got 15 people confirmed to help with bucket shaking on the day too, which is excellent news- thanks to those who have already signed up! Don’t worry if you haven’t got round to it, just come and find our stall (near the Info tent on the ‘Love’ field halfway down the park) to get shaking on the day itself!

We’ll need people all day, from 12-8pm, so it’s never too late to sign up!

 

Confused about where this event is happening? See map below, or click here.

If you don’t fancy bucket shaking but you want to help out in other ways, the good news is… you can! Just come along to the stall and give us a hand with the banner we’ll be making, and with the amazing tombola.

We look forward to seeing you on the day!

Peace in the park is coming!

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

At Peace in the Park, an annual festival that is taking place in Sheffield on Sat 9th June, Names Not Numbers is one of the represented causes for the day. It’s a great opportunity for us to raise money and awareness about the amazing projects we support, and we need helpers!

We are going to be fundraising all day, with people shaking buckets and selling programmes to make as much cash as possible for the charities represented (us and CRESST). Please check out the Facebook page for details and let us know if you can be a bucket shaker! You can do it for anything between 1hr and 8hrs… but please do let us know!
