If you can help us in some way, however small, we’d be very grateful.

D-UK Christmas Cards

This is a new venture for us and we hope that you like them. There are two designs as shown. The greeting inside both is ‘Best wishes for the Season ’.

The cards come in packs of 10, with envelopes. Each pack contains 5 cards of each design. A pack of 10 cards costs just £5.00 which simply covers the cost of their production and postage to you.

Payment is required with all orders and we need to know your name, address and the number of packs you are ordering. You can order your cards in several ways:

Volunteer Vacancies

Any help or support you can give, will be gratefully received. Just a few hours on a regular basis can make all the difference. Even the distribution of a few leaflets to your local library, doctor’s surgery, hospital etc. would help us publicise our charity’s work.

There are many ways in which active help in running the charity can be given. There is, inevitably, quite a lot of administration involved and we would like to have a small team of people sharing these small tasks to ease the load.

Other areas where we need more help are our Pen Friend Club and Phone-a-Friend schemes, social media, publicity material, co-ordinating website updates, and so on.

We do need to meet our volunteers, so we always ask people who volunteer for us to initially attend one of our committee meetings. It provides an opportunity to find out what you’d like to do for us, and gives you a chance to make sure you really want to do this before you commit to anything.

Volunteers all provide any support services for the charity from our own homes, but we meet up to six times a year, usually in Derby, as this is a good central point for everyone.

None of our volunteers are paid for their time, but are refunded reasonable expenses.

Set Up Your Own Support Group

You can set up your own support group in your area and as a charity we will support you. We can offer this support by helping you to find people to join your support group and we can also provide initial financial support (for example, for the cost of booking venues or for promotional use). Importantly, your support group needs to eventually become financially stable without our backing, but we will support with this also.
