We as Friends of CMC Adventure offer...
The team at CMC Adventure value the prayers of the Friends; these cost nothing financially yet have a tangible and dramatic effect in the day to day life of the centre.
Please pray that the people who God would like to visit the centre are able to and that the people God wants to lead the groups find out about the centre. This is the most important thing you can do for us because the groups are the reason we are here.
Pray for our staff as they seek to witness and minister to our guests with gentleness and respect on a full time basis.
Subscribe to the CMC Adventure monthly prayer letter and set aside daily time to pray for the work of the centres.
Bring a group: We want to see the centres busy and fully used; bringing a group helps achieve this and provides much of the financial support we need.
Make a presentation: Tell your school, church, youth group etc. about CMC Adventure. Canvass interest in the centre and its work and see if like-minded people would benefit from a visit. If your group is small, you could join with another in your area to share transport costs.
Work parties: From time to time, the Friends join the staff to help on work parties; often helping with decorating the buildings or general DIY maintenance tasks. But sometimes bigger projects need many hands and sometimes specific extra skills.
Fundraising: Could you consider holding a coffee morning, vintage sale or open garden? Maybe keep coins in a jar or organise a sponsored event to support CMC Adventure, Bursary Places or volunteers’ costs.
Bursary places: CMC Adventure is often asked if they can subsidise one or more places for people who otherwise cannot afford to stay. We often do help but that means our financial resources are spread a little thinner. In 2017, CMC Adventure will give bursary places to the value of almost £40,000! A weekend bursary place costs from £137 and from £265 for a full week; could you sponsor a guest stay?
Make a donation: Regular giving to CMC Adventure not only helps support the work but also aids with budgeting. One off donations are also invaluable to the support; gifts can be general or specified for a purpose.
Consider a legacy: A legacy is a wonderful way to continue supporting the work of CMC Adventure when you no longer can.
Remember if you are a UK taxpayer any regular donations, one off gifts or legacy can be Gift Aided meaning that CMC Adventure get to claim an extra 25% from the government. Please ask the office for a Gift Aid Declaration.
Please note any donation can be given anonymously.
