AWOL - An Update

Orville is still AWOL but a possible sighting near where Bowstridge Lane meets Narcot Lane, near the traffic light controlled crossing gives us hope.
Could well be a different cat but please keep a lookout and if you know that a black cat with white nose and socks lives up there, please text me so we can cross this possibility off the hope list.

Not kowing what's happened is the worst!

Any information to this number please.

Support Milton’s Cottage while you shop this Christmas
Three easy ways to fundraise - at no extra cost to you!

Did you know your everyday purchases could help Milton’s Cottage this Christmas?  Here’s three easy ways to support us that won’t cost you a penny:

1.Shop at the Co-op
We’re delighted to have been chosen as one of three local charities benefitting from the Co-op Local Community Fund.  All money raised will support Darkness Visible, a project that aims to engage people with vision impairment with Milton’s Cottage.  Milton was blind when he lived here, and we are developing a programme of free workshops that explore the power of expressive writing to support people living with sight loss today.

To help us raise vital funds, we’re relying on Co-op members.  When you buy selected products and services, the Co-op gives you 2p for every £1 spent – and donates the same amount to local good causes.  If you’re not already a member, you can sign up instore or online for just £1.  To select us as your chosen charity please visit: https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/52950

2.Make us your preferred charity on AmazonSmile
Are you using Amazon for lockdown, Black Friday and Christmas shopping?  If so, you can make a big difference to Milton’s Cottage if you make your purchases via AmazonSmile - the charitable version of the Amazon website.  It has exactly the same products, prices and shopping features – with the added bonus that when you shop, Amazon automatically donates 0.5% of the purchase price to a charity of your choice. 

It doesn’t cost you any extra and it’s easy to select Milton’s Cottage as your chosen charity: just log in via https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ or create a new Amazon account if you don’t have one (it doesn’t matter if it’s Prime or not).  Once signed in, select Milton’s Cottage as your chosen charity from the drop-down menu – and make sure you’re logged in to AmazonSmile when you make any future purchases.

3.Select us for Give as you Live
You can also make Milton’s Cottage your chosen charity at Give as you Live – and fundraise for us every time you shop online.  Free to sign up to and easy to use, this website donates to your chosen charity every time you shop through them – at no extra cost to you.  Argos, Ebay, John Lewis, M&S, trainline and booking.com are just some of the 4,000+ stores that have signed up to this fundraising scheme.  Support Milton’s Cottage by selecting us as your chosen charity at: https://www.giveasyoulive.com/charity/miltons-cottage-trust-cio

2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and we would welcome your help now more than ever.  If you would like any further information about supporting Milton’s Cottage while you shop please don’t hesitate to contact Kelly O’Reilly on 01494 872313 or businessdirector@miltonscottage.org
