Brilliant new brochures to boost community support

New fundraising brochures for the Camelia Botnar Children’s Centre are now available in print and on-line.

These brochures are an integral part of the centre’s local awareness and fundraising initiative to gain support from corporate organisations, clubs, groups and individuals in order to reach this year’s target of £150,000.

With no state or external funding, the centre is 100% reliant on donations and the aim is to secure enough funding to refurbish, expand and open for 50 weeks of the year.

There are two versions of the brochure – one focuses on the benefits of a fundraising partnership for corporate organisations with ideas such as nominating the centre as their Charity of the Year; and the other details how individuals can help this registered charity by becoming a fundraiser or volunteer.

Michael Kay, Director of Partnerships & Fundraising explains: “We need the local community to get behind us to help raise awareness and funds so that we can continue to provide our services for free, as well as expand and refurbish. That’s why our new brochures are so important, they will help us to deliver our message to local businesses, clubs, groups and individuals and give them ideas of how they can help us. For example, local businesses can support us through payroll giving or sponsorship schemes; clubs and groups by holding fundraising events; and individuals by donations, regular giving or taking part in sponsored events.”

About the Camelia Botnar Children’s Centre:

The Children’s Centre is a registered charity which was founded by Octav and Marcela Botnar in memory of their daughter Camelia in 1979.  The centre was previously supported by the Nissan UK and the Camelia Botnar Foundation, however funding from both sources ceased in 2009.  The children’s centre receives no state or external funding and is 100% reliant on donations. The future aim is to secure enough funding to expand and refurbish the centre and to evaluate the possibility of opening for 50 weeks of the year.

The centre was purpose built for pre-school children especially for those with special needs and from disadvantaged homes. Now the facilities are fully inclusive for all children from 2 months to 5 years, and are free of charge. There are four nursery groups with a high staff ratio of expertly trained nursery nurses ensuring each child receives individual attention. Children with social needs and long-term medical conditions such as epilepsy, asthma and cystic fibrosis are welcome at the centre which also has sensory rooms.

The centre has close links with the local health, educational and social services (the centre act as a contact centre for children in care) authorities and assists local Colleges with their student training programme for nursery nurses, social workers and teachers.
