In previous years, Echoes has received toys and gifts from Viking FM/Cash For Kids Mission Christmas Appeal, which we then allocated to the children attending the party based on their age-range and gender. However because we don’t know your child(ren) like you do, this has caused us some difficulties in the past (for example, some toys have not been appropriate or suitable for your child(ren)).  To try to overcome this,  we feel it would be easier if parents could organise a little something for their own children, wrap and clearly label it with your child(ren)’s name – then it can be very discreetly handed to Echoes staff when you arrive at the party ready for Father Christmas to give to them.  This way every child gets something they can use and enjoy and no-one will feel left out by receiving something unsuitable for them.

 

We realise this adds some extra cost to the party, which is why we have subsidised the cost of additional family members attending this year.

 

If you would be interested in attending, please get in contact with us so we can put your name on the list and get an idea of numbers attending.

 

Echoes Has a New Patron!

The Hon. Olivia Cunliffe-Lister, wife of The Hon. Simon Cunliffe-Lister and mum of four, is part of the resident family in the beautiful Burton Agnes Hall. Craft genius, as seen from her ‘paperback Christmas trees’ in the Two Hairy Bikers Christmas Special, and expert home maker (It’s an absolutely massive Hall on 42 acres of gardens and 600 acres total land) she has happily taken on another title as Patron of Echoes. The Cunliffe-Lister family keep their home open to public visits and do a wonderful event for Christmas which Olivia and her family decorate themselves (craft genius!). They also host a hugely popular Jazz Festival in the summer and enjoy having people visit their home.

We’re absolutely delighted to have such a warm hearted and hospitable woman as our new Patron and are very much looking forward to working with Olivia as she is with us. Olivia said, ‘I am delighted to be a new Patron of Echoes and am impressed by the breadth of interesting and hugely worthwhile projects that the foundation undertakes, and the number of families it supports in the area. I am excited to be supporting Echoes and look forward to our work together in the future.’

The BIG Product Swap for Echoes

We’ve been looking for some wonderfully simple ways you can give to Echoes whilst giving our supporters something as well. We have found a simple and unique way of doing just that by teaming up with Arbonne.

Arbonne is an international company which makes completely Vegan and Paraben free beauty products, skin care lines for both men and women and some amazing health and nutrition products as well.

Everything from eye shadow to protein drinks to keep you looking and feeling good. We’re encouraging both men and women for the month of October to swap one of their normal items to one of the Arbonne items, try it out and see if you like it. You have a 45 day money back guarantee with every purchase and 15-35% of your purchase will be donated to Echoes!

We would love to get all of your thoughts on the lovely Arbonne products you purchase and look forward to hearing all of your thoughts. We’ve started using the products in the office here ourselves and can’t get enough, now we want to see what you think!
