Welcome to WaveLength’s June round-up of activity. WaveLength has had a busy month providing TVs, radios, DVD players and CD players to the UK’s most isolated and vulnerable people. This month, we’ve helped people who are elderly, chronically ill, disabled or victims of abuse to achieve contact, comfort and companionship. We’re sending over this newsletter to keep you up-to-date as a past supporter. To find out more about what we’ve been up to, visit www.wavelength.org.uk or see our Facebook page or Twitter feed. If you’d rather not hear more from us, just reply with the word STOP.

During June WaveLength got excited about the Olympics, Paralympics and Diamond Jubilee, won a prestigious small charity competition in partnership with eBay, and gained a new animal supporter, Chai the cat!

Our latest BT Olympic Storyteller interview is with John Fearon, a professional storyteller from rural Derby. Our CEO Tim Leech also represented WaveLength in the other big event for summer 2012, the Diamond Jubilee.

Closer to home, what we at WaveLength are really proud of this month is our win in eBay’s Small Charity Competition! During Small Charity Week (11th – 17thJune) eBay ran a Give at Checkout Competition, with five small charities winning an ad placed at checkout for seamless giving – and WaveLength was one of them! Donations at the checkout were made through our seamless JustGiving account, raising much-needed funds for the vulnerable and isolated people WaveLength supports. We also won the chance to auction off a special experience, and chose an ‘experience’ donation – fly fishing on the Granta with Tim. To learn more about running ‘experience’ donations on behalf of WaveLength, get in touch at [email protected].

Last, but not at all least, our latest adorable animal supporter, Chai the cat, joined us on Pinterest. Cute Chai keeps his owner company, while WaveLength provides company, comfort and contact for isolated and vulnerable people across the UK. To help WaveLength help people who need a ‘window to the world’, you can donate in a couple of clicks at https://www.justgiving.com/wavel, or use the postal methods outlined in our ‘Make a Donation’ page. 

At WaveLength, we love to hear from you. So if you want to share news or feedback, do get in touch with a phone call or letter (details at www.wavelength.org.uk), an email to [email protected], or by searching for ‘WaveLength Charity’ on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest!
