FAQ's

  

Do you give grants and provide days out and treats?

No, we do not provide these, we arrange holidays in Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire, using our two caravans that are sited on the Haven site.

how many people can go in the caravan, are they accessible and is there a charge?

There are two caravans.  The caravans are not wheelchair accessible but they do have a ramped decking area that allows chairs to be wheeled up to the caravan door. There is no charge for the caravan holidays, other than a £25 administration fee, and a beach hut is also provided for your stay.

WHAT IS THE CRITERIA AND HOW DO I APPLY?

The holidays are for adults and children with life threatening, shortening and terminal conditions and servicemen and women who have suffered emotional and physical injuries.

HOW CAN I FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE HOLIDAYS YOU OFFER AND OTHER INFORMATION?

Please email your query to holidays@mariahansonfoundation.org.uk and someone will contact you as soon as possible.

HOW CAN I FIND OUT ABOUT ALL THE LATEST INFORMATION TO DO WITH THE CHARITY AND EVENTS?

There is a Facebook page which is MeandDeeCharity. This is updated every day, and there is also a news feed on the website. Please do email rather than use Facebook messenger for any enquiries.

Events are listed on both the website and Facebook page, and methods of how to attend and buy tickets will also be listed there.

HOW DO I RAISE FUNDS AND/OR DONATE TO THE CHARITY.

Visit our Donate or Sponsor page for information.

You can donate from £1 by text to setting up direct debits for a monthly subscription. Buying tickets and attending listed events is a great way to offer support also.

You can encourage your company to make me&dee your charity of the year and raise funds on our behalf. Not only will it help us, but it is a great way of team building and promotes a positive message to your clients.

Payroll giving is a tax efficient scheme that allows you to make regular donations to us straight from your staff’s salary. Your donation is taken out before tax, so that a £10 donation will actually only cost you £8.

Your company may have ‘sponsorship matching’, where you match a staff member’s sponsorship efforts. It’s a simple yet motivating way of rewarding your team.

To set up an event to raise funds yourself or through your company, please email info@mariahansonfoundation.org.uk with ‘fundraising event’ in the title and a fundraising pack will be sent out to you.

HOW DO I HELP / VOLUNTEER FOR THE CHARITY?

You can add your name to our volunteers mailing list and apply for information to be part of ‘the me&dee angels volunteer group’ by emailing info@mariahansonfoundation.org.uk with ‘volunteer’ in the title.

For our charity, it is not always about the money. You may be in a position to help through your company or with your own skills for printing, I.T., driving, supplying prizes for our events, swapping work hours for working for the charity in corporate social responsibility actions.

WHERE ARE YOU SITUATED AND WHEN ARE YOU OPEN?

All enquiries to info@mariahansonfoundation.org.uk will be answered as soon as possible either by return email or someone will ring you, depending on your enquiry.
