Party on down with CPotential

15 May 2019

Table with lots of party items

Are you having a children’s birthday party soon? Here’s a simple way to invite your young guests and make the event even more memorable.

We’ve teamed up with Kindergifts, a new online invitation platform that enables people to support the causes they care about whilst reducing gift waste and teaching children about giving back.

It’s easy 

Instead of receiving lots of small gifts – often things, let’s be honest, your child doesn’t need – you can now send a free Kindergifts party invitation with group gift and charity details.

When your guests RSVP to the invitation, they have the option to contribute whatever they’d normally spend on a gift. You choose what percentage of the party proceeds to donate to CPotential.

After the party Kindergifts makes two payments: one to you for the purchase of your gift and one to us.

By supporting our vital services, you and your party-goers can put a smile on lots more children’s faces. What could be kinder?

When you shop online through Amazon you can also support our services for disabled children – at no extra cost. It’s super quick and easy to arrange.

There’s no need to set up a new account with Amazon if you’ve already got one. If you’re logged into your Amazon account, just shop through smile.amazon.co.uk. All your account and payment settings will be there as normal.

All you need to do is select CPotential Trust as your charity to support.

If you’re not logged in, just go to smile.amazon.co.uk and login as you would normally. Again, everything is simply carried over onto smile.amazon.co.uk

If you shop via the app on your mobile or tablet, you can turn on AmazonSmile within the app, which makes it even easier to start donating while you shop. To do this, follow the steps below on your mobile or tablet:

  • Sign up to Amazon Smile online www.smile.amazon.co.uk
  • Update your Amazon mobile app
  • Open the app and find ‘Settings’ in the main menu (☰)
  • Tap on ‘AmazonSmile’ and follow the on-screen instructions to turn on AmazonSmile on your phone

Amazon Smile is then turned on all the time through the app.

AmazonSmile is run by Amazon. It has exactly the same products and prices but it donates a percentage of the cost of your purchase to support our services for disabled children, without costing you a penny.

Definitely something to smile about. Happy shopping!

Thank you so much.

 

We’re behind you: Barnet drama group sprinkle fairy dust at CPotential

We were delighted to welcome two members of Barnet’s The Warren amateur dramatic group to our Centre today.

Lynne Tyson, The Warren’s Chairman, and Howard Struckwick, Financial Consultant, presented a cheque for £2,165 to Jo Honigmann, CEO of CPotential.

Lynne said: “Every year we’re proud to donate our profits to small local charities who are in need of funds. We are delighted to donate to CPotential and Woodstar School. It’s been so rewarding visiting you today to meet the children and to see the wonderful work you do.”

“We raised the money from audiences who came to our pantomime Rapunzel at the Wyllyotts Centre and our recent musical show at the Bull Theatre in Barnet.”

Lynne and Howard met the children and teaching team at our school, and were very interested to learn about what we offer and our plans for the future.

Jo said, “This is a wonderful surprise and we’re so grateful to everyone at The Warren and their audiences for their generosity. We’ll be using the funds to support our Learning for Living activities to help children with movement disorders achieve their potential.”

And a quick plug: You can help support The Warren by booking tickets for their next great family show ‘Beauty the Pantomime’ at the Wyllyotts Theatre Potters Bar in January 2019.
