  1. Wine Fundraiser!

    Leave a Comment

    DeafACT is trying something different for fundraising this year – WINE!!

    We have a selection of six wines, reds, whites, sparkling and port at various prices.

    Please print off as many sheets as you need for order forms and sell to your family and friends.

    Once ready to submit your order please get it either physically to one of the Executive team (Mark, Chloe, Rona or Ricky) or scan it and send to the Secretary email.

    We will collate and submit bulk orders every month after the board meeting (first Monday of every month) and send a reminder closer to the time.

    Please help us make this a success – if you drink wine anyway why not buy it from here and help DeafACT in the process?
