A facility to handle online credit and debit card donations will be available, and there will be details of how to get involved in fundraising events. There will also be advice for people wishing to give anonymously to the charity. Furthermore, the new site will include information in community languages “and comply with the Disability Discrimination Act,” says the charity.The Body Shop is donating money raised via its mobile phone recycling and pin badge sale initiatives. Advertisement Body Shop funds Refuge’s new Web site Many charities still find it difficult to secure funding for Web sites so it is encouraging to see a funder willing to support such developments. If such a supporter can not be found, however, then usually it is better to include Web site developments within other projects for funding applications, as often Web sites are quite rightly seen by funders as means to an end.While Refuge announces the donation on its front page, it is regrettably unable, due to financial constraints, to make sufficient use of the site’s opportunities in the meantime. A headline of “This website is under development” is never going to engage and excite many visitors, but the charity says it can’t afford to change it. It is therefore focusing on the new site’s arrival in a couple of months’ time.Nor can they change the announcement that “we aim to launch the new site early next year and will be posting frequent updates on our progress.” Apart from overstating the time until the new site will go live, this has the unfortunate effect of suggesting that visitors won’t find much new information on the site for several months.Refuge is well aware of the shortcomings of their site but say that it is all down to lack of funds and the planned introduction of the new site. Sadly, this means that valuable fundraising opportunities are being missed: for example, the e-mail address to contact the fundraising department is not clickable.Refuge’s experience shows that charities can still find funders willing to fund a new or redeveloped Web site. On the other hand, their difficult position at present shows that you should never find yourself in a position where you can’t afford to amend your Web site.

RHM said its Bread Bakeries division had seen outstan-ding achievement by Hovis and an improved performance on cakes in the year to April 29, 2006. In a trading update, the firm noted that a “much improved” financial performance in its Manor Bakeries cakes business in the second half, was due to “planned actions” including the closure of its Eastleigh bakery. But it was too early to say if “the issues affecting Mr Kipling have been successfully addressed”. Turnover for the year will be 2% ahead of last year, with profits in excess of £170million, compared with £158m the year before, RHM said. It will announce its preliminary results on June 29.

It’s crazy. We always seem to win these tight games and pull them out.”With the 21-17 win against Minnesota on Friday at the Texas Bowl in Houston, the senior class claimed its third bowl victory in four years — a feat not accomplished since 1989-92. They left Reliant Stadium with the opportunity for people to view Syracuse in a different light. After one season in the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Orange is moving in the right direction.“That was our thing — to turn the program around,” Smith said, a junior who entered college with the senior class and will forego his final collegiate season for the NFL Draft, “and we definitely got the job done. We’re a bunch of small-time guys from different places, and they’ll definitely be better next year and we’re excited for them.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn their final game, they gave way to the promise for the future. Terrel Hunt’s game-winning touchdown run and Brisly Estime’s 70-yard punt return are the highlights from Friday’s win, but the seniors made it possible.Smith took the bulk of the carries, even with talented young running backs George Morris II and Devante McFarlane on the roster. Marquis Spruill had a critical sack on the Golden Gophers’ final drive. Bromley had a sack of his own. Macky MacPherson threw the block on Hunt’s touchdown run.Smith said he still hasn’t grasped that his SU career is over, but it won’t be long before he and his fellow seniors are just memories. People will remember them as the group that got Syracuse back to stable and that will shape the Orange moving forward.“Coaches can hold them to a higher standard because they’re winning,” Bromley said, “so you have to be a winner. It’s not an option. You have to be a winner.“The sky’s the limit from here.” Comments read more
