I am writing to you from the NeuroMuscular Centre (NMC), a centre of excellence for people with Muscular Dystrophy (MD), a progressive muscle wasting condition. For 29 years NMC has supported thousands of individuals with MD, their families and carers. Think physiotherapy, vocational training (graphic design and other training courses) and employment opportunities (we have a social enterprise on site which does design and print work).
Based in Winsford, Cheshire, the NMC is set in beautiful grounds and this year we have been working to make use of our lovely surroundings, encouraging visitors to the centre to get outside and experience the physical and mental health benefits that gardening gives, by growing plants and vegetables. We have built accessible allotments and took part in National Gardening Week and The Big Butterfly Count.
We want to continue our gardening activity over the winter months and as such, I am writing to ask if you could help us by making a donation of bulbs for a bulb planting workshop we are planning. I understand that you must receive a large number of requests but we would be happy to receive any donation, no matter how big or small and any donation you could make would really help with providing opportunities for the people who attend the centre. In return, we would be happy to tell people about your organisation, in our newsletter, on our website and on our social media pages and obviously, we would tell all the people growing your seeds too.
We would also like to extend an invitation for you to visit the centre, to see what we do for yourself. Should you be interested in paying us a visit, please get in touch so that I can arrange this.
Thank you for reading our request.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your email and for explaining all that you do. This is something we would be very happy to contribute towards and help in any way we can. I would be interested in visiting you at some point in the future but in the meantime I will most definitely send you a collection of Spring flowering bulbs to you in the post.
