After asking our members for input and listening to their suggestions, we have decided to break our newsletter into 6 individual categories (listed below) which people can subscribe to, based on their own interests. Therefore, as of the 1st February 2018, our newsletters will follow this improved format, allowing our members a more tailored experience for hearing about news and updates, and allowing us to update our members more frequently throughout the year.
All those who subscribe to ‘AGM News’ or ‘Charity News’ (which also subscribes you to AGM News) will get voting rights at our charity meetings and can help to steer us with big decisions we need to make. Subscribing to this category will update you on when the next AGM will be held and what items are up for voting. You may subscribe to as many or as few categories as you want, it is your choice, your charity. For more information on this, see below.
We fully understand that not all our members have an email account or like to receive news digitally, so we will still provide a printed, comprehensive newsletter once a year. If you would prefer to receive just a printed newsletter once a year, click here to give us your details.
Below are the new categories which members can subscribe to, along with information on what these categories entail, as well as how many emails you can expect each year. The number of emails you may receive will vary based on how much there is to update, but we will not send out more than the maximum number of emails per year listed for each category. Regardless, if these emails become too much, you may unsubscribe at any time.
Charity News – General information about our charity and the World of Alpha-1. Subscribing to this category also subscribes you to ‘AGM News’ – (3 newsletters max)
AGM News – Information on when we will hold our Annual Group Meeting and how you can join them, as well as what issues the charity is voting on – (3 newsletters max)
Info Days – News about when we will hold our Information Days – (3 newsletters max)

Fundraising Events – Info on allocated tickets for events like London Marathon, British 10K run, TrekFest and other National or large Regional events – (4 newsletters max)
Shop News – New shop products, promotional deals and general shop updates – (4 newsletters max)
If you subscribed to all our newsletters, you would receive a maximum of 20 emails a year, but this will vary by charity activity/updates, and some years we might only send 5 emails, for example.
You can change what you are subscribed to or completely unsubscribe at any time, which will be listed at the bottom of every email. If you sign up to one category, you may always change your preferences later on.
We take security very seriously, so when you subscribe to any of our newsletters, this will not sign you up straight away. Instead you will receive an email from us asking you to confirm that you want to subscribe and listing the selected categories. We do this to make sure that somebody hasn’t signed you up without your knowledge.
We will never give or sell your details to any external company.
