Subject: [Your charity or organisation name] New Initiative


I would like to let you know about an exciting initiative that [Your charity or organisation name] plan to launch in the new year.

We will soon be offering a brand new lunchtime and after-school club based on a new tablet computer game developed by Scripture Union: Guardians of Ancora!

Guardians of Ancora is a world-class tablet game for 8- to 11-year-olds offering an amazing virtual world and an immersive interactive experience of Bible stories. It combines the excitement and creativity of a high-spec online game with an immersive experience of Bible content and faith formation. Players go on an exciting journey that will lead them through the virtual world of Ancora, as they explore the stories of the Bible and find out what knowing God for themselves is all about.

The game is played on a tablet computer and children enter this virtual world as Guardians of the city called Ancora (meaning ‘anchor’ and ‘hope and support’). Their challenge is to find the Bible stories that have been lost. Find out more at

Our aim is to use this as a core tool for lunchtime and after-school clubs. For this to happen, we would simply need to download the free game on to ten of your school tablet devices. This has been very simple to do in other schools. (Guardians of Ancora has been made for mid- to high-quality iOS and Android tablets and smartphones such as: iPad 4, iPad Air (1 and 2) and iPad Mini (1, 2, 3 and 4); Google Nexus (7, 8 and 9); and Amazon Fire HD 6. For the best experience, play Guardians of Ancora on a recent smart device with at least 1 GB of RAM running on the latest operating system available for that device (Android 4.2 or later; iOS 7 or later).

The club will last for [insert timings here] and will be limited to ten children, with the possibility of new clubs depending on popularity and team availability. Each child will be using a tablet computer and volunteers will guide them through the Bible stories, with fun and engaging activities which run alongside the game.

If you would be interested in [Your charity or organisation name] starting a club in your school or would like more information, please contact me via this email address.

Many thanks,

[Your name and role in the club or organisation]
