Fundraising - why we need you to keep going
So that we can offer services that statutory bodies do not support, we rely hugely on fundraising. We have a waiting list of carers seeking support we cannot give without additional funds.
You can make a huge difference to people struggling to cope with the effects of caring for disabled or ill loved-ones. 'I had no help or anyone to talk to or turn to. I was at my wit's end. It was the lowest point of my life until I contacted The Carers Centre.'
How you can help:
Become a volunteer fundraiser. We need help to run events so please come and join in - it's fun.
Organise an event with your friends or family. It could simply be a meal or a party where you ask for donations.
- Why not ask friends to sponsor you to achieve a lifetime's ambition such as completing a marathon, skydiving or abseiling?
Leave a gift in your will
Is the work of The Carers
Centre close to your heart? With life expectancy on the increase, more
and more people will be taking on a caring role. The work of The Carers
Centre will continue to be an essential and vital support service for our
carers. We fully recognise your
loved ones comes first and making a Will is never easy but we hope you would
consider leaving a gift, no matter how small to help secure the future of The Carers
Centre for others.
Making a will is not as
complicated as many people think. It is the only way to be sure that your
family, friends and favourite charities are provided for. A solicitor will be able to
advise you on the legal aspects, the different ways to make sure that all your
named beneficiaries are provided for as well as ensuring that your Will is
correctly drawn up. If you would like to leave a donation to The Carers Centre
you can either leave a pecuniary legacy (a cash gift for a specific sum of
money) or a residual legacy (a figure of what is left of your estate after your
dependents are provided for)
you are considering including a gift to our charity we would like to say ?Thank
Ask to be added to our events list, this way you will automatically be invited to future fundraising events.
