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.'
A MASSIVE THANK YOU!! to everyone who supported us at Waitrose Oadby during Carers Week! We raised over £1200!
THANK YOU also to everyone who supported our Aviva bid. Unfortunately we were not successful this time.
Watch out for Charles' Challenge! Our Centre Manager, Charles Huddleston, will be pushing a wheelchair around a 5k course on 22nd August. Babs Marson, one of our fundraisers, will also be meeting the challenge! You can sponsor either of them - or both! - by contacting us at 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?
