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.'
AVIVA COMMUNITY FUND - We have applied for this funding to cover our Caring with Confidence Sessions and now in the £10,000 category, this has gone to the next stages, The Public Vote.... If we can get enough votes from the Public this much needed programme can carry on... Voting opens on 1st May 2015 for one month only. At aviva.co.uk/community-fund. Please contact Nadine or Debbie for posters hand outs to Carers, Family or Friends... your votes would be much appreciated.
