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?
  • Leave a gift in your will.

    Is the work of The Carers Centre close to your heart?  We fully recognise your loved ones come 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. It's important to get good advice before writing a will.

    If you are considering including a gift to our charity we would like to say 'Thank you'.
