Giving up a little bit of your time to fundraise for us is a rewarding and fun way to support our work and make a huge difference to the lives of unpaid carers.  Whether you want to organize an event or fundraise as part of a group, we’d love to hear from you. Do please get in touch with your ideas or if you would like some help getting started.

Getting together with friends, family, neighbours and colleagues or taking on a personal challenge, the options are limitless, here’s a few suggestions:

  • Sponsored events – Take on a challenge and raise sponsorship for us.
  • Quiz Nite – A great way of getting people together, just charge them to take part.
  • Jumble Sale/Table Top Sale – A good fundraiser and lots of fun too – why not try a vintage clothes sale!
  • Coffee and cake – A get together with friends or colleagues over a coffee and cake is always popular – charge a fee and donate the money raised.
