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 Night – A great way of getting people together, just charge them to take part.
  • Jumble Sale – A good fundraiser and lots of fun too – why not try a vintage clothes sale?
  • Coffee and cake – A get together in the workplace over a coffee and cakes brought in by staff is always popular – take donations for the coffee and cake!
