We are pleased that you are interested in helping us to support parent carers and seldom heard communities by working with us on fundraising. Your generosity will keep our work going. Helping us means we can continue to provide much needed support to parent carers and members of the local community. Did you know that by raising just £225 we can enable 125 people, parents and disabled children together, to have much needed family quality time together in a supportive, safe environment.
Since 2012 we have been able to help 1284 people have a short break. We couldn’t do this without public support. It can be challenging to run expenses for a caravan such as utility bills, insurance, cleaning & many more. However with your help & donations we can keep both caravans running for as long as possible.
Through tickets & passes to local family based activities; delivery of activity packs or wellbeing packs; signposting & support; food support provision; training and much more, we have over the past 2 years alone helped over 1000 people in times of need. This takes time, money and resources which we couldn’t do without volunteers, corporate partners, donors and very generous members of the public.
If you would like to organise your own fundraising event or get involved in other fundraising activities with us, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
