Making a regular donation

As a charity, we rely on grants and fundraising. Regular donations allow us to continue to deliver our services to our beneficiaries. This can be done via our 'JustGiving' page or, if you prefer, ask for our bank details and set-up a standing order.

Do you enjoy spending time with people? Are you a good listener? Can you help someone feel heard? If you can spare an hour, or perhaps an afternoon, our beneficiaries enjoy meeting new people and being able to share their stories. We work to ensure people feel included and valued. You can be a part of that too!

We offer home-cooked meals and refreshments to our beneficiaries so always need help in the kitchen. We can offer access to basic food handling training so you can help to prepare and serve nutritious meals safely. Time spent serving hot drinks or helping to prepare meals is greatly appreciated. This is a great opportunity to engage with beneficiaries who would otherwsie be eating alone.

Do you have a knack for crafting? An eye for colour? Know a ball pein from a claw hammer? Or are you more of an 'outdoors' type - perhaps a rambler or a gardner? Whatever your skill or hobby, if you have the enthusiasm and passion to teach, we are always looking for activity leads. We aim to offer a range of activities to engage our beneficiaries and love to see people grow in confidence as they learn new skills. Ask about Activity Lead opportunities.

Our centres are used regularly so need to be well maintained, clean and fit for purpose. If you have a love for cleaning or fixing things there is always something to get involved with - from putting on a new coat of paint, fixing a leaking tap, to cleaning the oven, keeping the guttering free of moss or keeping our toilets clean. There is never a dull moment! 

Are you interested in holding a fundraising event with your work collegues, friends or neighbours. We would love to hear your ideas.

Sponsored events and activities are great fun and can involve your whole community. In recent years some of our fundraisers have completed marathons, parachute jumps, held street parties, run bingo nights, and completed personnally challenging quests, with one lovely lady even gave up chocolate for lent!

Mark Howard is one of our long standing fundraisers who is always pushing himself to the limit, finding new challenges to test his staminar and strength. Over the years he has completed a number of wheelchair and handcycle challenges across the country which are recorded through our blogs and social media pages.
