Virtual Fundraising Challenge

In response to the Covid-19 outbreak we have had to change our fundraising approach; with no face to face networking or events able to take place, our income streams have been seriously affected.
It is critical that we are able to continue to support our customers, particularly as many of them are experiencing an even greater level isolation.

Your donation could enable us to

  • Purchase technology and data packages to enable access to digital learning and development sessions
  • Purchase activity packs that will be delivered to isolated customers as part of our outreach support – including materials for gardening, arts & crafts and cookery session to support our independent living skills programme.

In order to support the vital work of the Trust we are launching a series of virtual challenges. We have a number of activities running at the same time for our supporters, staff, volunteers, customers, family and friends to take part in. We know that these are challenging times for everyone, so we hope these events will be a bit of fun and break the boredom of social isolation. We look forward to seeing and hearing about how you get on!
