A team at our Charity Partner The Portman Estate are taking on the challenge to collectively walk one thousand miles for Carers Network!
On Wednesday 20th through to Thursday 21st September, they’ll be walking from Ascot to Buckingham Palace, with a few royal stop-offs along the way.
Some are choosing to walk 50 miles each, while others will join from 5 to 30 miles, raising money and awareness for Westminster’s unpaid carers.
Every pound they raise will go towards services and facilities that Carers Network provides. By helping them reach their targets, they could fund:
- a memorable Christmas Party for 250 unpaid carers = £5,000
- 400 unpaid carers to attend workshops on important issues such as having a will in place = £10,000
- the expansion of our unique Carers Time Bank project that helps carers to share skills and support each other = £15,000
If they can double their online target to £30,000 this could fund specialist support to 105 carers who are looking after a loved one approaching the end of their life.
