We Did It!

We are very pleased to announce that we were successful in the first stage of our Global Giving Gateway Challenge and raised £3,824 from at least 91 individual donors in 35 days towards our campaign to expand the Carers Time Bank! A big ‘Thank You’ to everyone who helped us and supported the campaign!

totaliser-we-did-itAs a result Carers Network has now won a permanent place on Global Giving which will enable us to access many other exciting fundraising opportunities!

But we’re not there yet! To complete the challenge we need to raise a total of £6,000 – which will enable us to help 50 carers share skills in our unique Time Bank.

Just £8 buys one carer’s materials for a skills workshop such as jewellery making, while £14 pays for recruiting a new carer to join the Carers Time Bank.

You can help us try and reach the target by donating or sharing the link to donate with your friends on social media!
