Larger Gifts For Specific Projects

Larger gifts mean we can go above and beyond in our support for carers

Making a larger gift

If you’re considering making a larger gift, thank you very much. Donations like yours are really important.

We want to match your generosity to the projects which will most benefit carers. Below, you will find a list of items which need funding at the moment.

To keep administration costs to a minimum, we can only accept donations for the projects listed if you are able to donate the full amount.

If you would like to make a donation or if you have any questions about the projects below, please e-mail fundraising@carersinbeds.org.uk or call Jolene on 07462 125532.

Young Carer Activities

£500 would give young carers of all ages a break from caring.

At our monthly clubs, young carers can hang out, relax and have fun with each other. They say that being friends with other young carers is really helpful to them; their other friends can’t relate to the day-to-day realities of caring. 

£500 would pay for activities at the clubs between July and September.

A celebration event for dementia carers

£650 would pay for a event for people with dementia and their carers. 

An event to put on the calendar and look forward to. This might be a swing dance or an afternoon tea.

Spending time with others improves wellbeing; carers can relax and enjoy themselves with friends and the person they care for.

Family Fun Day

£860 would pay for a fun day out for families who are caring for someone. 

We are planning a trip to an Aqua Park in September. Family activity days give all members of the family a fun experience and respite from the stresses of everyday life. Some families worry about family trips if they have a child with challenging behaviour. At a Carers in Bedfordshire event, they know they are always welcome.
