Are you aged between 5 and 25?

‘Donate & Double’ with #Giveme5 on Wednesday 25th February!

Donate to the Carers’ Centre on 25th February and your donation could be doubled through Local Giving’s #GiveMe5 campaign.

For 1 day only, Local Giving will match 1000 £5 donations made through their website. This means if you donate £5 on 25th February, this could be doubled into a £10 donation at no extra cost to you.

A £5 donation could make all the difference in our work helping unpaid carers who willingly give their time and energy, day after day, to look after someone they love and care for. It can be stressful, exhausting and lonely, with little if any chance of a break.

But you can help. Donate £5 on 25th February and help us give carers the time and space they so desperately need.

Carers’ like Rosie, who looks after her husband Den.

“I was struggling to care for Den, who has Alzheimer’s disease. I felt completely isolated and lonely. The Carers’ Centre gave me the opportunity to relax and have time just for me. It was just what I needed. Without it, I don’t know if I would have coped.” – Rosie C.

The Carers’ Centre is a place where carers can find time for themselves. Time to make friends and feel less isolated. Time to learn new skills, look after their health, talk about their worries, have a cup of tea, do some gardening. Simple things you and I take for granted. But for carers, it’s the difference between coping and struggling.

Can you spare £5 to help carers find some time for themselves? If so, Give Us £5 on 25th February for a chance to turn your £5 into £10!

The #GiveMe5 campaign runs from 00:00 – 23:59 on Wednesday 25th February. You can give as many times as you want but you must give £5 each time to be in with a chance to have your donation doubled. So get ready to click here, donate & double!
