*Charity of the Year*

Last week I wrote about wanting to make a difference and how I wanted to have a Charity that I would fundraise for for a year doing various things.

I put the feelers out on twitter for ideas. Ideally I wanted to support a smaller charity. All charities need people to fundraise for them, but I felt smaller charities need more help than the larger ones. I also thought it would be nice to support a local charity.

Then it occurred to me. There is a local charity I have used myself the past few years for help and support….and they could do with mine.

So, I would like to introduce you to my *Charity of the Year*


Carers Support Spelthorne are an independent charity working with and for Carers and Parent Carers in the borough of Spelthorne.

Their services are free to use and they’ll just be there to listen, to offer advice, help with any forms you need to fill and run support groups.

They also arrange days out and activities for Carers and the people they care for.

Without fundraising this amazing Charity wouldn’t be able to continue some of the great support they do.

Which is why I want to help them. I can’t promise lots of money, but I will do my best!

I hope to come up with a few ideas, and I’ll join in with the fundraising events that CSS already have plans!

Let’s do this & raise some money for a great charity!!!

    Really love this idea of having a Charity of the Year to support. Maybe it’s something we’ll consider too.

    I also think that this is a really good idea. I would love to hear more about your fund raising ideas and the very best of luck with it.
