Elmbridge Road Runners raise £1,500 for children’s club
Elmbridge Road Runners wanted to do something amazing for the community in and around where they run. They decided to take on a fundraising challenge supporting our children’s club which is based in Walton-on-Thames raising a whopping £1,500. The Saturday Club is for children with disabilities and complex needs providing an opportunity to enjoy space and freedom away from home which is fun and educational – a chance to meet new friends and take part in their community. The children’s club benefits their Carers too; families have space and time outside their caring role to have a much needed break. The Club employs trained playworkers and is regulated by Ofsted.
Many thanks to everyone at Elmbridge Road Runners – you really are a terrific team of fundraisers!
We work to place all unpaid carers at the heart of all we do. Today marks Young Carers Awareness Day and we pledge to join forces with others to raise awareness of the exceptional challenges Young Carers face everyday.
A very big thank you to the West Byfleet community who have actively supported carers to have vital respite time away from caring as part of Waitrose West Byfleet Community Matters project. Over the very busy Christmas period, shoppers took time out to collectively give support to unpaid carers by giving their green tokens to support our work in their community raising an incredible £410.00.
