Here are a few ways which may be suitable for you or your workplace:
 
Hold a 'dress down' day for staff asking for a small donation in return
 
Organise a cake and bake sale - a lunchtime treat!
 
Get your friends together for a coffee morning. Some home baked cakes and a raffle help make this a winning event.
 
Involve your local sports club,social group or pub and hold a quiz night.
 
Donate quality goods that we can sell on Ebay.

Any money raised or donated to us, big or small, is extremely valuable to us. Here is how you could make a difference:
 
£1.50 will pay for us to send a handwritten birthday card with a personal message to someone who lives alone and dosen't have any close family or friends.
 
£30 could provide a winter warmth parcel to an older person who is struggling to keep warm. A flask, fleecy blanket,socks and a wind up torch can make a big difference.
 
£100 buys a set of board games for one of our Day Clubs.
£250 covers the cost of a friendly telephone call each week to a housebound older person.
 
£1,000 covers our costs to take 40 people on a day trip to the coast.
 
£5,000 provides a 12 month programme of entertainment and trips for 140 people at our Day Clubs.
 
£15,000 will run a specialist club for one year for people with dementia.
