Organising a fundraising event can be one of the most rewarding, worthwhile and fun things you will ever do. No matter how much you raise, you can be sure that you are helping us to make a real difference to thousands of carers in desperate need of support. Here are just a few ideas of what you could do to raise funds for us:
- Organise a coffee morning at your local community centre, school, church or home.
- Non-uniform school day or casual dress day at the office.
- Organise a cake sale, or boot sale.
- Organise a quiz night at your local pub.

Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100
Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 starts in the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route recently made famous by the world’s best cyclists, it will be a truly spectacular event for all involved. The route of the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 is perfect for both club and recreational cyclists. Slower cyclists can enjoy a challenging ride while faster riders will relish the opportunity to pit themselves against the country’s top amateurs. As well as the personal challenge of completing the route, participants’ involvement will also benefit good causes such as Carers Lewisham. You can take part of this event which is starting to become a London tradition, while helping us raise much needed funds. For more information on the route visit this link. To register please fill in the application form and terms and conditions and send it back to Carers Lewisham. Places will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
