Race nights, choir evenings and bee hunts to end loneliness…

We’re still counting the coins and adding the total together but we wanted to say a huge thank you to all of the teams who participated in our 2018 Accumulator Challenge! Our teams hugely varied from corporate teams, to individual fundraisers getting help from friends and family and each and every person involved has dedicated time, energy and resource to make their fundraising a success.

As a small local charity we are reliant on grants and local community support and fundraising to keep operating. Not only have this years’ teams helped to raise £1000s to contribute towards our running costs, they have also been out in the community, sporting our T-shirts and sharing our leaflets and raising awareness to help us reach more isolated and lonely older people whose lives can really be changed with a new friend from Cyril Flint Befrienders.

We’ve loved hearing about (and attending!) quiz nights, choir evenings, race nights, book sales, bee hunts, jumble sales, craft shops and more! It’s been brilliant seeing the new and creative ways each team has come up with to fundraise and been brilliant to be able to include our volunteers and befriendees along the way! We can’t thank each team enough and look forward to a night of celebration later this month to thank each person involved and announce some special prize winners!
