News of recent activities organised by Crossroads Care Wokingham in support of our work.
The first Crossroads Quiz was held in February 2017. Trustees were joined by family, friends and friends of friends to raise money for the organisation.
The monies raised went towards our End of Life Care Project which offers an essential break to carers whose loved ones have a life limiting illness or cancer. Thanks to the Quiz Master kindly donating his fee, and the proceeds from a raffle, a fantastic £380.79 was raised. For every £20 of that total Crossroads can now offer an hours break to a carer in need.
Julia Tredwell, Trustee fund raiser, thanked everyone for supporting the evening. The positive feedback means we will be looking arranging another Quiz later in the year.
If you are a ‘Quiz Master’ or just interested in enjoying the delicious fish and chip supper let us know and we will be in contact when a new date has been set.

Big Breakfast for all
The Big Breakfasts, one of the carers awareness initiatives of the national Carers Trust, were held throughout the UK in October 2016 to make everyone aware how important it is to support carers who look after a family member. At the local Best Breakfast organised by Julia Tredwell, one of the Wokingham Crossroads Care Trustees, an amazing £387 was raised towards our End of Life Care Project which supports the carers of people with life limiting illness.
Thank you to everyone who generously supported the event (P.S. Julia has given advance notice that the breakfast could become an annual occasion.)
