FUNDRAISING BY CROSSROADS CARE WOKINGHAM

Thanks to the hard work of Julia Tredwell, our Fundraising Trustee, two further events have been held to raise much-needed funds for our work.

  • As part of the Carers Trust’s Big Breakfast carers awareness initiatives in November 2018, we held our own Best Breakfast, raising £472 towards our End of Life Care Project.
  • The Christmas Raffle 2017 raised £114 to offer respite breaks to those most in need.

Our second Crossroads Quiz, held at Sand Martins Golf Club on 20th April 2018  raised a wonderful £610 helping us to provide much-needed breaks to local carers looking after someone with a life-limiting illness.
