Fundraising to Help Parent Carers of Children and Young People with SEND in Wiltshire



10 year.jpg
Thank you to everyone who has so generously contributed to our Anniversary Fund to support parent carers in Wiltshire. The number of supporters who have contributed to our JustGiving page has increased to 53 and we now have £726.88 available in our Crowdfund.


We decided to set up our Anniversary Fund to mark our 10 year anniversary because we wanted to do something to support parent carers who would benefit from a little bit of help that can’t be funded by other means, for instance a small contribution towards the cost of a much needed family holiday, an SEN toy, or a little help with the cost of a day out as a family. We have been including weekly appeals in our newsletter to ask everyone registered with the WPCC and beyond to show their support by giving just £2 to this fund, and we feel the time is approaching when we need to close the appeal in preparation for opening the fund for applications.

We are humbled by the generosity of the 53 people who have so kindly contributed in an effort to make a positive difference to a few families of children and young people in Wiltshire, and we would like to say a huge thank you to you if you have donated.

This will be the last week that we appeal for contributions to our fund and we therefore make a final plea to the 2,500 plus people registered with us – can you join the 53 people who have so contributed and give £2 to our fund?

Total funds raised from our activities so far are £1,158.35 (£237.78 from the raffle at our Celebration Event, £193.69 from our Silent Auction, and a fantastic £726.88 on our JustGiving page). We need your help to increase this fund for the benefit of parent carers of children and young people in Wiltshire, every little helps; donations can be as small as £2.00 and if every person who is registered with the WPCC gave just £2.00, we would raise over £5,000!!! Please don’t miss this opportunity to play a part in contributing to the fund to benefit as many parent carers in Wiltshire as possible. Visit our [JustGiving] page now, click DONATE and type the amount you wish to give. Please share this with as many people as possible and encourage everyone you know to help make a difference; hopefully between us all we can raise even more to help parent carers of children with SEND in Wiltshire. Thank you.
