Give in celebration

Give in celebration

If you have an upcoming celebration, whether that’s a birthday, anniversary, wedding, or something else, then you could invite your friends and family to make a donation to Caring Together Charity instead of giving you a present. These gifted donations will come straight to us and will be used to support unpaid carers across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, and Norfolk. It’s a way to make a special occasion even more special!

Simply fill out our online form and we’ll do the rest!

How it works

Option 1 – online web page

  1. Fill out our ‘Give in celebration’ online form below.
  2. We’ll set up a special web page for you, and give you your own website link to share with your friends and family.
  3. Share the link and your loved ones will be able to make a gifted donation, easily and safely. They can also leave you a greeting or message for your special day.
  4. We’ll be in touch after your celebration has finished, with a letter and certificate with your total collected amount.

We partner with MuchLoved, a platform used to create special celebration pages for you to collect your gifts. It’s free and easy to use. All the gifted donations you receive will go towards ensuring that we can continue to be there for unpaid carers.

Option 2 – inviting your loved ones to celebrate this way

You could simply let your loved ones know that you are asking for donations instead of gifts. You could say:

“Please don’t bring/send a present. But if you would like to, you can make a donation to a charity that is special to us – Caring Together Charity. Make your cheque payable to ‘Caring Together’ and send/give it to us and we will forward it on to the charity.”

You can then download and print our paying in slip and send it to us along with the donations. Alternatively, let us know if you’d like us to send the slips to you, along with a freepost envelope.

 

Help young carers like Sofia

Sofia, aged 10, is a young carer and helps care for her mum Becky who suffers from PoTS, SVT, Alison’s disease and fibromyalgia, which can be extremely debilitating. Sofia has been caring for her mum since the age of two, and at the age of three she saved her mum’s life by calling 999 after she fainted whilst painting. Sofia was on the phone for 45 minutes whilst waiting for the ambulance, and managed to direct them to their home. Without Sofia, her mum Becky might not be here today. Sofia also helps with the household chores, cooking, and cleaning.

Sofia enjoys breaks from her caring responsibilities by attending Caring Together’s young carer trips, which provide breaks for young carers, giving them the opportunity to learn new skills and socialise with other young carers. Sofia says she enjoys the trips, and it’s nice ‘having a day of just playing around’.

“If Sofia hadn’t known what to do, I might not be here today”

 

By cebrating your occasion with us, you can help us to continue being there for young carers like Sofia. Every gift made will help to ensure that no unpaid carer is left in crisis, isolated, or struggling alone.
