Caraway fully relies on grants and donations to financially support the work we do.

Can you help to raise money towards the spiritual care
of Older People in our City?

fundraising

If you would like to organise something with us in mind, we would love to hear from you! Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Enter a sporting event and raise sponsorship – this could be jogging, swimming, mudrunning – whatever takes your fancy!
  • A sponsored silence, litter pick, knittathon
  • Hold a Coffee Morning or a Bake Sale
  • Organise a games event – Bingo, Beetle Drive, Bridge (it doesn’t have to start with B!)
  • Hold a Raffle, or a simple ‘How many Sweeties are in the Jar’ game

Or –

  • do you have experience with applying to grant giving bodies? There is funding available for charities working alongside Older People and we would love to have some help with this.

We’ve got many more ideas, and we’d love to hear yours, so please contact us if you would like to get involved with helping us raise funds.

Testimonials

You do see your friends and neighbours, all being brought in. It’s a relaxed atmosphere . It means you do feel included in the church family. We’re a very close family and have friends of friends of friends, but the young people, they don’t have anybody . It continued church as I haven’t been so well lately after a fall. My balance is poor and my voice isn’t what it used to be, and I love to sing. I always knew when it was time to get up as I could hear Grandma in the kitchen, she sang

I do enjoy all of it. I think the service at the start is good. I know some people find the little figures a bit patronising, but the discussions are good and it's good to meet up with friends and it's good to see all the displays. It does make you think. It’s the companionship and the friendliness. It’s just a pleasant few hours really. I think it’s nice to be using the church for a truly worshipping session.

Why do you come as a volunteer to help with events like Vintage Adventure in church?  …Well, as I’m getting older, I realise that for an awful lot of the elderly, they’ve not got very long left to get to know the lord So I think this generation is the most important ministry. If you’re in with students and you mess it up, they’ve got a whole lifetime when they can met somebody who will correct it. We haven’t got that luxury so this is a very important ministry and I just want to do my little bit.

I come to Vintage Adventure because , being a single person, it’s good to come to places where I meet people and I think in a big church, any groups, be it for young or old to meet people on a much smaller scale is really important like homegroups  I think it is very good for the older generation to be catered for because they have certain emphases.
