There are so many ways to get involved and support LifeCare’s work
By donating, fundraising or volunteering your time and talents, you’ll be helping us provide great-quality care to older people and those living with dementia across Edinburgh.
Fundraise for LifeCare and you’ll be at the heart of our first-rate care and companionship.
LifeCare requires £200,000 each year to keep on doing our good work. Our donors, fundraisers and volunteers play a huge part in keeping our services running.
From all of us at LifeCare, and from those we help care for, a huge and heartfelt thank you.
When it comes to fundraising, everyone has a talent they can put to good use.
Maybe you’re a fantastic baker. Bake sales and coffee mornings are a terrific way of raising funds. Or why not host a bake-off challenge for colleagues and friends?
Baking not your thing? No problem. There’s a lot more ways to help and get involved with LifeCare.
Feeling fit? Why not get out in the great outdoors and grab these sponsorship ideas:
Cycling Take to the saddle and keep fit while you fundraise
Marathons and fun runs These are a real favourite here at LifeCare
Mountain-climbing Scotland offers almost 300 peaks to conquer
From abseiling to zip wiring, there are tons of challenges out there. So, what are you waiting for?
At LifeCare, we believe that raising loads of funds should also be loads of fun. Here are some great ideas we’ve got to know:
Five-a-side tournaments Or your sport of choice from netball to golf, hockey to mini Olympics and more
Race nights Always a winner of an evening
Wine-tasting A sophisticated event that gets people together
Away from the crowd, there are lots of other ways to get involved:
Healthy pledges Why not walk or cycle to school or work for a week?
Sponsored reads Terrific for kids
Sponsored silences A classic fundraiser that makes lots of cash – and very little noise
Why not give clothes, toys, DVDs and books a new home with a jumble sale, auction or raffle? You can go even further by combining your sale with a coffee morning.
In particular, we will be looking for a Café Host at CaféLife, our brilliant community café in Stockbridge. Why not give it a shot?
Make a direct difference when you lend us your time, skills and enthusiasm. We welcome all volunteers and if you are job seeking we would love to help you to build your confidence and add to your CV.
