This year, the Rural Coffee Caravan has been a constituted group for 20 years
(becoming a full charity in 2008).
During that time, we have grown from one little caravan and one part time project manager making about 15 visits a year – to 4 vehicles, 7 staff, and a multitude of volunteers making around 400* visits a year with 4 extra networks across all aspects of community.
We believe that loneliness is everyone’s business and that involving both voluntary and commercial elements of community life help to make sure no one is left behind.
Can you help us keep the wheels turning?
We have reached a critical point financially. Although we were fortunate recipients of a National Lottery grant over the next four years, this only represents a third of our income. We still must find £150k each year to survive.
It could be by individuals saving 20ps, coffee mornings, cake stalls, quizzes, progressive suppers, sponsored events, auction of promises, are just a few examples, but you may have tried and tested ideas you’ve used for other events.
With your support we are hoping to raise £20k for 20 years!
If you’d like to fundraise for us either as an individual or as a group, please let us know by leaving your details with us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling us on 01379 855338.
