Thank you for your support so far

The last couple of months have been very challenging for everyone, we hope you are coping in lockdown and staying safe.

As a small charity we've had to adapt to the current circumstances and it's been tough. We rely on donations, fundraising and sponsorship of events to support North Devon families. 
We've been blown away by the generosity of our community and are truly grateful for your continued support. We've received over £2,000 in donations to our emergency appeal so far. It means the world to our charity and your donations will also mean the world to local families,who are coming to terms with having a child diagnosed with a life threatening illness.

So, thank you if you've donated to our emergency appeal, taken part in one of our online events or taken on a fundraising challenge for us. We wouldn't be here without you.

Read on to find out what we've been up to and how you can get involved.

Online auctions in May

Take part in one of our charity auctions on Facebook throughout May.

Each Friday, we'll be opening an auction, with lots donated by local North Devon businesses. Place your bids on any of the items and the highest bid received by the end of Sunday will win.

Place your bids in the comments section of each item. You can place multiple bids if you are outbid by someone else. Each auction will launch at 9am on the Friday and close at 9pm on the Sunday, so you will have a whole weekend to bid for your favourite item. You must pay for your item using this Virgin Money Giving campaign by 9pm on the following Monday.
We have some fantastic prizes, including meals at local restaurants, days out, exercise classes and massage treatments.

Some sad news

It is with a heavy heart that we announce our decision to cancel the Care for Kids Barnstaple 10k 2020.

The event will now take place on 4 July 2021. We have emailed all the runners signed up to take part. Places will be transferred to the revised date. If you don't receive an email, or have any questions, please message us.

As you can imagine, this is normally our biggest fundraising event of the year so cancelling it is a big loss to our charity. We hope to put on a Virtual 10k event in its place, so watch this space!
