2019 saw CareTech plc’s Nasir Quraishi, Director of HR, run the London Marathon and raise over £4200 for the Foundation! Building on Nasir’s amazing efforts, we are proud to launch our new Fundraising Challenges programme, enabling anyone interested to take part in some amazing sporting challenges – and raise even more funds for the Foundation to deliver its charitable mission.
In 2019, we awarded 102 applicants over £88,000 through our small grants schemes. We want to grow those numbers and we believe you want us to do so too. So, why not be another Nasir? Why not conquer a marathon and tackle a new challenge on behalf of CareTech Foundation? Every penny you raise will support even more fantastic causes. Whether it is through Match-Funding to reward someone for their charitable spirit, a Community Grant to benefit your local area or a Staff Hardship Grant to offer help when someone needs it the most, you could help us in making that possible.
To launch our new fundraising challenges programme, we have secured spaces at the following events:
- The Vitality London 10km run on 25th May 2020 will offer an opportunity for five individuals to represent the Foundation. The race starts on The Mall and finishes on Spur Road opposite Buckingham Palace.
- The Welsh Dragon Ride 161km bike ride on 7th June 2020 will offer an opportunity for two individuals to represent the Foundation.
Please note – Entrance is free with an agreement to raise £250 plus the entrance fee for the event (£35 for the Vitality London 10k and £50 for the Welsh Dragon Ride).
The Foundation will provide a Virgin Money Giving page for your fundraising, which we will help you promote via social media (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn), as well as a free T-shirt, specific to the event you are participating in. We will be there for you on your journey from sign-up to finish line and recovery, giving you the credit and recognition you deserve.
Throughout the year, we are delighted to receive applications from so many of you for your charitable purpose, finding time in your busy work and personal lives to support those around you. Now, we ask that you support us to do more. So, planning on going for a run? Or, a bike ride to take in the scenery? We can use your help!
