We have two Community Fundraisers at Carers Bucks whose role it is to raise vital funds for Carers Bucks to enable us to carry out the work that we do supporting carers.  We organise a variety of fundraising events and activities throughout the year from bucket collections in supermarkets to auctions.

Carers Bucks also relies on both donations and practical help to carry out our work, and we are very grateful to the funding bodies who have supported us and continue to do so, but we always need more help to raise funds to make the lives of adult and young carers a little easier.

If you would like to help raise funds for Carers Bucks, please let us know and we will work with you however we can to make it a success. If you need some ideas why not visit our A-Z of fundraising ideas for some inspiration!

£50 could go towards providing a carer with an activity day to give them a break from their caring role
