RAISING THE MONIES NEEDED TO SUPPORT OLDER PEOPLE TO MAINTAIN THEIR INDEPENDENCE

 

HOW DO WE RAISE THE MONEY?

The Trustee Board, Management Committee and Members of Staff strive each year to raise the ever increasing sum of money required to maintain and improve the quality of services provided and to meet the increase in demand.

 

WHAT IS DONE IN-HOUSE?

The staff run weekly and monthly draws, regular raffles, pop-up shops and various fun games in order to raise money. We also hold monthly ‘event days’ incorporating live musical entertainment with themed meals and decorations, charging a small fee to attend.

 

WHAT IS DONE OUTSIDE?

The ‘Friends of Newmarket Day Centre’ is a group of local people who organise and run much larger events in the local community. Events include Bridge Evenings, local cricket matches and a picnic at the races. Among many more.

 

Money raised from these events is used to repair and replace larger capital items.

 

WHAT ELSE DO WE DO?

We raise money through Public Appeals, large external raffles and requests for donations from other businesses. We also apply to Trust Giving Charities to support new initiatives and service development.
