How You Can Help

There are so many ways you can get involved. Even the smallest amounts can make such a difference to us.

Are you working from home at the moment? Could you donate your bus or train fares to us? Just £6 will help our Specialist Dementia Nurses phone carers with support, help and advice. And if you donate your fares for one week, £30 will pay for a uniform for one of our hard working nurses.

Although we now have our social bubbles, it's likely to be quite a long while before the mass participation events return - could you set up your own challenge?

One of the most popular of the Coast to Coast Cycle routes is the Way of the Roses Morecambe to Bridlington, a total of 275km. Do the distance on your exercise bike - and take just as long as you like.

#

The Three Peaks can be achieved at home very simply by just climbing your stairs. Scafell Pike is 6,180 steps or 412 flights, Mount Snowden 7,120 or 475 and Ben Nevis 8,810 or 587 flights of stairs. Just remember - going downstairs doesn't count towards the total!

Now that swimming pools are opening up again, could you swim the Channel for us? The 21 mile distance is equivalent to 1,352 lengths of a 25m pool! You can take as long as you like and you won't be battling jelly fish along the way.

If you'd rather do something a bit less physical, there are many ways you can support us. Here are just a few ideas:

#

Organise a quiz night with friends and family. Get together over Zoom or one of the other party apps - you'll have a lot of fun!

#

If your Friday nights are usually spent going out with the girls, why not have a virtual cocktail evening? Take it in turns to host and make up your own cocktails - ask friends to donate what they would normally spend on a good night out.

#

And here's one for the boys. Could you get your nearest and dearest to wax your chest or legs? Ask for sponsorship - and send us the photos to prove it!

#

Or how about organising a gaming event for us? Live streams on Twitch have raised over £75 million for charity since 2012 - amazing!
