Can you sponsor us?

As a voluntary community organisation we need funding, donations and helpers so that we can continue to work to provide support to families and adults. If you are able to provide any of the following support please get in touch:

  • Continued funding, especially for core costs.
  • Project funding for upgrading I.T. equipment.
  • More volunteers are always welcome – either hands-on during after school activities, in school holidays, Friday evenings for Café clear-up, or to serve on the Management Committee – we especially need a treasurer.
  • Helpers at our one-off events, such as our annual Easter Fayre.
  • Ask us about The Bus Stop Club ‘Supporter’s Club’ to give individual donations.
  • We need befrienders to support our CAP centre this year and into next year.

We appreciate all the help that we get either financially or through volunteers giving their time in order for us to continue offering our range of community support activities.
