Fundraising


We have a number of fundraising initiatives to help raise funds for Lanarkshire Carer Centre, with the proceeds going towards ongoing support for carers in Lanarkshire. 

You can find details of the different fundraising initiatives we have below:

SoundRoutes Singers

SoundRoutes have kindly chosen Lanarkshire Carers Centre as their nominated charity, working in partnership with us to raise funds for the centre.

SoundRoutes Singers are one choir spread over seven locations in central Scotland. They sing a collection of folk, pop, roots, rock, world and gospel music. 

For more information, please visit the SoundRoutes website: www.soundroutessingers.com 


If you would like to get involved and fundraise for Lanarkshire Carers Centre, please call us on 01698 428090.

If you're shopping why not use Amazon Smile and nominate Lanarkshire Carers Centre as your chosen charity and then just shop as normal. The Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of all eligible purchases.

So, if you're an Amazon shopper, remember to use our direct link: smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/SC029160 and select Lanarkshire Carers Centre the next time you're shopping.

This is a really easy way for you to make a donation to Lanarkshire Carers Centre when making planned purchases.

As a charity, we rely on the kindness and generosity of the many individuals and organisations who help support us. No matter how large or small the amount, we are always thankful for your support.

The 50/50 Club is a fundraising intiative that enables its members to win a cash prize every month whilst contributing to the future success fo Lanarkshire Carers Centre.


 

How does it work?

£1 is entered into a draw each month for each active member. Half of the draw fund is donated to the centre and the other half is paid to the prize winner. For example:

  • Number of active members in month: 100 
  • Amount of money entered into monthly draw: £100
  • Amount donated to centre: £50
  • Prize winner receives: £50

The prize amount is dependent on the number of active members each month, so the more active members there are, the greater the prize amount!


 

How much does it cost?

It costs just £12 to join the 50/50 Club. This entitles each member to 1 entry a month over a 12 month period.
