Our most recent fundraiser was run by Chris who put on a music fundraiser to raise money for Norfolk Carers Support as well as two other local charities.
At the end of May 2016 Chris hosted and DJ-ed at a music fundraising event for Norfolk Carers Support, The Louise Hamilton Centre and Citizens Advice (the three “angels”). The event included music by a local band, face painting, bouncy castle and a raffle. The fundraiser raised £310 for the work that we do supporting unpaid carers across Norfolk – thank you for your time, effort and organisation that you put into this event. It is greatly appreciated!

Thank you to Elaine, Neil, Mick and Hilary for giving your time and efforts to raise money to support carers in your local area!
In January 2016 Elaine, Neil, Mick and Hilary held a dance party at North Walsham during which they raised funds for Norfolk Carers Support. They raised the sum of £262.64 (+ gift aid) which will go towards increasing support to carers across Norfolk. We really appreciate your efforts to raise money for us, and we hope you had a fun evening in the process!
Another amazing fundraiser was Duncan, who took part in Ironman 2015 to raise money for Norfolk Carers Support – thank you Duncan!
“I’d like to sincerely thank everyone who supported and sponsored my fundraising attempt to complete Ironman France in Nice on 28th June. It was, as expected, an incredibly tough and long day, starting at 6:30am with a very crowded and brutal 2.4 mile sea swim. Immediately followed by a 112 mile bike ride up into the Southern Alps with over 6500 feet of exhausting, long steep climbs and perilous, exhilarating descents. It was an eventful ride, which included a small collision with another rider resulted in a few cuts and grazes and short stop to repair a jammed chain. Due to my feet swelling up in the intense heat (around mid 30s) and becoming too big for my cycle shoes, meant that I had to start the marathon with a number of large blisters on my feet. By about half way point during the marathon my pace had slowed from jog, to shuffle to painful limp. The lack of shade meant I was starting to suffer from heat stroke as the sun was still red hot even in the late afternoon, along with some gestro . It was at this point that I really desperately wanted to quit. I’m sure I would have done too if I hadn’t started to remember all the kind words of support and generous donations to Norfolk Carers Support that I had received over the weeks leading up to the event. Without a doubt it was this that pushed me through the final miles and hobble down the finishing chute to collect my finisher’s medal.”
