Grow Your Tenner | Every £10 you donate will be doubled on 17 October
‘Grow Your Tenner 2017‘ is an online campaign in which Localgiving will double your donation. Your gift will help profoundly disabled people and their families to live life in abundance. Charitable donations of £10 via the donation website below could help pay for precious time in the pool, where the people we care for have the freedom and opportunity to move around more freely. This allows our residents time out of their wheelchair in warm water, reducing pain and improving their well-being.
On 17 October from 10am, The Bevern Trust will receive an additional £10 from every £10 donation you make via the Local giving page. The ‘Grow Your Tenner 2017’ campaign helps charity organizations like The Bevern Trust make a positive difference to the lives of people with profound disabilities.
Change the lives of people with profound disabilities in Sussex
Every resident in our home uses a wheelchair and needs support with all aspects of their life. The Hydropool at our home, Bevern View allows profoundly disabled people with painful muscle contractions, breathing difficulties and anxiety to experience the freedom and warmth of warm water. This calms and relaxes and means the people we care for are in less pain and can move in ways that are just not possible otherwise. Your £10 donation (doubled to £20 through the localgiving initiative) will help us raise the £5000 a year it costs to run the pool, helping people with complex needs to experience the freedom and joy of the water, giving happiness and joy.
‘Grow Your Tenner’ 2017
This year ‘Grow Your Tenner’ is much larger than previous years, a match funding for charities pot of £200,000 available to help smaller local charities. We have access to £5000 of this pot; £1000 in monthly match funding and £4000 matched in one-time donations. Whichever way you choose to donate, it will make a bigger difference to the lives of profoundly disabled people in Sussex on 17 October.
You can donate on the 17th of October from 10am until either the matchfunding pot has run out, or on the 16th of November at midday when the Grow Your Tenner campaign closes.
The Bevern Trust must raise £12,000 each month to help care for the residents at our home Bevern View in Barcombe, near Lewes. Your donation counts towards providing the best support and care, not only to our 9 residents, but to the 10 people who come to Bevern View for regular respite too.
