Why we need your help

Help make Christmas a happy time for adults & children with learning disabilities


At East Kent Mencap we want the festive season to be a time for friends and celebration, where no one feels lonely or left out just because they have a learning disability. 


This year we plan to share the Christmas spirit with over 200 adults and children with learning disabilities at parties, trips and gifts. A donation to our Christmas Activities Fund will ensure everyone has a really great time.


Thank you all so much for your donations so far: whether you have hit the donate button below, brought along a raffle prize to our offices or donated your time as a volunteer, you are making a big difference already!


*UPDATE* Riggers Workwear, Margate have got the ball rolling with a donation of £100 - courtesy of the Manager's ukulele band | Redline Clothing are donating their time and materials supporting our groups design their own printed materials | HC Therapies have donated a reflexology voucher towards our Thanet panto | Thank you to Jo at Mrs T's Beauty Aesthetics for supporting our sponsored wax | Angela at AD Therapies who will be holding free mini-massage treatments | CEO Jason Gerlack for his Christmas card campaign | Fitstart, Ramsgate Fitness group who are taking up a sponsored fitness challenge | Hornby for their donation of tour tickets | Sainsbury’s at Westwood Cross for over £180 in raffle prizes| - Incredible!

*UPDATE* On Tuesday 29th November, we took part in #givingtuesday along with clients, supporters and local businesses reminding everyone it’s good to give - we had a great day and really got the appeal rolling!

*UPDATE* Due to the support we have been receiving from fabulous fundraisers & delightful donors we have decided to increase our fundraising target to £750 to see if we can make this our best Christmas appeal yet!
