My story

[p][b]For over thirty years Crossroads Care Surrey has been supporting unpaid Carers by providing regular respite breaks. There are over 115,000 unpaid Carers in Surrey alone. These Carers are often looking after someone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round. This takes its toll on their own wellbeing and for many people this means they can become isolated, as they are unable to leave their home due to their caring responsibilities. [/b][/p][p][b]Crossroads currently supports 2,000 Carers per year, with highly trained Carer Support Workers stepping into the Carers’ shoes so that they can have some time to themselves to take part in meaningful activities, which we can take for granted. This could be coffee with friends, attending appointments, going to an exercise class or even just doing the food shop. [/b][/p][p][b]The demand for their services outweighs the funding they receive and they are on a mission to support as many Carers in Surrey as possible. Your donations could help Crossroads provide valuable, life changing support that can keep families independent and together for longer. [/b][/p][p][b][i]90p of every £1 they receive is spent on services for Carers.[/i][/b][/p][p][b]With your help, I hope to smash my £2000 target for Crossroads Care Surrey. I am embarking on a 5 Day 50 mile trek across Iceland enduring extreme weather conditions, snowy, rocky and unstable surfaces and hopefully catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights along the way! I will be walking 6 hours a day, with temperatures set to hit as low as -5! [/b][/p][p][b][i]I NEED YOUR HELP TO RAISE THIS VALUABLE MONEY FOR SUCH A GREAT CHARITY ![/i][/b][/p][p][b]Please support me in my journey and give what you can! I will be holding fundraising events over the next few months which I’d love to see you at ![/b][/p][p][b][i]Learn more about Crossroads Care Surrey here: [/i][/b][url=http://www.crossroadscaresurrey.org.uk/][b][i]www.crossroadscaresurrey.org.uk[/i][/b][/url][/p]
