My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my fundraising page![/p][p]Did you know that there are more than 66,000 unpaid family and friend carers in East Sussex? Of these, about 10,000 live where I do in Hastings, and about 800 of these are young carers and young adult carers.[/p][p]It’s to help these carers that [url=https://www.cftc.org.uk/solicitor-london-marathon-carers]I’m currently training for the 2019 London Marathon[/url]![/p][p][url=http://www.cftc.org.uk]Care for the Carers[/url] is a local charity that has been supporting unpaid carers across East Sussex for the past 30 years. I’ve learned about this vital charity through my role at Heringtons, which is supporting Care for the Carers as its Charity partner of the Year.[/p][p]I am so proud to be their first runner to take part in the London Marathon.[/p][p]Your donation will help Care for the Carers support the increasing amount of carers who desperately need help, but do not know where to turn. [/p][p]Carers can be thrust into a caring position overnight, feel pressured to give up paid roles to look after family members, and often feel isolated, stressed and anxious and be unsure of who to turn to for support. No one should feel this way.[/p][p]But you can help…[/p][p]· Just [b]£15 [/b]provides a carer with a day out to help rebuild their wellbeing, reduce their stress and provide a valuable opportunity to socialise with other carers in the same position as them.[/p][p]· A [b]£50 [/b]donation, for example, helps to train volunteers to campaign, and raise awareness to help build a carer-friendly county.[/p][p]To see the incredible difference your donation can make not only to the carer, but also those they care for, [url=https://www.cftc.org.uk/Blogs/carers-stories/Category/carers-stories-and-writing][b]visit the Care for the Carers website[/b][/url]. THANK YOU! [/p]
