I’m by no means a fundraiser extraordinaire, but I like to do my bit throughout the year. And like most people I look to do something at Christmas, but I’m wanting to do something different this year.
Last year I collected the bags filled with toiletries and sanitary items for homeless women, the year before I made up back packs that got sent up to Newcastle for homeless men.
This year I’m wanting to do something for carers, for various reasons. I know this encompasses family members, often children and sometimes neighbours or friends.
So, I’ve decided to hold a competition of sorts, where you can nominate yourself or a friend/relative/neighbour/work colleague and they get put forwards to win a completely free place at a dedicated Just Relax or Relax Kids session (depending on age). Anyone who doesn’t win a place will be offered the chance to attend a similar session in the New Year.
Relax Kids Darlington & Aycliffe is hosting some FREE relaxation sessions for carers this Christmas.
If you know someone who would benefit from an hour away from their usual stresses and responsibilities then you can nominate them for one of the FREE sessions*
Just Relax (adults): Friday 9th December 8-9pm
Magical adventures (under 16s): Sunday 11th December 10-11am
Both at Brafferton Village Hall, DL1 3LA
You can get a nomination form here or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Nominations close 30th November, 9pm.
Winners will be announced December 2nd at 9am and email confirmation will be sent by 12 noon.
*you can also nominate yourself!
I promise there is absolutely no catch, cost nor obligation!
