Fundraising events

The income we receive from donations and fundraising events organised by our supporters is vital to the work we do, and we also organise some events ourselves. These are listed on our calendar and advertised in our e-bulletins and What’s On.

We are always looking for more fun ways to fundraise, and if you have an idea for a fundraising event please get in touch.

Upcoming events:

Friday 10th November: Supernova at the Kelpies 

4 of Carers Link staff are taking part in Supernova at the Kelpies, and will be running/ walking 5K at night. In our new, brightly coloured fleeces we should be easy to spot in the dark. Please sponsor us and help us meet our target of £400.

Past fundraising events include:

Some started at our offices and walked 13 miles, and for others the family friendly walk of 3.5 miles started in Bishopbriggs. The sun shone. There was lots of chat, and the total raised was an amazing £17,000.
