Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
It is important for older adults to get some stimulation, sunshine and social interaction. That’s why care homes try to offer day trips and external social events to their residents. People living with dementia can especially benefit from the added stimulus an excursion can offer.
It provides a sense of freedom and fun that promotes a sense of well-being.Visiting a much-loved place or even having a paddle in the sea are simple pleasures but are particularly meaningful to older people, helping them to regain a sense of their lost childhood.
This is why ... staff members at The Clitheroe home will be taking part in the Pretty Muddy 5k run on the 22nd of September to raise funds to take the residents out on a day trip.
