Story

I had no plans to raise money for a charitable cause this year...

If I'm honest, I didn't want the added stress of raising money on top of training for a 100 mile bike ride, 2 x 50k runs and another 60 mile bike ride.. But when I met the Founders of The Bee Tree Community, I was compelled to help in some way. I was just so struck by what they are doing that I wanted to help them raise awareness and raise funds.

The Bee Tree Community is an Online Community Centre created by Debbie Bentley and Clare Watson. Their Mission is to tackle social isolation and exclusion by creating a joyful, thriving community providing online classes/sessions and support to those members of the community that are lonely and isolated.

There are nine million lonely people in the UK. You may not see them, but they are there. They were once like you and me, until their world took an unexpected turn and knocked their confidence/restricted them. Their opportunity to socialise, find work, proactively access healthcare and social care, keep active or try new things is dramatically reduced which has a huge impact on their physical and mental health and well being.

Four million of them are older people. Many older people find constant loneliness the hardest to overcome. They lack the friendship and support we all thrive on and Bee Tree has created an online community for people to access the support they so dearly need.

Bee Tree is a Start-Up, and the Founders Clare and Debbie are funding this Community Interest Company themselves at present. They can’t compete with the big charities, so they need people like you and me to help them.

Will you help us?

I will do the hard work! Did I mention I’m doing a 100 mile bike ride, 2 x 50k runs and ANOTHER 60 mile bike ride in the space of 4 months, starting in August?

If you could help us raise £5000, this will not only help with the running costs of Bee Tree, but it will also help Debbie and Clare to set up The Bee Tree Community's free Befriending Service. This will offer one to one contact (online or telephone) for their members who aren't able to come to sessions and who just want a chat to another person. I, Debbie and Clare would be eternally grateful for any support you could give us.

You can visit The Bee Tree Community CIC and find out more about them/their story/register as a member on their Website

Thank you so much,

Tara x

    You are taking on some amazing challenges. (I don’t know how your ride a bike for that distance. I moan after a few yards). And raising money for a really good cause. You are amazing. X
