LBN Walk / Run / Cycle for Carers

Fundraising for Carer Support South Lakes
raised of £250 target
by 41 supporters
We support unpaid Carers to lead a better life.


Lakeland Businesswomen’s Network are aiming to raise £250 for Carer Support South Lakes by walking, running & cycling 250 miles across the Lake District in a sponsored walk/run/cycle. We will be doing this with LBN Members walking their chosen distance, individually or in groups, which will then be added to our mileage total.

Carer Support South Lakes is a charity that supports full-time unpaid Carers of all ages from 5 to 95. These individuals go largely unnoticed, tending to slip under the radar because their role keeps them at home, out of sight and therefore, out of mind. There are 12,000 unpaid Carers across Cumbria looking after a loved one who cannot look after themselves, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition to this, it is reported that up to 40% of young carers do not disclose their situation. Many suffer physical and mental ill-health, financial difficulties, loss of freedom, isolation from friends and family and time out of education as a direct result of their caring role. 

Your donation to our fundraiser will help Carer Support South Lakes to continue to offer their regular support services, including Counselling, Sitting Service, Dementia Support Groups and Young Carer activities. 

Thank you for helping to make Caring more visible and enhancing the lives of unpaid Carers throughout the South Lakes.
