Fundraising

Care funding does not cover the full costs of people achieving their dreams, contributing as equal citizens and fulfilling their potential. Three Cs funds unfunded activities and unfunded people from investment income, reserves and fundraising. Fundraising includes personal donations, sponsored events and grants and all money raised is spent on social inclusion or prevention and self-health activities.

Social inclusion means jobs, volunteering, learning, a social life, participation in democracy and speaking out. Prevention and self-health means activity which promotes physical health and well-being and being more in control of your health. It also means avoiding or delaying the need for acute mental and physical health services or higher levels of care.

If you choose to donate, raise money or make a grant to Three Cs, we promise you that every penny will be spent on charitable activities which are not funded through other sources.

Jeev running the Edinburgh Marathon for Three Cs

We are delighted to announce that Jeev Sahoo, one of our newest Trustees, is running the Edinburgh Marathon on 27th May 2018 to raise money for Three Cs. Jeev has already started training for the big day and says he is motivated by the `special and positive difference’ that Three Cs makes to people’s lives.

Jeev credits his dog for inspiring his love of running as a young boy, but a good few decades passed before he rediscovered its joys around nine years ago. Since then, despite some ups and downs, he has successfully completed half-marathons and is now up to what he calls `the very big challenge’ of running his first full marathon.

You can support Jeev by visiting his JustGiving page Jeev for Three Cs. Follow his progress at www.jeev.in and find out why he is running a marathon for Three Cs on YouTube https://bit.ly/Jeev3CRun. “More than the physical part, running helped me overcome emotional and personal issues”. Jeev Sahoo

Alice running the London Marathon for Three Cs

One of our valued volunteers, Alice Warley, took up the challenge of running the 2016 London Marathon but sadly had to pull due to injury. Thankfully she is fit and healthy and will be running in the 2017 London Marathon

Alice has and still is raising money for Three Cs. The money will be used to pay for activities for people who are not funded.

Alice had been volunteering with us for over a year and enjoyed spending time with her new friend Diane doing things that Diane loves.

Christmas Carol Singers

On the day before Christmas Eve, staff, people we support and friends and family sang `merrily on high’ to raise funds for Three Cs charity. The generous donations recieved from Eltham High Street shoppers by our carol singers will be used to fund social and holiday activities for people with learning disabilities and mental health challenges who would otherwise be excluded.

Three Cs 10k Step Challenge

In September 2016, we raised money by walking 10,000 steps for 10 consecutive days. Research shows that walking 10,000 steps a day will significantly improve your health. Walking regularly can help you build stamina, burn calories and improve the health of your heart. We want to tap into this simple way of improving health and raise money to help pay for unfunded and underfunded activities for our members at the same time. The People we support undertook to wear a pedometer and walk 10,000 steps every day for 10 days, finishing with a group walk and afternoon tea at Crossways on Saturday 20 September. If you would like to donate or encourage friends and contacts to donate, please go to our JustGiving web page.

Team Three Cs Rides Again

Our team of 10 riders cycled 90km in the summer of 2015 from London to Brighton for Three Cs. You can still sponsor the team buy going to the JustGiving web page.
