Throughout the year many incredible people raise money for carers from holding bake sales to taking on a personal challenge.

Thank you to our wonderful fundraisers!

Whatever you do, you never cease to amaze us with your generosity and determination!

A story to tell your friends and grandchildren

Fundraising events and challenges not only help make a difference to carers, but also the lives of those taking part – leaving them with a story to tell. 

Richard and Edward Westropp’s epic cycle ride

Massive congratulations to 67-year-old Richard Westropp and his son Edward, who last year cycled the 940 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats in just ten days, raising almost £5,000 for Carers Trust.

Following this achievement, two of their friends then ran the Berlin Marathon, also raising money for Carers Trust!

To date, along with friends, family and loyal supporters, the Westropp’s have raised almost £200,000 for the Peter Westropp Memorial Trust which fundraises solely for Carers Trust. Their dedication has meant even more carers in the UK have received support, help and advice they otherwise may not have had.

Paul and Sophie Howe trek the Pyrenees

And a big thank you to father and daughter team Paul and Sophie Howe, who along with a group of friends, walked the 60km Freedom Trail across the Pyrenees in July last year. They raised an amazing £2,725 for Carers Trust.
