Our Fundraising

We’re delighted to announce that the CG100 campaign has reached its £50,000 target! 

Thank you to everyone who took part.  From running and walking, cake making (and eating!) to singing and fortune telling to name but a few, it’s fair to say our fundraisers have left no stone unturned to raise money, as you can see from our photo board below!

The £50,000 raised will be used to fund innovative and exciting community development projects tackling social isolation and loneliness throughout Scotland.  Examples include:

  • Supporting the Social Committee in Falkirk, a group of people with complex disabilities to organise a series of events for people to get together with old and new friends.
  • Working with our team in North East Glasgow organising a series of fun events to bring together people at risk of isolation to make connections and to explore mutual interests together.
  • Community Compass, a social prescribing project based in Edinburgh which helps link isolated people with their communities. 

Whilst we’re sad to say goodbye to the CG 100, we’re very excited for the launch of our new 2018 fundraising campaign which is coming soon. So join ‘Team Carr Gomm’ in 2018 tackling social isolation and loneliness.  Our new Fundraising Calendar is coming soon with lots of ways to get involved in the 2018 campaign. 

Events coming up soon include Inverness Half Marathon and 5K fun Run on 11 March and the Glasgow Kiltwalk on 29 April.

To take part in either of these events, just contact the Fundraising Team on fundraising@carrgomm.org.  Free charity places are available for the Glasgow Kiltwalk.  But don’t delay they’re selling out fast!
