Two of our supporters, Sara and Karen, are hosting a coffee morning to boost their fundraising efforts for the Great North Run in September.

The coffee morning takes place at Karen’s house on Saturday 17 August from 10am to 12.30pm.

Sara and Karen are raising funds for both Care for Kids North Devon and North Devon Hospice.

Please go along to their event, eat cake or bring cake! There will also be a raffle and book sale.

In July both Karen and Sara took part in the Care for Kids Barnstaple 10k, so this isn’t their first running event. The Great North Run is a 13.1 mile route from Newcastle City Centre to the coast in South Shields. It takes place on Sunday 8 September and the BBC is broadcasting the event live. We will be watching out for Karen and Sara on the big screen!

Have you thought about holding your own event to raise funds for our charity? A coffee morning or cake sale is an easy and enjoyable way to fundraise. We can help you with posters and promotion of your event and provide collection buckets. Take a look at our fundraising page for more information.

Lastly, we have charity spaces at regular sporting events, including the Great North Run and Ride London. Get in touch with us if you are interested in taking on a sporting challenge on our behalf.
