The Mayor of Barnstaple, Councillor Alan Rennes, has chosen us as his charity of the year.
As the Mayor’s usual fundraising events aren’t possible in the current climate, he will be taking his fundraising online in a series of virtual events. Care for Kids will be the lucky recipient of the Mayor’s fundraising efforts.
Follow Barnstaple Town Council or Care for Kids North Devon on Facebook. Get involved with the Mayor’s upcoming fundraising events.
Every year we help 15-20 North Devon families who have a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Many families struggle to meet the costs of visiting specialist hospital appointments. Therefore, we provide each family with an £800 grant to help pay for travel, living costs and loss of earnings. We also support improvement projects at the Caroline Thorpe children’s ward at North Devon District Hospital.
