2021 – Fabulous fundraising
Despite the challenges of fundraising during a pandemic our amazing supporters are always ready to think of new and exciting ways to raise funds to help those in need.
Through 2021 we knew it was vital that we continued to raise the funds needed to provide our services. More people than ever before need our help and Covid restrictions continue to disrupt events making planning a particular challenge.
Luckily our amazing supporters are always ready to think of new and exciting ways to raise funds to help those in need.
We know the future continues to be challenging, but with supporters like these, and funders who have shown how much they value the work we do, we are hopeful we can cover the distance.
Cruse helped me through a difficult time in my life. I contacted Cruse and a volunteer helped me massively so, I wanted to give something back. I took on the Everesting Bike Challenge. 25.5 hours on my bike up and down a hill with the equivalent reach of 29,029 feet. I raised just over £1500 for Cruse, to help anyone in a situation like me.
Holly came to Cruse for support after suddenly losing her mum. Holly’s experience of loss is shared by many people. We were able to help her because our volunteers know what grief feels like, how it affects people, and how to offer the support that can make a difference.
Holly decided to give something back to Cruse and in 2019 organised a four Relay Teams made up of colleagues, friends and family to run the Belfast City Marathon in aid of Cruse. Holly continued with her running and last year, Holly completed the London Marathon and raised over £5,000 for Cruse!
Death can be such an awkward conversation, people don't want to upset you. So when I came to Cruse it was nice because I knew it was someone who didn't feel awkward talking about death and would ask the questions that other people are too scared to ask.
