On the 17th May 2020, Care Network Cambridgeshire was 34 years old, we were established by a small group of volunteers in South Cambridgeshire who wanted to take social action. They saw the need to help local residents at times, when they were struggling, their independence and happiness threatened and they responded.
Covid-19 has brought a new threat to our local residents and communities, that will affect us for many months to come. In response, we have launched #Challenge34 a fundraising campaign to support the delivery of Covid-19 Responsive Services, which will also support our local communities in the long road of recovery that lies ahead of us. For more information about how to become involved with #Challenge34 please download the information and fundraising toolkit below.
Spread the word, join us and take part in this fundraising activity, become part of a local effort to minimise the impact of Covid-19 upon the health and wellbeing of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
