£320 Raised In First Few Hours For Care Packages In Blairgowrie
CareBlair’s crowdfunding campaign has been active for a little over 5 hours and they’ve already raised half of their £625 target.
We just checked our Just Giving page and we want to thank all of our 17 supporters for helping us raise £320 of our £625 target!
Each and every one of you is incredibly generous. It is lovely to see the community of Blairgowrie & Rattray coming together in this challenging time in support of our senior and disabled residents.
Carers have also expressed their thanks to CareBlair. These CareBlair Packages are saving them from needing to visit the supermarket as often. Meaning they get to spend more time providing valuable support.
We also want to thank Louise McCulloch for setting up this Coronavirus Facebook page. If it wasn’t for her, this would have been much harder to get the word out about CareBlair.
So, thank you, Louise, from the bottom of our hearts for providing this space for Blairgowrie & Rattray to come together in this challenging time. Much love to you.
All donations go right back into the community of Blairgowrie & Rattray. They help us provide Care Packages of essential groceries to seniors and disabled residents who may be stuck in their homes during the Coronavirus lockdown. Thanks for all your support. Take care out there
We can’t wait to see the support that this gives to the local, reputable groups who are working flat out during this health crisis to ensure the vulnerable members of Blairgowrie & Rattray get the support they need and the love and kindness they deserve during this challenging time.
How CareBlair Was Born
CareBlair, a local Blairgowrie & Rattray community group has recently formed to help those who are most at risk during the Coronavirus pandemic. The goal is to deliver 20-25 care packages to seniors and disabled local residents across Blairgowrie & Rattray who may be stuck in their homes due to the #coronaviruslockdown and who are in need of valuable support during this difficult time. Along with this, each resident will also receive a TV Times Magazine, a lovely easter egg, and a handwritten easter card full of well wishes! By focusing on raising awareness in a positive response by giving the public simple things that they can do, rather than feeding the fear and panic we can remain in good spirits and bring our communities closer together.
