Whether you donate £5 or £50 a month it all helps.
At our home Bevern View, we care for some of the most vulnerable people in Sussex who live with profound disabilities.
Your donation can help us provide a life-changing short break to a specially adapted bungalow, pain reducing hydrotherapy sessions or transport to inclusive community events, college and day trips to Brighton.
If you’ve decided to fundraise for The Bevern Trust and aren’t sure how you want to raise the money, we have a few fundraising event ideas to help inspire you:
Why not hold your own quiz night with family and friends? Head to your local pub or village hall and either write your own quiz or find a ready-made one online. Find an enthusiastic quiz master and charge a donation fee for participating; it’s a fun way to fundraise! You could even get donations for drinks and snacks if you can get them donated.
Are you a star baker, or just love eating cake? Either way, a quick and simple way to fundraise for The Bevern Trust is by holding a bake sale. Do it at home, at work, at school or in your place of worship: wherever you like!
If you’re approaching a big anniversary or birthday, why not throw a party to celebrate while fundraising for us? You invite the guests and we’ll provide the collection tins and posters you need. You could even ask for donations instead of gifts and cards to make that extra bit of difference.
If you have a garden you’re most proud of (no matter how big or small), why not open your gates to the public so they too can enjoy your beautiful outdoor space? If you have an interesting or unique garden, we want to hear from you!
This could be the year you’ve decided to do something different, to achieve a personal milestone or goal for a special occasion or even a Birthday that defines this year for you. As a disability charity, we are inspired daily by the physical and emotional challenges that our residents, their families and supporters regularly face and live with every day.
Many people with a profound disability are marginalised in every area of society. They can be ignored, overlooked and excluded. But you can help change their life by leaving a gift to The Bevern Trust in your Will.
If you do already have a will and want to leave a gift to The Bevern Trust, contact your solicitor and let them know your intentions. You can work with them either to (a) make a new will or (b) a shorter and less expensive “codicil”.
If you haven’t already made a will you can make one and leave a gift of a specific amount of money or a proportion of your estate to us and other charities. Once your family and friends are catered for, anything you can provide us will make a huge difference to our work.
Did you know that people who leave more than 10% of their estate to charity receive inheritance tax benefits?
Success for The Bevern Trust means that through care we have given people with profound learning difficulties every opportunity to get more from life.
You, your colleagues and customers will love the experience of supporting The Bevern Trust, and we will do everything we can to make it as fun and successful as possible.
We have worked with large national employers, independent local businesses and every type of business in between, so you can be sure your support will make a positive difference.
We have worked with a number of groups around Lewes, Uckfield and East Sussex and are inspired by their support and generosity. Fundraising and volunteering for The Bevern Trust is great fun and you can see the difference you make to the lives of the people we care for for yourself.
