Fundraising

Caraline Grouptherapy Illustration 2

We have been in our offices in Luton since 1998 and no work has been carried out on the building since then. We now find ourselves in need of urgent funding to help us upgrade the building to ensure it is a comfortable and safe place for us to welcome our clients. It is important to us that our clients receive their treatment in bright, clean and relaxed surroundings.

Although we receive funding to support our client services this only covers our direct work with clients and does not support the day to day running of our offices, or the upkeep of our building and the IT support required to ensure our services are streamlined and efficient.

We have therefore, found ourselves urgently in need of funding to support us so that we can continue to provide a streamlined and efficient service for our clients.

The most pressing items are listed below - maybe you or somebody you know could fund an item or make a donation? All donations are gratefully received as they all add up and help us to upgrade and replace worn out items. Please be assured a donation of any amount makes a difference.

  • An update of our IT and telephone systems - this is currently estimated at £4k
  • Hand dryers for toilets £350
  • Electrical points for hand dryers £200
  • Carpet cleaning - we are delighted to announce this has been offered free of charge by Service Master in Luton - check them out on our Facebook Page! Thank you so much Dave at Service Master in Luton
  • Painting inside and outside of the building - tba
  • New therapy chairs in our therapy rooms - we are hoping to introduce a  "Sponsor a Chair" project - could this be something you could help with? £150 will buy a chair
  • Office upgrade - we need some new desks and chairs, and cupboards for the main office £2.5k would help us achieve this - if not we will battle on with what we have even though its not ideal
  • Kitchen upgrade - £1.5k would give us the funds to upgrade our out of date kitchen
  • Fridge £100 would buy us a state of the art fridge!
  • Table and chairs for kitchen £200 would provide us with the luxury of a table and chairs for staff to take a well earned break
  • New light fittings £20 per fitting throughout the building - budget price but superior performance and energy saving to boot!
  • Outdoor light fittings so that we can ensure we are running efficiently using LED's and other energy saving methods. As well as providing security for staff and clients £1k
  • A skip so that we can clear the building of old and outdated items £260
