We did it!
We’re delighted to announce that the CG100 campaign has reached its £50,000 target!
To say we’re thrilled is an understatement, and it’s all thanks to the contributions of every single person who took part in the campaign! Hundreds of fantastic fundraisers backed by many, many more people have taken the campaign to their hearts and we couldn’t be more grateful.
The £50,000 raised will be used to fund innovative and exciting community development projects tackling social isolation and loneliness throughout Scotland. Examples include:
- Supporting the Social Committee in Falkirk, a group of people with complex disabilities to organise a series of events for people to get together with old and new friends.
- Working with our team in North East Glasgow organising a series of fun events to bring together people at risk of isolation to make connections and to explore mutual interests together.
- Community Compass, a social prescribing project based in Craigmilllar in Edinburgh which helps link isolated people with their communities. Click here to hear from people in their own words how Community Compass has helped them.
Whilst we’re sad to say goodbye to the CG 100, we’re very excited for the launch of our new 2018 fundraising campaign. So join ‘Team Carr Gomm’ in 2018 tackling social isolation and loneliness throughout Scotland.
