Thank You To Our Supporters
The Lighthouse gratefully receives help from a range of funders – our supporters. Whereas volunteers are our ‘lifeblood’, our supporters are the ‘skeleton’ which holds the organisation together. Moreover, without them both, the Lighthouse could not help people with their mental health and well-being.
As shown above, The Lighthouse gratefully receives small and large grants from trusts and foundations. These funds help to pay for Drop-Ins, activities, and other services, together with our running costs.
We are always looking for help to sustain our existing support services, as we know these make a huge difference in the lives of our users.
There are many ways that your local faith group, School, Rotary, W.I. or other group can support The Lighthouse. Perhaps hold an event for Mental Health Week in October 2024. Or organise a coffee morning, afternoon tea, supper, quiz evening, sponsored walk or other event to raise funds.
Moreover, we can help with ideas, advice and fundraising materials, and we’re always grateful for your support.
We invite partnerships with Cumbria-based companies who want to support local people with their mental health and well-being. However big or small your company is, there’s a way we can work together – from employee fundraising to participating in events or selling a product or service to benefit The Lighthouse. In return, we can help raise your profile, enthuse your staff and engage your customers.
Furthermore, our work is cost-effective, and our impact on the lives of people experiencing mental health difficulties is long-lasting.
Supporting The Lighthouse not only helps local people with their mental health and well-being but also gives you the chance to join a friendly community of supporters across Cumbria. You may choose to give a one-off donation, organise an event, take part in a challenge, or become a Friend of The Lighthouse (coming soon) and receive invitations to our events. You might also like to consider leaving a gift in your will – by doing so, you keep on helping people who are struggling to cope.
However you wish to get involved, we will greatly value your support and will keep you informed about the difference you are making.
