The challenging past months of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown has had an enormous financial impact on the social care charity and they urgently need to raise funds to continue supporting people with disabilities, complex needs and those on the autism spectrum.
The Spooky Halloween 5K is the first in a series of fun virtual events to raise funds for the charity as it launches the #UnlockingCare campaign to enable it to continue providing desperately needed services such as round-the-clock care, virtual activity and counselling sessions and a Live Chat helpline.
So why not get fit, have fun and help improve the lives of people with disabilities, learning needs and autism?!
- Registration fee: adults: £10, children 5-15: £5; under 5s free
- Set up your own fundraising page and ask all your friends to sponsor you
- All participants will receive a Halloween Spooky 5K Certificate and Aspens keyring
