How can you support us?
As a registered charity, Solva Care is entirely reliant on grants and fundraising to undertake its work.
There are many ways that you can support our work – from volunteering to donating to running a marathon to becoming our Friends!
Every penny is gratefully received and goes straight back into making our community a great place to live for residents of all ages.
How to donate or fundraise for Solva Care
Donate through our Localgiving page
Solva Care has a page on Localgiving which gives people the opportunity to make a one-off donation, or a monthly amount. Your donation can be anonymous if you wish.
If you have an anniversary party or significant birthday coming up and don't want your guests to feel obliged to bring you a present you don't need, why not suggest that they make a donation to Solva Care instead?
In memorium donations
We are extremely grateful to people who ask for donations to be given to Solva Care, in lieu of funeral flowers, at such a difficult time for them.
Fundraise for us!
You could organise an event to raise money for our services such as a coffee morning or a dance. Raffles are are a great way to raise money as local businesses are often happy to donate prizes. We are always happy to chat through your ideas and publicise your event.
Be sponsored for us!
It doesn't have to be a marathon, but if you are running a 5k, shaving your head or having a bath in baked beans, think of us. It is easy to set up your own sponsorship page on Localgiving too and we will put the word out as well.
Leave a legacy
Your first thoughts when writing your will are to make sure that your loved ones are looked after. But, through your will you could also leave a gift that helps Solva Care to continue to provide our services free of charge to our local community.
Why not become a volunteer?
Why not become one of our team of 30 volunteers? Organised by our Coordinator, you can help our residents in all sorts of practical ways. From providing lifts to the local surgery, assisting with shopping, walking dogs, helping with IT or paperwork.
Whatever your skills or experience, volunteering is a way to make a real difference in our community.
And volunteering is a great way to meet people -the other volunteers as well as other residents in Solva.
“…my reason for joining is simply that I have personally experienced serious health problems for many years and, because of the help and support I have had here in Solva, it made me realise now I should do something to give back while I can.”
