St Catherine’s Hospice

We are competing in the Inflatable UK 5K event on 18th June 2022 and raising funds to sponsor a day (costing £8,000) for Saint Catherine’s Hospice (Scarborough)

St Catherine’s Hospice was established in 1981, offering care for individuals with terminal illness and their families, not only onsite in Scarborough but also in people’s homes within an area of North Yorkshire, covering more than 1,600 square miles. St Catherine’s have become known as a provider of excellence for palliative care, being rated as ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission. Every 24 hours nurses, doctors, counsellors, social workers, and therapists provide outstanding care for people in our local community and at their In-Patient Unit who are living with terminal illness. Therefore, each year, St Catherine’s Hospice need to raise a total of £5million to fund patient care. This year, we will be raising funds to help St Catherine’s Hospice reach their overall goal of £5million. We will be taking part in a number of activities and challenges throughout the year to help us reach this, please support us and get involved where you can. We’ve already started our fundraising by donating £414 which we would have normally spent on sending Christmas Cards to our clients!

We have had a fantastic year and completed our challenge of raising £8,000 for this fantastic cause – this will only help them run for just 1 day but we are so happy to have achieved this amount.

Thank you all for your support throughout this year, we could not do this without your help.

The Rainbow Centre

The Rainbow Centre was established in 1997 to offer practical support to vulnerable people in the local community.

Since then, they have grown and offer an open door to anyone who is in need of help with any issues they are facing, offering compassion, support and hope. Each year, they make around 12,500 critical interventions, offering assistance to vulnerable people during their difficult circumstances and beyond.

They are a team of dedicated staff and volunteers that believe in fairness and equality and are very grateful for the support of the community in helping them to continue to provide their many services and facilities.

Please consider helping the centre by donating – even a small amount makes such a difference to supporting people of our local community.

We are raising funds to help the Rainbow Centre to provide basic utilities (gas/electric/water) and other necessities. We have also arranged to help out where we can with essential food deliveries, with a few of the staff volunteering for this.

We have decided to set a challenging target of £4,000 for this charity for 2021 and we have already donated £500.00 through our commitment of donating to charity what we would have spent on sending Christmas cards out to clients.

We have completed our Challenge and have raised £5,851.00 which is going to a fantastic cause to help provide basic utilities and necessaties.

Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale MIND

Each year we try to support a Charity and in 2020, we chose a local charity serving our community, Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale MIND (SWR Mind). They are a registered independent charity that provides support to adults who are experiencing mental health conditions.

Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale MIND, as I’m sure you will already know have had an extremely busy time during COVID-19 lock down, as people’s mental health becomes a high priority. Encompassing a population of over 170,000, SWR Mind are there to provide support to local people who struggle with mental ill health at some point in their lives. Therefore, it is essential that vital funds are raised, to ensure their services continue to be delivered to improve the mental health and well-being when and where it is needed.

As a result, we decided to run a Quiz, but not a Zoom/Microsoft/Facebook/Whatsapp, but a traditional paper Quiz. We felt that if people could donate at least a minimum of £5 per entry, more would be great & even more would be better!

The closing date was July 31st 2020. Thanks to everyone who completed the quiz or donated. The winners were: Mr and Mrs Hough, 2nd Place: Mrs Cammish, 3rd Place Mrs S Pennock and 4th Place were Mr and Mrs Marr.

Fundraising has raised £2,550 and this has been given to Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale Mind for them to use during these trying times.

The UK Sepsis Trust

The Moneyweb team have chosen to support The UK Sepsis Trust for 2018/19. The team wanted to help raise awareness of Sepsis following Paul contracting Sepsis in 2018. Five people per hour are killed by Sepsis in the UK and a quarter of all Sepsis survivors suffer permanent, life-changing after effects.

The Moneyweb team and friends took part in Total Warrior on 22nd June 2019, 25 punishing obstacles over 12km including the ‘steeplechase’ the ‘sheep dip’ and ‘the shocker’ to name just a few. If you’d like to support us, you can donate through our JustGiving page. Fundraising over the year has raised £8,179.07.

British Heart Foundation

All of the Moneyweb team took part in the Choc-less Challenge in March 2017 and gave up eating chocolate throughout March to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation. Becoming Choc-less Heroes, the team raised £500. Giving up chocolate came easier to some members of the team than others! But for such a great cause, the team are all keen to continue their support.

Heart and circulatory disease causes more than a quarter of deaths in the UK every year and around the country there are around seven million people living with the disease.

Alzheimer’s Society

We became a Dementia Friend and raised money for Alzheimer’s throughout 2017. The team took part in national ‘Cupcake Day’ and raised £106 selling homemade cupcakes on 15th June.

On 29th July 2017, the Moneyweb team and friends took part in a ‘Tough Mudder’ at Broughton Hall at Skipton. A personal trainer whipped the team into shape and prepared us for swimming, commando crawling in water under cables, climbing 6ft walls, and a lot of running. The event raised £1,316.67.

MacMillan Cancer Support

The team supported Becky Robinson in raising £25,000.00 for MacMillan Cancer Support throughout 2016.

Becky put together a number of fund raisers including regular ‘Super Sunday Suppers’ starting in the winter months and running through to summer, a coffee morning, a treasure hunt, a charity night, and ‘A Racy Night for Macmillan’ which included getting together an array of local gents and training them to dance and put on a show, including ‘The Full Monty’, to over 200 paying guests. The Moneyweb team served canapes to guests, disguised as waiters before performing a ‘flash mob’ dance on stage, complete with airlifts!

All the fund raising cumulated with Becky riding in the Macmillan Charity Race at York Racecourse in June. A valiant effort, a lot of training from Becky and a fantastic amount raised for MacMillan.

Young Adult Carers – Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource

Moneyweb are proud to support local charity Scarborough and Ryedale Carers Resource. The charity supports Young Carers; a Young Carer is someone under 18 who helps look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled or misuses drugs or alcohol. There are about 700,000 young carers in the UK. Being a young carer can have a big impact on the things that are important to growing up. It can affect a young person’s health, social life and self-confidence. Two events have been held to date to raise funds for the charity.

In 2014, ‘It’s a Knockout’ took place, a fun-filled day which involved a lot of energy to complete all ten of the ‘It’s a Knockout’ obstacles. Along with family stalls and a hog roast and band in the evening, a total of £5,000 was raised.

In 2015, ‘Bubble Football’ was held, which involved the team organising a football tournament with the difference that you competed in a bubble….more demanding than it sounds! A great family day out was had, with 16 teams competing. Along with some traditional stalls and refreshments, the event raised £3,891.45.
