we're fundraising for
Martha Trust is a charity which provides inclusive, lifelong care for people with profound physical and multiple learning disabilities. Two of our Korkers team members will be taking part in the Monte Carlo Madness 2020 event with the aim of raising as much money as possible for this worthy cause (and no doubt having some fun along the way).
MONTE CARLO MADNESS 2020
On 19th September 2020, Andy Barkel and Andy Sills, in the aptly named team called “That’s Andy” will be setting off from Dover for Monte Carlo in the 2020 Martha Trust car challenge - Monte Carlo Madness!
Their mission is to buy a car for £200 or less, to decorate it, dress in fancy dress and drive to Dover, cross the channel and continue to Monte Carlo over a period of a few days. Their target is to raise £1,500 (but preferably more) to help Martha Trust who provide respite and residential care for people with profound physical disabilities and multiple learning disabilities across Kent and Sussex. They provide safe, loving, stimulating and happy homes for their residents to ensure they enjoy the best opportunities in life.
Please donate, any small amount helps!
Head to our Virgin Money Giving page to donate to this wonderful charity:
Donations to Martha Trust have, over the years, built three homes, two hydrotherapy pools, a fully equipped therapy centre and a day care centre. Whatever is donated and however often it is given will all go to benefit the lives of the people they support.
Funds are put towards entertainment, technology, outings and activities that engage, stimulate and challenge Martha Trust residents helping them experience life to the full. Money raised through donations is also used to purchase specialist equipment that safeguards the dignity and independence of the residents, not to mention the individually tailored programmes of therapies that improve their health and wellbeing.
