Postponement of Bromley Mencap’s Summer Raffle

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions we have been unable to post out the majority of our raffle tickets.  As ticket sales from the summer raffle is a big part of our fundraising income we have taken the decision to postpone the draw date to later in the summer.  We will post out the remaining tickets as soon as we are able to. If you have purchased tickets please hold onto them as they remain valid.   If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your continued support.

COVID-19 Fundraising Appeal

COVID-19 Fundraising Appeal

Why we need your help

Bromley Mencap is an award winning charity providing services for disabled children and adults, families and carers. With the cancellation of most fundraising events and funding for some of our activities, we now need you to support us to raise the funds we desperately need to continue providing our services. Our need is greater than ever, so please donate to our Bromley Mencap Emergency COVID-19 Appeal.
Without your help, we will struggle to meet the needs of our disabled beneficiaries and the growing demands on our organisation, as a result of COVID-19. The donated funds will go to where they are needed the most, such as urgent deliveries of food and medication to those who are most vulnerable and isolated, as well as service running costs and staffing.
The need for our support has increased dramatically. We are prioritising the most vulnerable disabled people, especially those who are older or have low incomes. We are using technology to develop new models of support and e-activities, and have sourced PPE for staff who are delivering critical face-to-face services.

How your gift could make a difference

  • £10 pays for a support worker to provide one-to-one to a disabled person for an hour
  • £30 pays for a short respite break for parents and carers
  • £50 pays for a two-hour workshop to support disabled children and adults to learn new skills
  • £100 pays for our Helpline each day providing emotional support to vulnerable people and their families

Thank you – we really do appreciate your support.

Join The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April

As you know, the London Marathon was due to take place this Sunday but has been postponed due to the coronavirus. Unfortunately, the pandemic has resulted in the cancellation of many fundraising events which means a lack of vital funds to carry out our essential work.

Please do consider supporting us from Sunday 26 April by taking part in the 2.6 Challenge. This could be running, jogging or walking 2.6 miles or 2.6 km, doing 26 press-ups, going up and down the stairs 26 times, completing 26 pancake flips or disco dancing for 26 minutes. Anything with a 2 and a 6. The choice is yours. Just make sure you do this safely by respecting the exercise and social distancing rules.
Ask family or friends to sponsor you or make a donation of £26 (or whatever you can afford) to our fundraising page.
Let us know how you got on. We would love to see your photos!
