Caring Altogether on Romney Marsh

A local charity reducing loneliness and isolation

working across Romney Marsh, Tenterden and parts of rural Ashford

How we are funded

CARM does not charge for its services. Meeting Point attendees make a voluntary donation towards their Meeting Point to help with refreshment costs and activities.

Our main costs are salaries for our small staff team (less than four full time people), accommodation costs for the office and Meeting Point venues as well as costs associated with volunteers and the usual administrative costs that you would expect when running a small office.

Each year we must apply for funds from grants from charitable foundations and trusts, the National Lottery and other funding bodies.

Other funding sources include:

  • Regular donations from individuals
  • One off donations from individuals
  • One off donations from societies or fundraised events
  • In memoriam donations
  • Legacies in wills
  • Fundraising events
  • Collection boxes
  • Sponsored events
  • Corporate donations

We are very grateful for any donation, whatever its size – thank you !

Fundraising for CARM

We would be very grateful if you, your friends and family or anyone else you know would like to raise some funds for CARM – there are many ways in which funds can be raised:

  • Host an afternoon tea or coffee morning at home
  • Host a CARM collection box at home
  • Ask your local shop or pub to host a CARM collection box
  • Take part in a sponsored event – walk, bike ride, run, swim, knit – the possibilities are endless !

Your support will help us to continue to provide free services and make someone’s day – thank you !
