actively fundraise for Help & Care

We are always looking at new ways to raise funds so that we can continue to deliver vital services to people in the local community. If you have an idea or would like to set up an event to raise money for Help & Care, please contact us.

This year, our London Marathon runners are raising funds for the Roots project. To donate any amount, small or large, you can do so directly through our PayPal link here.


What our fundraisers say...

London Marathon

Every year, Help & Care has places for the London Marathon

The TCS London Marathon is one of the top-five World Marathon Majors and well-known events in the UK. Since it was first run in 1981, the marathon has raised over £890 million for good causes, becoming the largest annual fundraising event on the planet. The event attracts all sort of different people, from professional athletes to amateur runners, creating an exciting and inspiring atmosphere.


If you'd like to support our efforts, you can donate directly via our PayPal link here. All donations go directly to the Roots project from Help & Care, which you can read more about here.


Run for Roots

Whether you are a weekly Park Run athlete, a Couch-to-5K-graduate, or contemplating your first pair of trainers, the London Marathon is open to all. It can be a hugely rewarding experience, and with Help & Care, you'll join a small community of runners to help on your journey.

By joining our group of fundraisers you will have access to:

  • Peer support through a friendly WhatsApp group (optional)
  • Advice from our own expert, Esther, who is a keen runner and gives fundraisers lots of great tips
  • A pre-run catchup in Bournemouth to meet your fellow runners

Of course, this support is not essential, but our fundraisers often find real value in the community, especially as most tend to be from the Dorset area.

If you would like to join our London Marathon team, please send an email to our Fundraising Lead, Charlie Monkcom at We can't wait to meet you, and thank you for your interest in joining #RunForRoots. 

Meet Claire, 2020 Runner

In 2019, Claire joined the Help & Care London Marathon team to run in 2020 and raise money for us. The event was postponed from April to October 2020 and then cancelled because of Covid-19. Instead, a monitored virtual run was organised on race day where participant chose their own 26.2 mile route. Claire was one of those that chose to do this. 

Here’s what she has to say about the experience:

“The whole experience right from the beginning to the end with Help & Care has just been so nice for me; The different ideas you have to think about to raise the money, meeting up with neighbours and friends, and doing things that I would never normally have done has been really good for me. It’s not just the fact that you’re helping a charity, you’re actually doing something for yourself aswell! It’s been a lovely experience and I’m really glad I did it”
