About The Research Institute for the Care of Older People (RICE) RICE is a Bath-based national Charity. We provide services and support for people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. We undertake vital research to learn more about the ageing process, find new and better treatments, and improve the quality of life for older people. RICE is still running its memory clinic and support for people with diagnosed or suspected dementia. But sadly we cannot run our fundraising activities due to the lockdown. If you are able to support our work for people in BaNES with a donation, we'd be very grateful. Donate here.

The TRC is continuing to support our clients online in this period of the coronavirus lockdown and we also producing social media content to support the wider public during this time of a community trauma. We want to continue to support our clients and also to be able to help those on our waiting list and need support to do this.
We are running a challenge aimed at being fun and if anyone can donate to us that would be great. Like all charities at the moment we are taking a hit. We are trying to find other ways to raise money but also keep people fit and mentally healthy.
With our Great Community Virtual Challenge, you just have to tag any exercise miles you do to me, or our social media channels and I will add to community tally and use them to travel virtually to Bath's 4 twinned cities. So far we have traveled the distance from Bath to Harwich, 180 miles. We have a comfort box (hamper) to send to a needy recipient and hope that one of our participants will help us choose where it goes.

At this time of national emergency, Marie Curie Nurses and frontline staff are needed more than ever as the NHS is put under ever greater strain. Sadly, some people’s lives will be shortened by Coronavirus, so the need for end of life care will be greater. Marie Curie can meet this need, and in doing so will help free up intensive care beds needed for Coronavirus patients. But just as we want to help, our income has been decimated. We need donations urgently to keep our Nurses and Hospice staff on the frontline. Please donate now. Donate online at: mariecurie.org.uk/emergency

As a self-sufficient arts organisation and educational charity unsupported by public subsidy, Covid-19 has hit Bath Artists' Studios hard. The temporary closure of our studios and cancellation of classes is causing substantial loss of income for us. By donating to our campaign you will be helping ensure our survival so that we can continue to provide practical classes for members of the public and affordable workspace for Bath's creative artists. How the funding will be spent Your donation will assist Bath Artists' Studios in meeting the costs of continuing to run and maintain our premises whilst it is closed to the public and our member artists. How this will benefit the community By helping us to meet with the costs of maintaining and running the organisation you will help us to ensure we can continue to provide our programme of classes and events set within a working creative environment once the current crisis has abated. Over the years, BAS has provided a 'home' to hundreds of artists and, through our classes, a resource of creative learning and enjoyment for thousands of members of the public. https://localgiving.org/appeal/support-bas/

We now face the very real concern that we will not be able to continue supporting the 2,500 vulnerable families that we currently help. Families with children undergoing cancer treatment, organ transplant patients and others with compromised immune systems. We receive no government funding for the vital care we provide and rely almost entirely on the generosity of the public. Many people may be unable to support financially at this time but, if you can, I urge you to show your support to our key workers on the front line and donate today. Your donation is needed now, more than ever. If you are unable to give, but still want to show your support, I also urge you to follow us on social media and share our stories far and wide. Thank you for taking action and joining our fight for families in need.
If you value art, creativity and culture as much as we do please support us. While we are closed we are doing all we can to keep in touch with our community through creative online activities for everyone - something that will become increasingly important as social isolation expands and deepens. We love keeping in touch with you all, and our belief in and our commitment to art and wellbeing has never felt more important. Please donate whatever you feel you can. Take care and thank you.

At this difficult time, we need to be closer than ever. I want to reassure you that we’re doing everything possible to help stroke survivors, families and carers during the coronavirus crisis. And we’re working closely with the NHS to adapt our vital services and support networks. Every five minutes, someone in the UK has a stroke. During these unusual and worrying times, they will need our support more than ever. To cope with the extra pressures we’re facing, we’re training more staff to answer Helpline calls. If you can, please make a donation so we can help more stroke survivors during these difficult days.
The Bath Community Shop is a remarkable, impressive not-for-profit organisation, serving Twerton and the surrounding area – and it is struggling to survive. Week in, week out, it provides very low-cost clothes, shoes, toys, books, household equipment and small items of furniture to some of the most underprivileged and most needing people in our city. Particularly in current times. It acts as a support hub for the community. It needs donations – always. But it needs money right now so that it can continue.
With no voluntary fundraising able to be undertaken, the smaller Charities need assistance! I volunteer for www.veteranscharity.org.uk which is still helping struggling Veterans of HM Forces facing hardship, but their welfare requests have increased 75% on this time last year!

Breakthrough provides 1-2-1 support, emergency callouts, and therapeutic services for survivors in crisis – as well as online training for people wanting to support others. Find out more and how to support.
