The Care Trust – Door-to-Door Fundraising continues
Our door-to-door fundraising programme is now active following a number of Covid-19 lockdowns. The health and safety of our fundraisers, staff and everyone we interact with is our top priority and we continue to monitor and respond to Government and HSE advice.
Over the last number of days and weeks, we have seen a dramatic rise in the number of Covid-19 cases, driven in the main, by the Omicron variant, both nationally and globally. Unfortunately, and like many charities, The Care Trust has been impacted, and this may affect our door-to-door fundraising activities over the coming weeks.
Our monthly prize draw will be held at the end of each month in 2022 and a fabulous
Toyota Corolla Luna Saloon 1.8 Hybrid car
as well as cash prizes must be won in every draw.
You can enter our monthly draws to support the important work of our Beneficiaries and have the chance to win a car and cash prizes by clicking on the blue CONTRIBUTE button on this site. Thanks to all our Contributors for your continuing support and encouragement. Please support our fundraisers who may call to your door.
All over Ireland, people continue to help our good causes. We need your support now more than ever. On behalf of the CRC, Rehab and special charitable projects, A Lust For Life and HUGG (Healing Untold Grief Groups), we thank you for your generosity.
News about our Beneficiaries

As always we continue to fundraise for the very important work of CRC and Rehab who provide amazing and essential support and services for children and adults living with disabilities and serious long-term illnesses.
Mental Health is an area that came to the forefront of our attention during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns. Following a review of our good causes in 2021 we have now offered our support to 2 special charitable projects being developed by great Irish charities who are doing really important work in the mental health area.
A Lust for Life is an award winning Irish mental health charity that uses content, campaigns and events to facilitate young people to be effective guardians of their own mind – and to be leaders that drive our society towards a better future. The charity is a movement that aims to change how we talk about and treat mental health in Ireland.
The Care Trust is providing the funds needed to develop A Lust for Life’s Schools Programme for 140,000 pupils in 1st and 2nd classes in 2022.
HUGG is a national suicide bereavement charity run by volunteers. HUGG provides a unique service – suicide bereavement support groups which are led by people who themselves have been bereaved by suicide. These groups provide a vital space for those who have lost a loved one to suicide to find support, shared understanding, hope and healing.
The Care Trust is providing funds to allow HUGG to develop Peer Support Groups, across Ireland, helping to create a vital space for those who have lost a loved one to suicide to find support, shared understanding, and hope and healing.
