The COVID-19 pandemic meant that our 10 social clubs had to close, and all activities usually enjoyed by the members at the club setting ceased. We experienced a significant reduction in income from subscriptions and all fundraising events had been cancelled. Despite the drop in revenue we made a commitment to the members to remain operational, and we innovated our services and continued to engage with the members.
Almost 1 in 3 people with a learning disability spend less than 1 hour outside their home and 85% have said they feel lonely. 50% of families that have a person with a learning disability live below the poverty line; Keynsham Mencap are providing a service that wouldn’t be accessible to most due to lack of financial resources. For more information on our organisation please read…
The money you raise will go a very long way to providing essential social opportunities for our members, enabling them to enjoy the same experiences as their peers.
This year we have a target of £7000 and we need your help to hit it.
