It’s a sad truth. Despite the best of intentions, the majority of people fail to keep up their New Year’s resolutions. Whether it’s to have a dry January or take up running, too many of us fail once we get back into real life after the festive break.

To help kick start your resolutions, we're holding a special campaign in January: ‘Yes-I-Canuary’.

The idea is simple. Firstly, set yourself a target for the month to either give something up (chocolate, alcohol, etc.) or take up an activity (running, going to the gym, etc.). Then, use the attached form or set-up a Just Giving page to collect sponsorship from your friends, colleagues, and family. You can then use this support to keep you motivated and achieve your goals this January - Yes-You-Canuary!

Let us know how you’re doing by sharing your story on social media by tagging in Guild Care and using the hashtag #YesICanuary.

Please contact our Fundraising Team if you need any help. You can call them on 01903 528613 or email [email protected].

Guild Care has been making a difference to the lives of the people of Worthing and its surrounding areas since it was first established in 1933 by a small team of volunteers. Today the charity runs three care homes and over 30 community services which help over 3,000 people each year aged from 5 to 105.

How your sponsorship could make a difference:

  • £20 could pay for four children with learning disabilities from our Ashdown Centre to go swimming.
  • £50 could pay for someone living with dementia to enjoy an afternoon outing, providing a much needed break for their carers.
  • £107 could run one of our services for adults with learning disabilities for one day.
  • £190 could pay for a week’s worth of fun and stimulating activity sessions for users of our Bradbury Wellbeing Centre who are living with dementia.
  • £363 could run our Ashdown Centre for children and young people with learning disabilities for one day.
  • £165 could pay for subsidised meals for 50 older people in our Healthy Living Centre. These people will enjoy a two course healthy home-cooked lunch with friends, reducing loneliness and isolation.
