We have raised more than £300,000 over the last ten years for local and national causes. Every penny raised is used for our community projects. Nothing is taken for administration. So how do we fundraise?
We have an active fundraising committee who are always seeking new ways to raise monies in support of our various local and international projects. See the sub menu for details of our activities and visit our 'Events' page or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
