We raise much of our income from fund raising and expect all members to assist with this work. Examples of what we do on a regular basis include bag packs, raffles, sale of goods made by members, sponsored events, Christmas Fayre.
Members are encouraged to organise events themselves and some have organised coffee mornings, sky dives, concerts etc.
A list of potential fund raising ideas can be accessed using the link below. Contact the office if you have any fund raising ideas and we will support you as much as we can.
Just Giving is an online fund raising service which we use. It can be accessed here. Members can make a donation online or organise their own fund raising event on line. We receive Gift Aid on all donations made through this website.
Gift Aid is a government scheme which allows us to claim 25p for every pound any taxpayers donate.
We have been Specsavers nominated charity for 18 months during which time they have raised the fantastic sum of £3,500 for us.
We have received support in various forms from private companies and individuals. Sometimes this comes as gifts in kind (our auditor does not charge and our solicitor has given substantial amounts of free advice) and members have contributed items for use in our centre. If you can encourage a business to sponsor us in any way please do so.
