My Event


Every year we see incredible partners discovering innovative ways to raise funds to support our projects including running a marathon, hosting a clothes swap, organising an end of year dance.

All report it was loads of fun, a great way to share the story, and very fulfilling. For ideas to create YOUR personal fund-raiser, download our Fund-raising toolkit. We can provide you with posters and flyers to help make your fund-raiser a resounding success.
