As a totally voluntary organisation none of the money we receive goes on wages as everyone associated with the club are volunteers.
It costs on average £12,000 to hold the annual week long activity summer camp for the children, £10,000 for a family activity weekend and £1,500 for each of the Family day out events. We always endeavour to keep all our admin expenses to a minimum, all funds received, large or small, are so gratefully appreciated.
There are many ways you can help us, you may wish to make a Donation or perhaps you can organise a fundraising event, such as a sky dive or marathon or simply arrange a ‘dress down day’ or cake sale at your work or school?
If you are arranging an event to support the charity, it is important that you register with us first.
