As a charity, we rely on funding from a number of sources, including donations and sponsorships from residents and businesses in the local community.

There are so many ways in which local people support our work; be it by sleeping outside on a cold winter night, paddling for us on the River Thames or cycling and running in marathons and half marathons across the country.  

We are always looking secure charity places in popular sports events, and to get in touch with individuals and groups who would like to take part and raise funds for us.

Every single person who takes part contributes towards one of our community projects. Sometimes we’ll ask you to try to hit a sponsorship target and sometimes it’s as simple as paying the registry fee.
