Becoming a Fundraising Volunteer
We are always looking for people to help us with our fundraising. Unfortunately fundraising is becoming increasingly important to us due to funding cutbacks and freezing. We try to make getting involved in our fundraising events as much fun as possible so that people feel there is a social element to it to.

We also welcome fresh ideas and fresh legs!! So if you have a fundraising idea please contact us on 071 91 71188 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
