The ongoing pandemic is having a massive financial impact on our centre and after almost 80 years of serving the community, we have had no choice but to close the centre’s doors.
With your support, when our doors can finally reopen we will be there to welcome you back.
There are so many ways you can fundraise for us, and we’ve got loads of ideas and inspiration to help you.
We want you to have fun whilst raising money for us, and that’s why we have launched a JustGiving Charity Page to help make creating and sharing your fundraising activities even easier!
Check out the following simple steps that we recommend for creating a successful fundraiser and don’t forget, we will be here to support you every step of the way.
Step One – Choose your fundraising activity
Here are just a few ideas to set you on your way.
Fitness at home – Set yourself a physical challenge and track your progress with an app like Strava.
Virtual gathering – Use live streaming or video calls to host an online quiz or social events.
Gaming – take part in a sponsored gaming marathon or competition.
Taking part in an event – Anything from a marathon, triathlon, charity bike ride to a sponsored walk.
Celebrating an occasion – Ask friends and family for donations rather than a birthday or wedding gift.
Doing your own thing – Shave your head, give up chocolate – do something unique to you!
Remember, when it comes to fundraising, the possibilities are endless.
Step two – Set up your JustGiving page
The best and easiest way to raise money for your challenge is to set up a JustGiving page via our own charity page.

Step three – Share your challenge
Once you have set up your JustGiving page, you can share the page with your friends and family so they can sponsor you.
By doing this, you’re more likely to hit your fundraising target.
Step four – Complete your challenge
Now, the only thing left to do is to complete your challenge and have lots of fun doing it.
Remember to post regular updates to your JustGiving page to keep your sponsors updated with your challenge progress.
We’d also love to see what you’re doing, so please share a photo or video of your challenge on our Facebook or Instagram page.
A big thank you
There is just one more step but that for us to do.
As a big thank you, we will share your fundraising story across our social media network.
Whatever your challenge, remember every penny you raise will help us.
When fundraising for us during the current pandemic, we ask everyone to stay safe by following the government guidelines.
