Fundraising and Donations
We have had some very generous donations and many ongoing monthly contributions which are very gratefully received.
If you wish to donate regularly or give a lump sum, or donate in support of someone you know, please use our Just Giving page here:
We are currently fundraising specifically for a mobile holiday caravan which our Gutsy children and families can use for a break. This is the single biggest wish item they currently have to enable them to get away happily and safely now and again. We are looking for caravans near to a hospital that we can kit out with the necessary equipment.
Some of our early fundraising activities which have generated donations are:
Our launch party in September 2014 which was held at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Clapham raised nearly £5,000 thanks to the parishioners and our friends who were so generous. Thanks also to the local restaurants and shops on Abbeville Road who supported us:

Our intrepid Trustee ‘Polar Paula’ skied Full Distance from the Coast of Antarctica to the South Pole, where she raised our flag and raised our funds! – over £6,000 and counting www.paulareid.com.
A wine tasting lead by the Mistress of Wine www.themistressofwine.com who gave some great tips on how to choose wines and how to get the best flavours of some fabulous wine. We had a lovely evening and raised nearly £2,000 into the bargain.
