Fundraiser Feedback

 

A big thank you to all of our fantastic fundraisers!

We are always extremely grateful to our fundraisers who do some amazing things to raise money for our charity.

We have started our Fundraiser Feedback pages to acknowledge their hard work, to let a wider audience know what they have been doing on our behalf, and to encourage and inspire others in their activities. We would love to feature you here soon. Please send us your fundraising story together with some photographs and we will do the rest.
