Ways to give

Local support is vital to our success, and there are loads of great ways to get involved, either as an individual or as a business. We never cease to be amazed at the innovative ways people find to raise funds for us, so if you’ve got an idea in mind, we’d love to hear it and help you make it happen. In the meantime, here are some of the ways that you can give.

Champion a Child

It costs an average of £180 to send a disadvantaged child for a week of fun. Making a donation of any size helps us to continue supporting the children who need it most. Champion a child for £180 or donate whatever you can afford.

Give Monthly

A small monthly contribution of just £5 per month provides a child with three nutritious meals a day during their week with us. £15 per month covers the cost of a week of fun for one child. And a generous donation of £60 per month will allow four children a year to experience a dream holiday. Whatever you can afford to give, you’ll be helping a child create positive childhood memories.

Donate monthly

Organise a fundraiser

Bake-sales, fun runs, five-a-side tournaments, quiz nights, corporate fundraisers, auctions, raffles, bungee jumps, wing walks, dress-down days – there are endless possibilities for your next fundraising event.

Fundraise

Get your company involved

Does your company have a charity of the year? Would they be interested in running a team-building day at our amazing venue? Could they set up payroll giving to help us raise money? Why not speak to your company owners or directors and encourage them to support local children.

How businesses can help

Leave a gift in your will

Charitable giving is a wonderful way to leave a legacy and continue supporting your favourite charity after you’re gone. You can leave a fixed sum, a share of your estate or a specific asset – anything you leave is greatly appreciated.

Legacy donations

Volunteer

As well as financial contributions, we also welcome donations of time and skill. Some of our volunteers and patrons have supported us for several years – some for more than half their lives. Not only does the work they do benefit the children in our care, but it’s also highly rewarding for them too.
