Fundraising

If you would like to become involved in helping us to raise money for our charity we would welcome you.  This could be done in a variety of ways ranging from helping us with the ongoing challenge of sourcing funding for our services or perhaps contributing your ideas about events which could be held to raise money. It could even mean arranging sponsorship for your group event. 

Donations 

We rely heavily on donations.  If you have some unwanted clothes or bric a brac, why not donate to one of our shops? 
We always welcome donations of money from individuals, companies or groups to support our work. 
Over the years we have had gifts from satisfied users, their friends and family, local pubs and skittles teams. Any amount, however small, will be put to good use.

 

 

 

 Gift Aid

This is a tax efficient way of making a charitable donation which obliges the Government to match the gift from tax payers to the extent of basic rate tax which means that every £1 donated in this way becomes £1.25 in our hands. All it takes on your part is a signature on a declaration form which we can supply.

Promoting Our Services 

We need to market ourselves to ensure that everyone in the Forest of Dean knows what we do, how to access our services  and how to volunteer. It is also increasingly necessary to ensure that funders fully understand the social worth of our services.
