Fundraising

We are very grateful for donations to our charity funds at any time. Cheques should be made payable to FACE and sent to our main office address. We also have a Justgiving account and Paypal – please get in touch if you’d like to give us a donation as we may be able to claim Gift Aid too!

Our last big fundraising event was our Christmas Fayre and online auction December 9th-19th!

 

 

Thanks to everyone who came along on the day, donated goods and supported us, or who bidded on our auction. We are really pleased that we raised an amazing £1300 from the fayre and auction!

 

 

We are currently Wessex Garages Nissan Cribbs – Causeway charity of the year and the staff and colleagues there are busy raising funds and awareness for us, which is great! Some of their guys/gals joined us at our 50th anniversary celebration and Filton Festival and we joined their stall at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta, along with some of our friends from the UK Garrison! The summer raffle draw saw 3 lucky winners getting a Balloon Flight, a 2night Hotel stay and a free MOT/service!

 

Our latest charity quiz nights at the Inn on the Green in Horfield took place in February and March raising over £200 between the 2! Our next quiz night there is Sunday 22nd April!

We have a Justgiving page, so if you’d like to organise a sponsored event for FACE, please get in touch with us and you can set up a fundraising online page and search for us there (our charity number is 1156904).

The most exhilarating and exciting fundraising event you could do for us is a sponsored tandem skydive!

We’ve worked with GoSkydive to provide charity skydives raising vital funds for FACE, and giving people who wish to jump an amazing experience.

In October 2015 and July 2016 five brave jumpers decided to take to the amazing heights and all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as well as raising lots of money! Between these two days skydiving over £2500 was raised for FACE and 8 people had amazing once-in-a-lifetime experiences (well, some of them say they’ll be doing it again actually as they loved it so much!)

If you are aged 16+ and would be willing to give it a go, why not get in touch? Please register your interest with the office and we’ll let you know when the next jump is planned! Each jumper needs to raise £350 in sponsorship (and then they jump for free)!

here we go excited!    skydiving (9)

We were honoured and delighted to have been chosen as the Local Charity to be supported by the Filton Carol Bus in 2016. The Carol Bus was out and about raising money and spreading good cheer on 11th December, and raised over £250 for FACE. The national charity supported was Macmillan Cancer Support.

 

 

We were also Sainsbury’s East Filton Charity of the Year 2015-16 and enjoyed joining with customers and staff colleagues for lots of exciting events which raised almost £5000.

 

We also raise money throughout the year at coffee mornings and other events for British Heart Foundation, Macmillan, Breast Cancer Care and many other charities. We also have an annual fundraising event for the Julian Trust homeless shelter.
