Fundraising

 

Our most exciting fundraising events at the moment are sponsored tandem skydives!

Our first  jump took place on Sunday 25th October 2015! Rick, Cath and Andy pictured above decided to up the jump height and instead of 10,000ft they chose to jump from 15,000ft! They braved the amazing heights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

Sadly our next jump planned for November 2015 had to be postponed due to the weather and was subsequently postponed 4 times due to cloudy, wet or inappropriate weather!

The next 10,000ft jump has now been rearranged for July 31st 2016. There will be a minibus travelling from Filton to Salisbury to take all the brave jumpers! So far we have 5 jumpers signed up, including two 17 year olds! Each jumper needs to raise £350 in sponsorship and then they jump for free! 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!

We are very honoured and delighted to have been chosen as the Local Charity to be supported by the Filton Carol Bus this year. The Carol Bus will be out and about raising money and spreading good cheer on December 11th this year, please come and support it! The national charity being supported is Macmillan Cancer Support.

We were VERY excited to be 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 raised £50 at a tea and coffee morning on 12th February for the British Heart Foundation.

We raised £85 at our annual carol singing in December 2015 for the Julian Trust homeless shelter.

Saturday November 21st 2015 was our annual Christmas Fayre!

With lots of games, stalls, raffle, tombolas, refreshments, cakes, and Santa’s Grotto for only £1.50 there was just so much fun for all the family and we managed to raise over £860 towards our youth and community work in Filton! Thanks to all who came!

Our next Christmas Fayre is on November 19th 2016, so please put the date in your diary now!
