Fund Raising

Welcome to our fund raising page and thanks to all of you who have helped us with either donations, purchases, having a stall at our Craft Fairs, or volunteering to help at our events and in running the shop.

For the twelve months to the AGM on the 21st November last year, we exceeded our fund raising target and achieved a fantastic £36,973. This was from our shop events and donations. A huge thanks to everyone again who contributed in any way to this total.

The target for the current twelve months to the AGM in November 2019 is £45,000

The next financial year-June 2019 to end May 2020- sees us lose the last of our Bracknell Forest Council Grant. So from May 2020, we will be using solely our reserves and future fund raising to finance the operation.

The Directors and Committee members are exploring ways that will enable us to make up the loss of the grant. However, a key contribution will continue to be looked for from events held in the shop and elsewhere. Forthcoming shop events for 2019 are  detailed below and we hope that you will come along to some if not all.

Another way that you can help raise funds is when you buy things on line. All you need to do is go to
