How Can I raise Funds for Bracken Trust

We have some great ideas to help you organise your own fundraising event in our “Creating your fundraising Event” (see below) – whether you are sporty or musical, a great cook or fantastic at getting people fundraising together. You can take part in a sponsored event or organise your own, we are here to support you with fundraising materials and advice.

If you are generously asking for donations instead of gifts for a celebration, maybe your birthday or your wedding, we also have invitation cards you can use to let your guests know about the cause.
Putting on your own fundraiser is an enjoyable and rewarding way to get family, friends and the local community together to raise money for your The Bracken Trust and we are so grateful to everyone who does this – from Whist Drives to Golf Events and BBQ’s to Concerts.
The Bracken Trust relies on everyone who raises funds for us and your efforts enable us to provide vital support to people affected by cancer.

Whatever you do, big or small, it will help make a positive difference to someone’s life.
If you have an idea and want some help in any way then please contact us on 01597 823646.
