All donations, no matter what size, make a real difference


Have you got a fundraising idea or would like to organise or take part in a sponsored event in our name?  If so you can set up an online personal fundraising page for it on justgiving with all the donations going to the charity – its quick and its easy it takes just five minutes to set up. (You will get alerts every time a donation is made as well as seeing the total amount raised.)

If you’re acting on behalf of a company and you’d like to nominate us as your charity for the year, please get in touch. Several companies have recognised our local good work in Greater Manchester and chosen to raise funds for us.
