Fundraise

Your support makes all the difference

We know it is hard at the moment to organise and hold events in the community, however there are ways you can still support us in and around your home.

We love seeing the creative ideas that so many of our wonderful supporters of all ages have been coming up with in recent weeks. We’ve had backflipping competitions, scooter challenges, zoom quizzes, baking challenges and even sunflower growing races! 

It’s so simple to organise a sponsored event or activity, here’s how:

And whatever you chose to do we can help you make it as fun and fulfilling as possible. We can provide you with resources you might need and information to help you communicate the positive impact your fundraising will have on the lives of local children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families.

26 incredible volunteers 💪
460 🎄 trees collected
...and over £8,500 raised! 🙌

A MASSIVE thank you to everyone that generously supported our Christmas Tree Recycling service this year. In particular, our amazing team of volunteers who braved the wet and cold weather to collect trees from people's homes and take them to be recycled.

All the trees were taken to Berkshire College of Agriculture for recycling into chippings and are already being used with their zoo animals on site.

As well as being good for the environment, we also love that our recycling service enables us to support other local charities. As part of our service, which is run in partnership with JustHelping, we are able to nominate a local charity to receive 10% of our donations. We are delighted to choose 18th Maidenhead Scouts, who are always incredibly supportive of our charity.

What a wonderful way to kick-start 2022! 💙💛

From dress up days and danceathons, to blue bake sales, raffles and even a blue treasure hunt, we had such a blast in 2021 and we could not have done it without all our amazing local businesses, schools and supporters.

Fancy rocking the blue with us this year? 💙
