Thank you to Diane’s community group for raising £170 from having an afternoon tea garden party.
Set yourself a challenge and get your friends involved. However, big or small the challenge, whether sporty or crafty, whether in a group or on your own, sponsored events are a great way to raise money for us whilst achieving some of your personal goals.
At the Bridge we have done a 5 km and 10 km run and mud runs before now as a great way to get involved at the Bridge and raise funds.
Get in touch with us if you are considering doing or setting up a sponsored event and we can help you promote it and offer support.
