Celebrate our landmark 30th Birthday year by taking on a challenge (or two) and raise money for A Life Less Lonely, our 2016 campaign supporting the huge number of people suffering with loneliness and isolation right here in Berkshire.
We would love you to consider ‘A Life Less Lonely’ as your nominated cause for any fundraising events and activities that you or your company may have planned during 2016. We are on hand to provide any guidance and support with your fundraising, whether it is an office cake sale, quiz night, dress down/fancy dress day, summer party, raffles/tombolas, or any team challenges that are being considered. If your company is in a position to match fund on any fundraising events or challenges then it is a great opportunity for your fundraising to go even further.
If you are deciding what type of event to take part in, see some inspiration below:
- Run or walk a full or half marathon
- Cycle with colleagues
- Day off raffle – ask your boss to donate a day off of work for one lucky employee and get colleagues to enter a raffle to be in with a chance of winning!
- Quiz night
- Football tournament
- Order a collection box for your reception desk
If you already have an event planned, register with us here.
Our aim is to raise £75,000 which will then be distributed in the form of grants to local charities and voluntary organisations who are helping reduce isolation and loneliness across Berkshire. We support hundreds of charities from across Berkshire that have become a lifeline to so many people in need. At BCF we have the local skills, knowledge and expertise to connect with these hard to reach groups and the grants that we provide make a profound and significant difference to their service delivery.
We are happy to accept all donations, large or small to our BT My Donate page. Money raised will be directed into our A Life Less Lonely Fund with no fees or commission taken, one of only a few fundraising pages that offer this service completely free of charge.
