Why we need to raise funds 

We're dependent on fundraising to keep going, as we receive no government funding.

It costs over £70,000 a year to run our branch on Queen Street, Kings Lynn - that's almost £200 per day.

"Fundraising is essential for the day to day running of our branch. For many years local organisations and individuals have shown great kindness and generosity to us." – Gill, Branch Director

Below is information on how you can support us financially through fundraising initiatives or making donations.

Fundraising for us

You could run a fundraising event for us. Our fundraising activities are varied, and all money raised is greatly appreciated.

  • Garden tea parties
  • Bike Rides
