Fundraising

Could you help BCT raise vital funds?

Every penny counts. Because every penny you raise goes towards the work of our partner projects who are on the frontline of caring for vulnerable children.

We rely on our fundraising Champions and are so grateful for all that they do!

In June, our own Jonathan Smith completed the London Nightrider, a 100km overnight cycle event, through the streets of the capital. Jonathan tells us it was ‘really well organised and great fun’, and he raised nearly ¬£500 for BCT’s work with marginalised children. Thanks so much, Jonathan!

Inspired? Why not hold an event of your own to raise funds for BCT? Any money you raise will make a direct and lasting difference to marginalised children. For example, you could arrange:

  • A coffee and cakes morning.
  • A concert in your living room.
  • A sponsored bike ride, like Jonathan’s.
  • A curry and quiz night.

There’s some info below to help you, and do get in touch to let us know what you’re up to!

 

Special events
