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 January 2017, the women of the Community Church in Putney held a clothes swap event to raise funds for Wukwashi. For the evening, the church was turned into a ‘BCT Boutique’ displaying everything like an upmarket shop with uplighters, mirrors, pictures and flowers creating a really stunning effect. The group¬†raised a fantastic ¬£650 to pay for wheelchairs for disabled children, giving them¬†greater mobility and real independence. What a brilliant effort!

In the same way, any money you raise for BCT will make a direct and lasting difference to marginalised children.

Inspired? Why not hold an event of your own to raise funds for BCT? For example, you could arrange:

  • A coffee and cakes morning.
  • A concert in your living room.
  • A sponsored bike ride.
  • 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!
