50 for 50 fundraising campaign

Are you up to the challenge of 50 for 50?

Our exciting fundraiser challenges you/your team to accomplish and get sponsorship for 50 things, no matter how big or small, to fundraise for our 50th Anniversary.

From small acts of kindness to daring feats of courage, every effort counts. It could be to walk, ride, run, swim 50 miles/km/laps, play 50 golf holes, a sponsored silence for 50 hours, make and sell 50 cupcakes… you get the idea!

Whatever your idea, ‘sign up and join in’ using the link below to make your own sponsorship page that you can share with family and friends: Select here to create your own fundraiser

Together, we can turn 50 small gestures into a giant leap for a wonderful cause! Get involved and let the fundraising fun begin!
