Just like everyone else, our children need a place to play, laugh and love life. A place where they and their families are cared for and supported. As the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, we’re a place where life-limited children and their families can take a break from life’s worries and heartaches. It’s a place where parents can be parents, not simply carers.
Fund Raising Ideas
The wacky banger rally is great fun; it is a challenge and as such lends itself perfectly to raising money for good causes.
Most cars do the rally for charity, no matter what the charity is for we are happy to raise their profile with a page on Wacky Rally, just let us have the writing and a logo and we will add the charity here.
Some of you may not have a charity you readily support so why not get some ideas from this list and simply add it to your team site. Unlike the old days you don’t have to run around collecting cash at the end of it.
Charities that wish to be added on to our list are welcome; we simply need a logo and some writing.
