How we fund raise

As with any service organisation we use a variety of methods to persuade the public to part with their money on behalf of our chosen charities. 

All of our members are busy people both at work and at home, so ensuring we have their support when it comes to fundraising as with most things in our club involves plenty of fun and usually lots of laughter as you will see from these examples.
