Ton of Love
Can you raise £100 for us - any way you can!
Ton of Love is a very simple fundraising idea - show us your love by raising £100 any time during 2020 in any way you can!
In its first year, the campaign raised £20,744 for us, and there were some amazing events and activities - just take a look below. Of course, many of these raised far more than £100, but we are so grateful to each and every one who took part.
It's really easy; why not ask for sponsorship on a virtual marathon around your garden? Or take part in the Virtual Three Peaks - on your staircase at home!
You could ask for donations rather than a present for a forthcoming birthday or anniversary. Or we can even provide a fundraising card for your family and friends to complete - they're like the traditional football cards, and the winner gets £20 with £100 for us.
Not for you? Then shave your head, dye your beard, organise a cake sale or a dress down day - we're sure you'll come up with something fun. Or take inspiration from the list of previous Ton of love participants.
Once you've decided what to do, please let us know by completing the registration below.
We'll also be inviting you to send in your photo for inclusion in a mosaic, which will take pride of place in our reception for all 2021. Look at the one currently on display.
