Keeping your event small

​The idea of organising a fundraiser can be daunting, but it does not need to be big or grand. You can simply invite a few friends round for a cup of tea and a slice of  cake, or get together for a family barbeque, and ask everyone for donation. Whether you raise £5 or £50, every penny will make a difference to the vital nursing and health charities we support.
