40 Fundraisers Help raise £40,000

Celebrating 40 years of challenging perceptions of disability

As part of our 40th anniversary this year, we’re seeking supporters to help raise a record amount of funds to continue our work. We are looking for 40 people (individuals or teams) to commit to raising £1,000 each during 2018 in whatever way they wish! This could be by signing up to a challenge event such as the Great North Run (see Upcoming events page for charity places to this any many more!), setting your own personal challenge (sponsored silence anyone?) or any number of other ways. For an A to Z of fundraising ideas click here.

We hope to raise £40,000 in this way to help Bendrigg continue to support people with disabilities for the next 40 years! If you are interested in becoming one of our 40 fundraisers please contact us for more information. Take a look below to see our current fabulous 40 and how they’re getting on!
