Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion

THERE are many ways to fundraise and we would love to hear from any­one who is up for a chal­lenge!

Over the last cou­ple of years we have had peo­ple hold all sorts of fundrais­ing events and spon­sored ac­tiv­i­ties for us; rang­ing from cheese and wine evenings to farm­ers’ mar­kets.

As Vicky Simp­son, reser­va­tions man­ager at the Ra­mada Plaza Ho­tel, pre­pares to run the Paris Marathon to raise money for Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion, we would like to en­cour­age oth­ers to con­sider us when plan­ning their next ad­ven­ture.

On our web­site, www.clfoun­da­tion.co.uk, there is a link to a Vir­gin Money site.

You can do­nate di­rectly to Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion through that site but it also gives tons of ideas for events and ac­tiv­i­ties that you can do for us.

There is a Per­sonal Chal­lenge sec­tion that gives ideas in­clud­ing ev­ery­thing from do­ing a triathlon to grow­ing a beard, a spon­sored si­lence or los­ing weight.

Or of course you can de­cide on your own ac­tiv­ity, and we would be able to sup­port you with your plans.

There is a spe­cial oc­ca­sion sec­tion that in­cludes mak­ing a do­na­tion to CLF in­stead of get­ting birth­day pre­sents, or do­nat­ing a monthly amount as a New Year’s res­o­lu­tion.

Googling ‘fundrais­ing ideas’ will give you plenty of ideas if you can’t find any­thing to suit you on our pages, or al­ter­na­tively we’d love to have a chat with you and we can come up with some ideas to­gether.

We have been able to give out some grants re­cently to help some amaz­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions, and this has only been pos­si­ble thanks to the gen­eros­ity of peo­ple and busi­nesses from across the area.

In or­der to keep do­ing this, we need your help.

Enda Ry­lands, chair­man of Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion, said: “We would love peo­ple to get in touch and we can help to plan fundrais­ing ac­tiv­ity that will help lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als.

“In the last cou­ple of months we have been able to help some re­ally wor­thy or­gan­i­sa­tions, such as pro­vid­ing fund­ing for South­port Com­mu­nity Church to hold a Christ­mas event for the home­less.

“We would love to have more peo­ple help­ing us to raise funds that can be given back to the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”
