Fund Raising Events

Fundraising events mean that each participant donates individually but does not collect from others via sponsorship. This covers a very wide range of events such as quiz nights, table sales, wine tasting, hog roast, coffee mornings , cake sales, open gardens etc. Again, depending on the event, insurance and permissions may be required. If you would like to do something then please contact us.

Sponsored events

Sponsored events really fall into two types - specific events where everybody who is taking part is supporting just the one charity associated with that event and general events where each runner can use the opportunity for sponsorship of a charity they personally support. Arranging a specific sponsored event is more complex. For example a "Fun Run" will need resources such as insurance and permissions from the Local Authority and Police, togther with adeqaute supervison and marshalling. Other types of sponsored events may not be as demanding to organise.

Oral Morphine: The Pain Relief Key

Cheap and Non-Addictive

Imagine a world where however bad the pain, the strongest pain killer is just paracetamol.

When Hospice Africa started in Kampala, Uganda, in September 1993 this was the reality for Bashir, aged 8. Bashir had cancer and had just had his arm amputated.
