Charity

Why not do the Rally for Charity and help others whilst you having a great time yourself? We strongly encourage fundraising and can support your efforts in numerous ways, for example by providing official sponsor forms and selected artwork if required. Over the last four and a half years our teams have raised in excess of £75,000 and counting!!!

We are or have been affiliated with 12 charities, and are always happy to consider others. Providing you register using their unique code, these charities benefit from a share of your registration fee as well as your sponsorship. This does not mean you are limited to these charities alone, you can fund raise for any charity, the only difference being if they’re not affiliated to us they will not receive a share of your registration fee.

A cancer diagnosis also affects the whole family in many different ways, so we take time to listen and understand. Our aim is to help ensure that the whole family receives the support which works best for them.
