Fundraise for us
There’s a million ways to help. Run a marathon, climb a mountain, go skydiving, have a party or cook for your friends…believe it or not probably anything you do can be a fundraiser! Gwen, opposite, Chair of our Board of Trustees, donates endless evenings to Solace and ran the marathon last year bringing in an impressive £7,500!
Our fundraising pack will give you a few more ideas and we know that once you get started you’ll get the fundraising bug. And remember your pound is their protection and every penny helps! Fundraising for Solace can make a big difference to a family fleeing violence.
“Thank you Solace for being there. We had a really fantastic party and it’s great to know that the money we raised made a real difference to the safety of women and children in London”
Some fundraising successes to inspire you:
