Sponsored events are a great way for you and your friends to help the poor whilst doing something that you love. Walking, cycling, climbing, an adventure of a lifetime or a challenge in your lunchtime – where will your imagination take you?

Or why not bring your community together with a coffee morning, quiz night or cake sale? These are fantastic opportunities to promote the work of SIFT in your area and raise some money at the same time.

Please get in touch if you need help with resources for your event, such as presentations, display materials or sponsorship forms.
