Fundraising

As with all charities, we rely on donations and fundraising to help us to continue with ongoing costs of the running of the Society. Our many thanks to the regular donators, without them we would struggle even more.

Our Lift US Up Appeal, which started in 2014, began with the sales of T-Shirts, Hoodies, Polo shirts, wristbands and the response has been fantastic, hopefully you should ,start to see our name on peoples clothing, in a variety of colours, all around Bolton and into Manchester. All sales of items go towards the Lift.

The Mayor of Bolton for 2014/15, Councillor Martin Donaghy

The Mayor of Bolton for 2014/15, Councillor Martin Donaghy, kindly chose us as one of his charities for his term in office, so to honour that, we invited him and his Mayoress to a Masked Ball, here at the Society. A fabulous night was had by all who attended, beautiful outfits and masks, a signing choir and we raised a wonderful amount from that evening too.

The Spirit of Trust also kindly had a fundraising day for us, again another wonderful donation by them from the sales on their stalls.

Our bag packing at an Asda Superstore was a fun day out too..and we have another date coming up with them in November, so don’t forget to put your name on the list to help!

If anyone wishes to do some fundraising for our Society, or for the Lift Us Up Appeal, then please get in touch, we would be happy to discuss your ideas...
