How can you help?
We receive no government funding and are only able to continue the work we do as a result of our own fundraising efforts. In addition to the income we generate from events and the support of various specialist trusts, we are heavily reliant on smaller donations.
Could your local community organise a fundraiser for us? No amount is too small and you can be sure the money you raise will go directly to help where it is most needed.
If you (and your friends and family) want to get involved with fundraising for CBT, our fundraising pack is the place to start. It contains lots of ideas and helpful tips to make your fundraising activity effective, but most of all fun!
If you’re an organisation and would like to support the charity please download our Corporate Support Pack here.
We provide all the information and sponsorship packs you will need, and we can even advertise your own event on our website and social media. If you would like our fundraising pack please contact us.
Alternatively, your company could get involved in a number of ways, from nominating us as your Charity of the Year to donating merchandise for use at one of our charity auctions.

For as little as £50 she was able to go home …
