Alfie’s Trust is the only charity in the UK set up to support patients and their families affected by Lymphangiomatosis and Gorham’s disease. Fundraising is an important part of what we do. Funds are vital in order to continue supporting patients and their families and move forward with research. Although we organise events throughout the year, we still rely heavily on outside support. Fundraising isn’t just about raising the money it is also about raising awareness of these two very rare diseases. With your help, we can make a difference.
Fundraising can be quite daunting if you haven’t done it before. Below are links to some great fundraising tips and ideas to get you started. If you have an idea that is not listed, let us know. We may be able to help make it happen!
