What type of fundraiser are you?

Bonnie and her Grandad

10 year old Bonnie from Scunthorpe decided to help seriously ill children by doing a sponsored 10 mile cycle ride in Clumber Park, Worksop. She was joined on her cycling adventure by her sprightly granddad Carl. Bonnie told us she was inspired by her friend Jack to get involved in raising funds for the charity: “I did some research and thought Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity sounded perfect for me! Poppa and I love bike riding and Clumber is a special place to us.”

Fiona 

Fiona has been encouraging colleagues at her law firm in London to donate generously by holding a bake sale, and distributing collecting tins.

Clare and Paul

Clare and Paul didn’t want to jet off to somewhere exotic on their honeymoon; instead they decided to start their married life with a fundraising adventure walking from coast to coast. They completed their 84 mile journey along Hadrian’s Wall in October 2014 and raised over £1700!

Max and Will

For their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award, Max and Will from Buckinghamshire are doing some marvellous fundraising. They have already set up a stall in a local supermarket, and have plans to give a talk at their school and hold a bake sale.
