Fundraising

Money raised through fundraising helps us to maximise our patients’ quality of life and enhance facilities. We have received donations worth thousands of pounds from supporters who have organised events such as a Boxing Day run, raised money from the sponsorship of a challenge or taken part in an event such as Tough Mudder or the Bumpy Triathlon. 

Current fundraising project

The Treehouse Project

 

A group of friends and family members of patients living at Holy Cross are fundraising around £20,000 to build a treehouse which will be wheelchair accessible.

The aim is to build a 15-metre walkway that will lead onto a 4-metre viewing platform, where people will be able to take a breath of fresh air and enjoy the tranquil woodland surroundings.  

As well as raising money, the project team is also looking for volunteers to help make the project a reality. 

Full details about how to donate and to get involved can be seen on the Treehouse Project fundraising page.
