How you can help

We receive fantastic support from the local community, who arrange a wide variety of events to raise vital funds for our charity. This includes strawberry cream teas, raffles, open gardens, coffee mornings, parachute jumps, a masked ball, sponsored cycle ride, auction of promises and a casino night. Please contact us if you would like us to send you a sponsor form so that you can help raise money towards the running costs of the Pear Tree Centre.

Over the past few months, our charity has been lucky enough to benefit from several collections held at dinners and private parties. People from our community have requested donations instead of birthday gifts, while others have asked their guests to drop their loose change into a collection bucket.

Please do get in touch if you are holding a party and would like a collection bucket. You can email or phone Ted and Jane Edwards on 01986 784393, or Barbara Kell on 01986 785391, who will be happy to help.
