We rely on the generosity of the communities we serve. We are not government funded and receive no National Lottery funding. Your donations are what keep our vital service operational.

We are fortunate to have such tremendous public support and good will, and we never take it for granted. Our supporters are our heroes - from our lottery players, marathon runners to everyone who puts spare change in our collection tins. Without your support we could not continue.

For a full view of how we’re funded, you can read our Annual Review.

Last year saw a record amount of income received, reaching £6.9 million. This amazing total comes from individual donations, community fundraising and events, and legacy donations. It also includes the valued pennies you put in our 4,500 collection tins located in shops, bars and fuelling stations around the region.
