How can I help?
You can help in many different ways - by donating, organising or taking part in a fundraising event. It really is up to you. Our supporters regularly organise or take part in events such as sponsored half marathons, cycle races, poetry readings or similar activities. We appreciate every penny you raise or donate.
In a challenging economic climate CLEFT has been fortunate to have had the support of people committed to doing their utmost to help us achieve our objectives.
Patients, past and present, parents, family, medical staff at Great Ormond Street and St Andrews, friends, acquaintances, total strangers, they have all done their bit over the last few years.
In 2009 and 2010 the most successful fundraising exercise for CLEFT was our participation in the Royal Parks Half Marathons, which together raised over £100,000. The 2011 Royal Parks Half Marathon on 9th October was another great success and we should know the total amount raised in the near future
There are some very helpful websites on fundraising, such as www.100fundraisingideas.co.uk
Huge endeavour has been put into organising cake stalls, tombolas, bar crawls, children's activities, growing beards and moustaches. Grateful thanks to all of you who took part.
We also acknowledge the many donors who have sent cheques because they just want to help.
We really need your continuing support to fulfill our objectives and look forward to welcoming you to future events:
