Fundraising

How about becoming a #LWSTAR?

We all have something we’re good at, or something we’ve always fancied doing. Whatever your 'thing' is, we’re here to help you turn it into a fantastic fundraiser that’ll impact the lives of local women.

If you are stuck for ideas, there are plenty of tried and tested ways which can help you raise lots of money to support our work with women in your local community.

We have everything you need to get you started, from the latest fundraising tools, to handy tips for securing sponsors - we’ve got you covered!

Organise Your Own Event On Our Behalf

However you choose to support us, we would love to hear from you. You might have your own idea for a fundraiser, from a coffee morning to a cake sale, a golf day or masquerade ball.

We can provide you with all the support and advice you need to make your idea or event a success, and celebrate your efforts for local women along the way.
