We had a super weekend at #AsdaFrome when we held our first supermarket collection since lockdown. We raised £1153.14 in total, which is a fantastic result. We’d like to thank the staff, who went out of their way to make sure we had a good position, and the generous customers who supported us.
We’re also delighted to have received a £200 donation from the #AsdaFoundation through #GreenTokenGiving. Thanks again to the staff and customers at #AsdaFrome for nominating and voting for us!
Green Token Giving supports local, grassroots organisations making a positive impact on their local community and helping to improve lives.
Trowbridge Pop Up Shop reopened on the 17 April. It will be open on Fridays and Saturdays for 8 weeks.
Trowbridge Pop-Up Shop and Wishing Tree
We would like to thank the many donors, supporters and customers who helped to make the pop-up shop such a success in these difficult times. Thanks go to staff at the Castle Place Shopping Centre who provided the shop and storage space; also to the team at AL Electrical who PAT tested all donated electrical items – all done free of charge
The Trowbridge Fundraising Branch of the BCUSG, came together in 1988, in order to support the Charity through fundraising events within the Trowbridge area. Over time, the team has grown and now also has members within Bradford on Avon, Westbury and Warminster, who come together once a month to plan store collections and local events.
The fundraising events over the past 30 years have been numerous and to date, the small team has raised over £530,000. Some of our favourites include Bingo, Cream Teas, Half Marathons, International Food evenings, Magic shows, Race Nights, Quiz Nights, tandem Skydives and Zumba! However, the theme of fundraising is only restricted by imagination – and we always welcome new and innovative ideas to raise funds for our local Cancer Unit.
If you would like to get involved and help fundraise with the Trowbridge team, we would love to hear from you. We welcome any help, from giving a few hours a year to help with store collections, to joining our friendly committee to help plan events. Or maybe, you are organising your own event and just need some information.
We have cancelled all planned fundraising events and store collections due to the current Covid-19 pandemic.
But we intend to re-schedule these events once it is safe to do so.
Take care and stay safe.
