How can you help us?
We are always in need of help.
If you would like to join the club, or if you feel that you could help with our fund-raising, assistance to others, facilities, or in any other way, please contact us (via "Contact Us" above).
We also need MONEY! To this end, we arrange fund-raising events throughout the year and ask you to contribute anything you can spare, to help us help others.
What happens to the money you donate?
EVERY SINGLE PENNY we collect from donations or profit from our fund-raising events is used to help others. Unlike many other organisations, we use absolutely NONE of the money for salaries or administration.
