Fundraising

Why not fundraise for St Luke's and give something back to the local community? We rely on funds coming in to continue to run our services and activities. Fundraisers can get involved in national events, large and small, and donate the money to St Luke's, or something on a smaller local scale, like a local run or a cake sale. Fundraising can be fun!
