Help us raise vital funds!
Every year the demand for our counselling services increases and every penny we get fundraising helps us ensure we can help everyone who asks. There are lots of easy ways you can help us this Christmas, voting for us, shopping at all the stores who donate to us every time you shop with them, even that last minute on-line shopping can help us. Take a moment to look at what we are doing and if you can help us please do!
Aviva voting has finished!
The Aviva Community Fund offers us the chance to get funding for causes important to the community.
Thank you to everyone who voted for us. If we got enough votes from friends, family and supporters in the community our project could make it to the finals, where a judging panel will award the funds.
As soon as we know if we’ve been successful we’ll let you know here.
Give as you live
If you shop at Tesco, M&S, Waitrose & Partners or ASDA this season you could raise vital free funds for Bright Light!
With a Give as you Live grocery card whether you by luxury groceries or everyday essentials, you’ll raise free donations for us. Not only that but using the card is frighteningly simple; just present it at the till just like any other payment method.
Christmas is only a few weeks away and now is the perfect time to sign up to easyfundraising. And if you Refer a Friend we get a £5 bonus donation for every supporter who joins and goes on to raise their first £5. Please join today! Remember to use easyfundraising when you shop online.
