From a school’s pledge to fundraise for us for a year, to some epic Car Washes during our Mega March Challenge, 100km in a day, generous donations from some of our corporate partners and more, this March has been fantastic for fundraising achievements across the UK.
So a huge thank you to all of you for your efforts – they’re making such a difference.
Below are just a few of the highlights, as well as quotes from our donors…
And don’t forget, you can share your amazing fundraising achievements, encourage others and share ideas on MyFFC. We have a series of dedicated groups you can join. Just register now and head to the ‘Groups’ tab at the top of the MyFFC homepage.
