Fundraising

Thank you for visiting Through the Roof's Fundraising Page.

We rely almost entirely on volunteers to raise funds for our work so, in order to help you, we've put together two basic packs that we hope will be helpful for you.

Please do download the basic pack, and, for real-life stories of some of the people that we've helped, and some more fundraising ideas, please download 'Part 2' too!

Also on this page, you can read about the different ways people have found to support us, and find inspiration for raising money for Through the Roof.  We'd love to hear your ideas and stories, so please do contact us.
