How can you support Better Lives?
Better Lives runs many fundraising activities throughout the year that staff, friends, family and people from the local communities can come and get involved in. Take a look at our activity calendar to see the events that we have coming up for 2023. You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with Charity news and share your pictures if you have taken part in any activities.
Although we run activities throughout the year, we also like to encourage our staff, service users, friends, families and those from our communities to host their own fundraising activities or events, this can be anything from hosting your own bake sale to taking on your friends in a sponsored danceathon.
A fantastic example of self fundraising for Better Lives is Better Lives Rocks. Sarah Firth has set a target of £3000 to fundraise by the end of 2023 through painting Better Lives Rocks, choose any design and either keep it, gift it or hide it to be found to spread awareness of Better Lives and the work we do.
Donations of any amount are always welcome through the Better Lives JustGiving page and it’s a great page to look at for fundraising inspiration by looking at the activities that have run previously.
Better Lives is the official charity of Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust and the Trust operates as a Corporate Trustee for the Charity. The responsibility for the management and use of the funds held lies with the board of the Trust.
