WAYS YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
Fundraising and donations are essential for our charities survival. Our volunteers visit people without any financial support and service users are not required to pay for the service. A donation, no matter how small, can make a huge difference – please see “Donations”.
We also have a dedicated team of staff and supporters who are constantly undertaking innovative and exciting fundraising projects.
These range from Charity runs, afternoon teas, bungee jumps, raffles and charity bric-a-brac stalls.
You can get involved in a number of ways – perhaps you want to do a 10k for the charity, perhaps or you want to ask wedding guests to donate in lieu of presents. Maybe you fancy hosting your own event and we can provide you with Coffee Morning packs or Quiz Night bundle with everything you need to host a successful event. Maybe you want to team up with a friend or two and enter our Accumulator Challenge? Or perhaps you have a lust for adventure and would like to skydive or dragon boat race for us. We have had people take part in all of these things for us before so can help you with the process – just drop us a line and we can talk through how to go about things Antonia.Waits@cyrilflint.org

With massive thanks to Zoe, a brilliant supporter of Cyril Flint Befrienders, for her generous fundraising event ‘Rack Em’ Up for Cyril’.
Zoe volunteered to hold a pool night at her local pub to raise funds for Cyril Flint Befrienders. Anyone that wanted to play Zoe at pool had to pay a £1 donation to Zoe, all donations were then given to Cyril Flint Befrienders Charity. In just one night she raised a massive £197. A massive thanks also to The Showboat Pub who generously allowed the cost of playing pool to go to Cyril Flint for the night of Zoe’s event.
