You can help raise funds for SoLO in many ways.
We have some awesome fundraising going on our behalf at the moment:
We are officially Sainsbury’s Dorridge charity of the year – the August launch weekend was very successful and the bag pack raised over £500 – which was a brilliant start to the fundraising year with them! A further bag pack was held in December and the end of launch weekend on 12th/13th May was amazing. We were entertained by the SoLO Choir on the Friday evening and both Totally Arts and Musical Youth on the Saturday. It was awesome – and the bag packing was pretty good too! With huge thanks to all who supported. We await the overall result from Sainsburys
We are truly grateful to wonderful people doing wonderful things on our behalf.
Secure Trust Bank teams have been working with us as we are their charity of the year – again – thanks guys we really appreciate this extra support!
