FUNDRAISING CALENDAR 2019
Although the children are only here for one month of the year, our group is busy for the remaining 11 months with a wide variety of fundraising activities to ensure that we have enough funds to bring the children here year in, year out.
Organise your own events
Could you organise an event to raise funds for us?
Host a dinner party and charge your friends to come along?
Hold a bake sale or coffee morning?
Get your friends to sponsor you to do something different or organise a sponsored event for others?
Local schools could be a fabulous source of fundraising for us. Do you have links to a local school? Please ask your child's class or form teacher about ideas. If any school would like us to visit to do an assembly or presentation about the charity, please let us know. We also arrange for our children to visit local schools during their stay either to say thank you, or as a more educational cultural exchange experience.
Visit our sponsorship page or contact us for further details.

20th Anniversary Winter Wonderland Ball
Our group celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2018 and to mark the event we hosted a Winter Wonderland Ball at Solberge Hall which raised over £5,000! We plan to host another ball in 2020 - so watch out for details.
Saturday 6th February 2019 ~ Town Hall Sale
Thank you to everyone who donated/helped in any way with our sale in February which raised just over £500.
Saturday 23rd February 2019 ~ Race Night
Our annual Race Night is such a popular event with a great evening of fun for all the family, hosted by the incomparable Trevor. Once again we managed to raise just over £1000 and had a brilliant night to boot!
Saturday 30th March ~ Northern Soul Night
We are very lucky to have hosts and committee members who love Northern Soul and have organised a brilliant Northern Soul fundraiser upstairs at the Town Hall. Admission is £4 on the door.
Saturday 11th May 2019 ~ Rotary Club Spring Fair / Street Collection / Market Stall
We will have a stall at Northallerton Rotary's Spring fair alongside our annual street collection and cake stall on the market.
Sunday 14th July 2019 ~ Northallerton Carnival
We were delighted that the 2018 visit fell during this year's Carnival and the children were able to take part in the mayor's parade and sing on stage for the first time. This year we are hoping to have a fundraising stall at Northallerton Carnival.
We are always in need of tombola prizes or any unwanted items to sell including books, CDs and DVDs. We will also be attending Bedale car boot sale, so if you have anything we could sell, please let us know.
We are happy to come and collect,
so please give us a shout if you have anything we can use.
