Fundraising

This is a big part of our success story. The last year 2016-17 brought in just on £100,000. From BBQs to concerts, from small coffee mornings to big cream teas, from people asking for donations rather than gifts at big anniversaries to holding a regular plant stall, from a bridge evening to a prestigious golf tournament, from holding pub quizzes to leaving a tin on a shop's counter, all money is allocated to support the membership and to fund research projects.

Can you help?

We are always extremely interested in supporting your fundraising efforts. Sponsored challenges, community events, concerts… for any of these we can help you with publicity materials and awareness-raising. Please get in touch with any committee member if you have a fundraising idea.

Regular fundraising

The Branch operates a 200 Club. Subscriptions are pooled and there are two winners in each monthly draw. Surplus from the 200 Club makes a valuable contribution to our funds.
For more details, contact Malcolm Benson at any Branch meeting or by email: 200club@oxfordparkinsons.org.uk

At each Branch meeting there is a raffle, with prizes donated by members and wellwishers. The proceeds are used to fund taxis for members who need some help getting to and from meetings.

Donations

We are always grateful for donations, which can be made securely through our Virgin Money Giving site.
