We have some amazing fundraising branches in the East! If you find that there is not a branch in your local area then our Community Development Fundraising Manager and Community Fundraiser Jessica Barnard and Katie Kirby are here to assist.
Your support is invaluable to us. You are the eyes and ears of your community and can help in many ways, whether that be helping our branches with their fundraising, assisting at events such as our regional Great Strides series or the Northampton Lift Tower Abseil or placing a collection box in a local store or distributing our leaflets, it all makes a huge difference in raising awareness and of course raising funds to help us continue in our fight for a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis.
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, many of you will have had to cancel or postpone your fundraising events. We know this will be disappointing, but we also know that many of you will still want to get involved, keep active and have fun, and be assured we are here to support you in whatever you want to do during this difficult time.

Contact: Sharon Moore
The group was set up in 2000 by Sharon Moore, who has a cousin with cystic fibrosis. Sharon initially decided she wanted to raise £1,000 for research into cystic fibrosis, but under her guidance the group is still fundraising and their current total stands at £55,550. They want to raise £75,000 by 2030. The group raises money through Easter and Christmas bingos, tombolas, a Christmas tree at the Fakenham Tree Festival, Fashion Show and a quiz sheet which are sold for £1.
