Greenwich and Blackheath Cystic Fibrosis Trust Fundraising Group
Since our formation in 2008 we have raised over £70,000 with a variety of local events including a fabulous Crimson Ball, an annual Quiz Night, Blackheath Christmas Shopping Evening and more recently a Bags and Baubles Extravaganza. We would warmly welcome anyone who wishes to join us and help to organise these and more events.
Kingston & Epsom Branch
We are a long-standing fundraising group based in south west London. We all have a personal connection to CF and are extremely dedicated to raising as much as we can for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. We aim to hold around 12 events a year (though it usually ends up more than this) and would welcome any newcomers from the area to our group. Our main events include a curry night, bridge nights, and Christmas events in October/November selling our famous reindeer food!
North East London Branch
Contact: Sue Lawrence
We have been going for over 30 years, and have a history of successful fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Although the original members have taken well deserved retirement, we all have a personal connection to cystic fibrosis; whether through our children or our friends' children. We would love to have some new volunteers to join our ranks, give us some new ideas and help grow our numbers and ensure that the group continues fundraising for the next 30 years!
Sixty-Five Roses Ball
There have been 10 Sixty-Five Roses Balls since the first one in 1998, raising almost £1m for the Trust.
The Committee are now thinking of a new format going forward. If you would like more information, would like to be on the committee, or just want to give some ideas, please contact Harriet on email@example.com.
Further information can be found on the Ball website at www.sixtyfiverosesball.org.uk.
Fundraising bought us together but we are more a group of good friends than a formal branch. Our favourite fundraising activity is arranging our legendary balls. We try to arrange a black tie dinner with auction, live music and all of the usual trimmings, every second year. We are out to enjoy our fundraising so Abba nights, Christmas stalls and race nights are also often on our list of things to join in with. We very much welcome new volunteers, we meet informally in a pub in Wokingham. If you'd like to come along you will be made most welcome.

We are a very friendly, active and successful branch of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust who are passionate about fundraising and raising awareness. Our fundraising activities include a quiz night, live music gigs and collections, however, we welcome any ideas to boost our fundraising achievements further. We come from all walks of life, vary in ages but all share the common goal of helping in the fight against cystic fibrosis. We meet informally in Cumnor Hill once every four or five weeks. We very much welcome new supporters so please do come along to join us.
