• Fundraising Events

    The Bridge Trust has to raise over half of its income from the support of the local community and local community fundraising events.  So do you have a fundraising idea that could help us? Are you holding an event and looking for a cause to support?  If so we’d love to hear from you as every pound raised helps us continue our work with local homeless people.

HQ is the Tunbridge Wells Sports Hall on St John’s Rd

Famed for the scenic and challenging route (the 300 foot ascent of Spring Hill at Fordcombe is to be mentioned), meticulous organisation, value for money and friendly marshals, it was voted the ‘Most Improved Race in the UK’ in 2009 and was voted the No.2 Half Marathon in the UK in 2011 by Runner’s World readers. 

It is one of the biggest events in the UK organised by a running club and Tunbridge Wells Harriers are very proud to have hosted the event for over 30 years.

Tonbridge Dragon Boat Race - COMPLETED

Tonbridge Dragon Boat Race - COMPLETED

The Bridge Trust have entered a boat in the Tonbridge Dragonboat races every year and this year our intrepid team of paddlers scored our best ever result.  Despite the odd rain shower the weather was pretty good to us and there were hundreds of well-wishers and cheerers-on lining the bank to encourage all the teams.

A huge thanks to all our paddlers for their efforts during the day (and for sportingly wearing our trademark blue wigs!) – you did us proud.  Keep chasing for your sponsorship and we will let everyone know how much was raised, in due course.
