• 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.

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.

Thank you to everyone who attended, and to everyone who donated a prize for the raffle
Of course a huge thank you to Sam and Richard for letting us use their popular venue for free, and to our quiz masters Paul and Sue who volunteered their time for this event.
