• 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.
