FUNdraising

We undertake a number of fundraising activities and we are extremely grateful to everyone who supports these events in any way and for the donations that we receive!

 

The Bruce Trust is a non-profit organisation. In light of this and the fact that we are often working on specific projects to expand and further improve The Bruce Trust, we have a number of local groups who assist us with regular fundraising events as well as individuals who come up with their own unique way of raising money for us. 

Please read on to find out more about how you can help us fundraise through the following routes:-

 

Join our 50/50 Lottery Club (please see below for more details)


 ...........  or send a cheque payable to “The Bruce Trust”, PO Box 21, Hungerford, Berks RG17 9TR.

For any further information about fundraising for The Bruce Trust please contact Rebecca Bruce at

Thanks to Mike Lang

The Trust would like to say an enormous thank you to Mike for creating the 50/50 Club (detailed below) 13 years ago and running it since then as a very dedicated volunteer. At the start he designed a random number generator on his computer, which has been used every month since to produce the winning numbers, he has regularly gone through the monthly bank statements and kept the spreadsheet of participants up to date. Through this dedication and hard work, he has enabled the Lottery Club to generate a much-appreciated income of over £20,000 during this time, all of which has been used to help maintain the boats. Mike has recently decided to retire from this role and we wish him all the best for the future and thank him whole-heartedly for his support to The Bruce Trust over the years.

 

50/50 Lottery Club

We have a 50/50 Lottery Club which is a monthly draw, the value of the prizes being dependent on the number of entrants, which are currently:

1st Prize £60

2nd Prize £30

3rd Prize £15

 

You can buy up to 10 tickets per month at £1 per ticket and pay monthly or annually. Half the money raised goes as prizes and the other half towards the maintenance of the Bruce Boats. To take part, send us an email as the more people that take part, the larger the prizes! Email: enquiries@brucetrust.org.uk if you would like to take part.
