FUNDRAISING   

In order to reduce our costs we will fund raise at some events ( cake stall usually). 

Also the squad is registered to Easyfundraising. This is a site that donates money to the squad if you buy things through them. Please visit the site and register with them to help us raise funds for the squad. 

 We continue to receive money from Easyfundraising which helps to keep us afloat along with the donation of £1000 from WMOA.
