Fundraising should always be good fun and rewarding. Whether it’s baking (or eating!) a tasty cake, running your best ever 10km or trying zumba with 50 of your colleagues – it’s easier to fundraise if it’s something you enjoy. We are hugely grateful to anyone who fundraises for East Potential and couldn’t offer our services without so much support.
