Fundraising Events

Elizabeth House relies on the generosity of local individuals and organisations who donate their time, money, goods and services. To keep Elizabeth House running every year costs over £70,000. After income from members’ subscriptions, lunch money, room rental and art commissions, the gap of £40,000 is filled with donations, grants and fundraising activities.

Please call 01628 527621 or visit Elizabeth House (Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm) to reserve your place at a fundraising event.
