Organise Your Own Event

Organising your own event is a great way to raise money for The Paul Ridd Foundation, while having fun with your family and friends.
  • Fundraise in your area

    Whether you’ve signed up for an event and are looking to raise sponsorship money, or you’re organising your own event on behalf of the Paul Ridd Foundation, we would love your support and are happy to help you fundraise in your area.

    In September 2016 our public fundraising began when a group of very kind volunteers joined Jayne, Jonathan and the family to climb Pen y Fan in the Brecon Beacons in very challenging weather to fundraise towards the cost of putting together our Learning Disability Logo packs.

    In January 2017 Chris and Debbie Griffiths organised a Ladies Festival Evening with a 4 course dinner and disco in the Masonic Hall, Maesteg to fundraise for us. We were so pleased to attend such a great evening and the funds raised have made such a difference to our work.
