Support Us

We are very grateful for the support we have received from our local community, the schools we have worked with and some very special people who organise incredible events for us that raise both funds and awareness. All of these things enable us to continue our work, share Billy’s story and help to keep our children safe.

We’d love to support your fundraising if we can, and to share what you are doing for us on our blog.

So, whether it’s a cake sale, a non-uniform day, a portion of an entrepreneur or enterprise challenge or a sponsored activity – please use your imagination and let us know what you are planning!

Donate

Our Education Programme is free for schools and other organisations to use, as we don’t want a pay wall to hold anyone back from access to our resources. However, we do need an income and we are very grateful for all donations that help us to continue our work.
