CHA charity fundraising

Charity fundraising has been in the news recently. We would like to reassure you that we have never sold your information to anyone.  Our membership list is only used to send out information to you about our trips and events.

CHA are in the wonderful position that we don’t need to send letters asking for financial support.  All our team are unpaid volunteers, and only rent a small storage unit to supply our occasional charity shop so our running expenses are low.

Let us share some news about our fabulous supporters who have raised money for CHA this summer. Liam ran Tough Mudder, Derek and Jodie both skydived for us, and others have had tea parties, been gardening for their neighbours, cycled Chester to Liverpool, run Manchester 10K and lots of other great fun things both big and small.  We are very grateful to everyone who chooses to raise funds for us, and their friends and families for sponsoring them.
