Some fundraising

  • John

    John took on the challenge of summiting Mount Kilimanjaro, the world’s highest free-standing mountain.

    “I chose BCD as it seems domestic abuse isn’t widely recognised or spoken about. The fact that anyone can be abused is something people should be made aware of. BCD is local to Leeds which makes me feel better that people I may know could be receiving their valuable support.”

  • Rob

    Rob put on his running shoes to run a half marathon and raised over £3000.

    “I’m not a seasoned runner, as they say, but when a charity like this captures your heart, I just felt like I had to do something to support them. The training was tough, but on the day I loved it. There was so much support from the crowds that I almost forgot just how many miles I had to run.”

  • Lesley

    Lesley hosted a clothes swap party at her home, invited her friends and raised over £70.

    “It was so simple, I had I didn’t want anymore, so I thought instead of just binning them or giving them to a charity shop, I’d do y own fundraising at home by hosting a clothes swap. It went down really well with all my friends.”

  • Sam

    Sam hosted a fundraising supper and raised over £90.

    “I love to entertain and cook, so it was easy for me to combine those things and support a charity I’m really passionate about.”
