To enable us to provide all our events to members and their families, for as little as possible or for free, costs many thousands each year. We need your continued support.

How can you help us raise funds? 
Could you please organise a bake sale, coffee morning, quiz or beetle drive, run a race or even more fun run an obstacle race, do any other sponsored event or guess the sweets in a jar for PADSG?
