In the first year since the organisation’s inception the main income has been generated from donations and various fund raising events. The turnover in the first year to August 2018 was just over £16,000.
In order to fully realise the aims for our community centre we are looking for much more than this of course!
You can help us in a number of ways: like or follow us on Facebook and Twitter; donate an amount of money, however small, on our JustGiving page or set up a regular Direct Debit or fundraise in memory; raise money by organising your own event or sponsorship, or even volunteer with us. Just by spreading the word about the work we are doing you can help us.
Future events include a race night, an entertainment evening, a lavish fundraising dinner, and much more.
Definitely in the diary is a Tom Jones tribute night on the 29th March 2019 at St Anthony's Club, Fulwood, Preston. Starring the incomparable Ian Anthony, this will be an evening not to miss. Ian has performed his Tom Jones Tribute show at top entertainment venues throughout the UK and internationally in wonderful places such as Singapore and Dubai, on state of the art cruise ships, weddings, exclusive corporate events, and at major outdoor concerts with crowds of up to 43,000 people. As well as great music and entertainment there will be a raffle with lots of great prizes and an auction.
Also booked for 2019 is Eric the Singing Postman. He will be entertaining us in November - venue to be confirmed - with his unique style and brand of music.
Finally, our intrepid band of cyclists are going to follow up the Lands End to John O' Groats bike ride they completed n 2018 with an even more amazing challenge! A Tower to Tower bike ride, and no, one of those towers isn't Blackpool! Later in 2019 this hardy, fit bunch are going to be cycling nearly 700 miles from the the Eiffel Tower in Paris to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. This route includes some strenuous climbs over the Alps. Hope they can stop at some point to appreciate the scenery! Good luck to them all. More updates as we get them.
All dates for these events will be published on this website. So keep coming back to find out more.

Lands End to John O' Groats Cycle Ride - April/May 2018
Here is a selection of photos from the 963 mile route taken by our trusty (and fit!) band of volunteers who did the route in just over a week and raised lots of money for the charity as well of course. Well done all of you.
Ten x 5k ParkRuns July 2018
Four seasons in one day accompanied our intrepid volunteers doing ten 5k park runs in one day including Lancaster, Fell Foot, Skipton, Clitheroe, Towneley Park Burnley, Witton Park Blackburn, Cuerden and Avenham Park in Preston. Over £1k was raised by this event. From set off at 6.00am to the finish at 9.30pm everybody kept smiling, no moaning, and they all proved themselves to be awesome people with amazing running skills.

Tom Jones Tribute Night - 29th March 2019
Ian Anthony entertained us as the UK's No 1 Tom Jones tribute act. What a great night was had by all. The raffle prizes were amazing and the sit down bingo brought a fun atmosphere to the start of the night. We raised just over a £1000 on the night so thank you all for being there, having a fun time and supporting us.
