help make a difference - and have fun too

Friends for Leisure relies greatly on the generosity of our supporters who take part in fundraising activities throughout the year.

Fundraising is vital to enable Friends for Leisure to continue providing the level of service and activities that so many young people enjoy. Extra funds mean we can extend our support to more young people.
