Virtual Fundraising

The outbreak of Coronavirus is affecting us all in some way or another. If you are interested in fundraising for us, we have come up with a list of different virtual activities that you can do to help raise money for CHUMS Charity.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support in helping us to provide the five charitably funded services in Luton & Bedfordshire and the Recreational Therapeutic football and music programmes in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough.

We’d love to hear any ideas you may have! Please do share them with us either on our Social Media pages (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) or by emailing the team on rianna.steers@chumscharity.org
