Events that raise funds for AFTAID can be fun and rewarding - please tell us about yours...

Two years running, a cycle from Surrey to Edinburgh gave much needed support to AFTAID.

ride2raise - the bike challenge - took place September 2010 and May 2011. Promoting cycling to community groups as a healthy and eco-friendly way to fundraise - while aiming to raise crucial funds for distribution to a select number of deserving charities, including AFTAID.

ride2raise was organised by RAISE magazine (see our Business Support section), the UK's highest circulating community fundraising magazine and is supported by Club Together a leading association and social networking website for various groups.

Among the achievements of the endeavour was to "Reward local Charity Heroes and promote the causes and charities they support".

Full information on the 2010 project and the 2011event can be found at the ride2raise website which provides the details.
