|May - dates to be confirmed ||Put the Kettle on for Antenatal Results and Choices |
Antenatal Results and Choices supports women and couples through antenatal testing and its consequences, who are often referred to them by NHS employees. They also provide training to NHS staff in maternity wards. Their annual fundraising campaign is encouraging supporters to hold tea parties to raise funds to support those parents.
2013 marked ARC's 25th anniversary, and to celebrate we asked our members and supporters to hold tea parties for their friends, family and colleagues to help us to raise funds to support parents. The event was a great success; not only did we far exceed our original fundraising target of £25,000, eventually raising over £40,000 in our anniversary year but we, and our members had fun at the same time!
Now in its fifth year, Put the Kettle on is an annual fundraising event for ARC helping raise much-needed funds to support parents.
