How we raise funds to help the community.
All of the funds raised are donations from generous people or local businesses.
Most of the funds raised are thanks to sponsors of supporters taking on challenge events such as marathons & cycle rides.
Other events for the less adventurous but equally as enthusiastic supporters are shopping events and recycling initiatives.
Dexter's Light has no financial outgoings. All of our team are volunteers and give their time free of charge.
All funds raised for Dexter's Light go directly towards purchasing sensory and educational equipment.
All monies raised by Dexter's Light on behalf of the Lullaby Trust go directly to the Lullaby Trust for research and bereavement support.
If you want to raise funds for any of these vital causes then please contact us.
