Our biggest fundraiser at the end of each year is our Christmas Fayre, which often raises £600-900 each year, and in 2019 we also held an Online Auction which raised over £1400 for FACE!
The 2024 Christmas Fayre will be held on 30th November 12-3pm
We worked with ASDA Filton to run a charity event ‘Think Pink!’ in 2019 raising funds for Breast Cancer charities and also with charity hair cuts and hair donations going to the Little Princess Trust – a fab charity who make wigs for children with cancer!
We held a Gift Day in 2019 to raise funds !
We provided lots and lots (and lots!) of donuts on February 7th and raised over £400!
We have regular charity quiz nights at local pubs!
We held online quizzes via Zoom during 2020/1.
We have a Justgiving page, so if you’d like to organise a sponsored event for FACE, please get in touch with us and you can set up a fundraising online page and search for us there (our charity number is 1156904).
The most exhilarating and exciting fundraising event you could do for us is a sponsored tandem skydive!
We’ve worked with GoSkydive to provide charity skydives raising vital funds for FACE, and giving people who wish to jump an amazing experience.
In October 2015 and July 2016 five brave jumpers decided to take to the amazing heights and all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as well as raising lots of money! Between these two days skydiving over £2500 was raised for FACE and 8 people had amazing once-in-a-lifetime experiences (well, some of them say they’ll be doing it again actually as they loved it so much!)
If you are aged 16+ and would be willing to give it a go, why not get in touch? Please register your interest with the office and we’ll let you know when the next jump is planned! Each jumper needs to raise £350 in sponsorship (and then they jump for free)!
There are lots of ways to support FACE with fundraising! If you have an idea for an event then please get in touch or ask us about our up and coming events!

We were supported by Waitrose Henleaze in 2018 receiving a cheque for £500.
We were also supported by the Cooperative Community Fund in 2017 and again in 2021, meaning that customers could select FACE to receive donations earned through their shopping!
ASDA in Filton is a regular supporter with donations for events, and small grants through their community fund. The most recent in 2023, has been £550 for new equipment.
