Help Us

Sam Pilcher Trust

During his illness Sam took part in many fun-raising activities, including Dragon Boat Racing at Gloucester Docks and a Sponsored Bike Ride around Cotswold villages. At school he helped to organise Cake Baking Days and Cross-Country Running activities.

Our view of raising raising money remains as creative and fun-orientated today as it was when Sam was at the helm. If you can get involved, have an idea, a location or anything that can help us raise funds then please get in touch.

  • Spread the word about what we do and who we are. This will help us to establish our charity and reach out to more people. If you have a website, shop or work noticeboard we can give you links and logos to display.
  • Help us host a fundraising event, with an idea, a venue, your time or a prize.
  • Donate a skill. We try to make sure all the money we raise is spent on giving as opposed to overheads, so your skills are super valuable to us.
  • Bid on our items. We use eBay to help sell the items that we have been given as we have found its the best way to raise the most cash.
