Fundraising with us

Fundraising is a great way to join together with friends, family and colleagues to support the Foothold community.

From running and walking challenges, to bake sales and sponsored head shaves, however you choose to fundraise you can be sure your donations will ensure no engineer, or their family has to face life’s challenges unsupported.
