Fundraise Zest

FundraiseZest Title

There are various ways that you can help fundraise for Zest.

Attending one of our events and asking your friends or family to sponsor you is a great way to do something fun and new, whilst raising money for our Zest young adult service.

Alternatively, you could host your own event like a bake sale, charity music night or a clothes swap. Be as creative as you want.

You can also make a direct donation to Zest, which will directly help young adult patients

Where does my money go to?

By fundraising for Zest, you are helping young adults aged 14 upwards with progressive and incurable illnesses to ensure that they get the specialist care, tailored treatment and services they need to be able to enjoy life to the full.
