We are fortunate to have a number of committed and generous Trust and Foundation donors as well as corporate supporters including Arco and MKM Building Supplies.
We also benefit from a dedicated Fundraising Advisory Group, set up in 2011 ago by Charlie Forbes Adam, one-time High Sheriff of North Yorkshire, himself in recovery. Based in North Yorkshire and formed of a number of concerned and well-connected local people, the group began raising funds by holding events which have now become staples of the North Yorkshire calendar, including the annual Quiz Night and Garden Party. It is currently chaired by Simon Reevell, while Charlie remains an active member.
The really important thing is to get people into The Bridges to see for themselves what goes on there. As soon as they do; as soon as they speak to the guys and listen to their stories, they realise how vital the work of The Bridges is, being carried out at the heart of their local communityCharlie Forbes Adam
