Each year we hold a number of fund raising events the main one being the Dragon Boat festival held at Bristol Harbourside in June each year. We also hold a charity golf day, a corporate quiz and an abseil at the Avon Gorge. This last year 2015/16 we have raised over £90,000. Our main charity that year was the Stroike Association. 

In the past years we have raised 1000's of pounds for many International and local charities and projects.  Some of the overseas charities are listed under "International & Foundation".
