Fundraising


Reading Abbey have raised close to £60,000 and supported 40 different charities in the last 3 years.

We principally raise funds through running public events rather than directly from our members. We are proud to say that 100% of the funds raised are returned to good causes. We give funds primarily to local causes where our support can make a difference. We also contribute to national and international appeals.

We sustainably raise close to £20k per annum and out fundraising events include:

Englefield 10k run

Set in the grounds of the beautiful Englefield Estate, we manage a 10k run, a 3.5k run for under 15's and a family walk. It's a great event with over 300 people attending each year. Find out more here.

Thames Walk

This year we held a charity walk along the Thames with the support of other Reading clubs. We raised £9,000 for End Polio Now !

St George's Day dinner

Thinks "Last Night of the Proms" in April. The 2016 dinner offered a superb meal at Goring & Streatley Golf Club. A charity auction, raffle and some superb stand-up comedy from Adger Brown. 2015 featured a fascinating speaker on the history of Colditz Castle. Definitely a taxi home....

Golf tournament.

Yes, we have our share of golfers too... they tell me this was fun...
