FUNDRAISING

The WIGs is part of the Essex Federation of Women's Institutes, a registered charity, and as such is a not for profit organisation. Running costs are funded from membership subscriptions and monthly fundraising activities. 

 

As well as our own fundraising we also raise funds for other charities – chosen by our members on an annual basis. During the past 6 years we have raised over £5,500 for our nominated charities which have included: Autism Anglia, Colchester MIND, St Helena’s Hospice, Centre for Action on Rape & Abuse (CARA); Essex Air Ambulance, Marie Curie Cancer Care and Colchester General Hospital Breast Care & Cardiac Units.

2018/9

During 2018/9 we will be raising funds for GO4, the original social enterprise providing coffee and food with a conscience.  GO4 works with anyone irrespective of their background and seeks to support anyone who is unemployed and seeking to develop personally, improve their skills and overcome disadvantages they experience.

2017/8

In 2017/8 we raised over £900.00 for Autism Anglia, a charity which enhances the lives of people on the autistic spectrum in East Anglia by holding a number of events/fundraisers, including our Annual Quiz & Raffle.  Further information on this year's quiz will be posted nearer the time.
