Fundraising support

When you are selected to take part on ICS, you will be assigned one of our experienced team to help you get to your target. 

From planning a bake sale to hopping up a hill dressed as a giant rabbit, they have seen it all! 

The team has already helped ICS volunteers to raise more than £10million.
