Fundraising Information

The crisis in Ukraine keeps unfolding – please donate.

As you know, the humanitarian situation is increasingly dire and desperate.

Millions of people have no safe place to call home. More than 3 million have already left Ukraine, while countless more are still trapped underground, taking cover from the shelling, and desperate for a safe escape.

Hundreds of thousands of people still have no food, no water, no medical care, and no heat or electricity.

Red Cross teams have been working around the clock to get critical care to those who need it most, both in Ukraine and its bordering countries. But with recent freezing temperatures, and ongoing violence, an enormous number of people urgently need help right now.

We are Diabetes UK. Our vision is a world where diabetes can do no harm.


We’re leading the fight against the UK’s biggest and growing health crisis. And it’s a fight that involves us all – sharing knowledge and taking on diabetes together.

It’s our job to tackle the diabetes crisis. We’re here to prevent Type 2 diabetes, campaign for and support everyone affected by diabetes, and fund research that will one day lead us to a cure.

Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice supports children with life-shortening conditions – plus their families.


We help hundreds of children, and their families, through our Hospice at Home service and at our fantastic purpose-built building – Russell House – in Huddersfield. Our services have been rated as ‘outstanding’ by the CQC.

Right across West Yorkshire we provide superb nursing care, hydrotherapy, creative therapy, days out, memory making, end-of-life care, bereavement support and counselling, and much more, all available to the whole family.

Mind provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.


On Thursday 12th May, it was with the deepest sadness and shock that Tim’s sister Rachel died suddenly.

We know so many friends will have such fond memories of Rachel who touched their lives in a truly special way. 

The Big Cogs have kindly decided to raise awareness and money for the Mind Charity – fighting for mental health.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a lifesaving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across the whole of Yorkshire.


The service is operational seven days a week, 365 days a year. The Charity currently attend an average of 4 incidents every single day.

To keep both of Yorkshire’s Air Ambulances maintained and in the air, the YAA needs to raise £12,000 every single day, which is the equivalent of £4.4m a year. The generous donations received really are the life blood of the Charity.

Thank You for Supporting our Fundraising!
