Fundraising events and activities help us to reach our goals and give us the opportunity to help members achieve a better quality of life.

From coffee mornings, sponsored cycling, walking and more; we hold several events throughout the year to raise funds for the Charity all of which you could get involved in. We also help support entrants who choose to raise money for us running in local and national marathons.

If you’d like to fundraise or volunteer to help support our service there are a number of ways you can get involved. Below are some fundraising ideas to get you started:

  • Host a raffle, coffee morning or Bake sale at work

  • Ask your employers for a sponsored dress down day

  • Run in an established sponsored walk or race

  • Charity Car Wash

  • Craft events

  • Come dine with me charity night – everyone donates money for their meal

  • Host a magic show or singing event

If you’d like to get involved in other ways, we also have a number of volunteering opportunities including; helping out at events, writing for our ‘Ticker Newsletter’, to joining our fundraising committee.

The committee work to organise fundraising events and activities in order to help us keep the charity running. They meet on the second Tuesday of every month and happily welcome fresh ideas and newcomers. If you would like to come along to a meeting to find out more, we would love to meet you!

Introducing – Easyfundraising, a way to raise funds for our charity at NO COST to yourself!

More and more of us are shopping online, and here is a great way to raise funds for Cardiac Rehab.

Easyfundraising is a charity donation organisation that arranges for online retailers to donate to your chosen charity every time you shop. It is affiliated to over 4,000 retailers, so almost everything you buy online can earn money for Cardiac Rehab. What’s more, it’s simple to use, effortless and secure.

All you have to do is register on their website and choose North Gwent Cardiff Rehabilitation & Aftercare as your charity. Then, every time you shop online, you simply go to Easyfundraising rather than directly to the retailer, find the shop you want, and that’s it. The retailer makes a donation (usually ranging from 0.5% to 1.5%) of the purchase price, at no extra cost to you.  Small amounts maybe, but if we all join in, it could mean significant donations to the charity.  What’s more, Easyfundraising works with travel and insurance companies, even comparison sites. So if you use this method to book your holiday (when you can!), take out home or car insurance, or even switch your energy provider, you can be making money for our charity.

Please go to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ and register NOW. Tell your family and friends too. They, and you, have nothing to lose, but the charity has everything to gain.

If you want to give something back and potentially win something for yourself in the process then join our 200+ Club. As one of our newest fundraising initiatives this is your opportunity to support the work we do and be in with the chance of winning a cash prize every 3 months of the year. Find out more here
