As a small independent charity dealing with a low incidence disability, fundraising is particularly difficult. We don’t charge families for membership of our group as we are very aware of the demands on them these days, so we really need your help and are extremely grateful for any donations.

- For several years a major fundraiser has been the CICS team taking part in the London 10K run. Sadly the 2020 run, which was to be held on 5th July, was cancelled because of the Coronavirus pandemic that is affecting so much of our lives. We were very pleased that the run has taken place in 2021, although somewhat reduced in numbers.
If you’d like to help us as a runner we would love you to join our team. Please contact us here and we will let you know as soon as we have a date for the run in 2022. The route of recent runs can be found at the British London 10k Run.
Thank you to all of those who took part in the 2021 London 10k run and helped to make it a successful and hopefully an enjoyable occasion – even if only with hindsight! The photo shows some of the CICS team. A special thank you to the many generous sponsors.
You can also go here to make a donation to CICS. Search for CICS in the Find a Charity box.
If you are a runner we would love you to join our team for 2022. Please contact us here.
Many people now encourage sponsors to give online rather than collecting cash. If you’re going to do this, please set up a fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving. (Please do NOT use Justgiving – this is too expensive for a small charity like ours to use)
