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. We would encourage you to make a donation via the charity’s bank. For the details please click here to email us

We were pleased to welcome the Mayor of Richmond, Councillor Nancy Baldwin to our fundraising stall at the St Margaret’s Fair
We are so grateful to all of those who took part in the 2022 London 10k run – despite very high temperatures! You helped make it a successful and hopefully an enjoyable occasion – even if only with hindsight (!). We send a special thank you to their many generous sponsors. Here’s a photo of the 2022 team.
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 2023. 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 here. (Please do NOT use Justgiving – this is too expensive for a small charity like ours to use)
CICS gets 10% from Flamingo Paperie orders. In addition Flamingo Paperie also donates a proportion of the sale of all Christmas cards to CICS. CICS supporters benefit from a saving of 20% when they buy 10 or more greeting cards (any mixture).Just mention CICS in the reference when ordering
The cosmetics brand Garnier has teamed up with the recycling company TerraCycle® to provide a free solution to recycle waste containers from their own – and other – brands. This can also raise money for CICS. For every item of waste packaging sent in you’ll receive points that can be redeemed as cash donations to CICS. Please click on the links to find out how to use this service.
The Wonderful Organisation was launched in 2016, to address the problem that donations raised in the vast majority of UK fundraising campaigns were not being passed to charities in full. In fact, a sizeable chunk was being lost by charities to fundraising platforms’ administration charges, monthly subscription fees, card processing costs and deductions from Gift Aid. This is a totally fee-free alternative.
