Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much
The Nightingale are proud to be such an integral part of the Enfield community and are touched that so many local clubs fundraise for us. Whether you’re part of a sports club, Freemasons, Rotary Club, Church group, WI, Scouts or another group, you can help support the work we do. Some clubs host quizzes, some have donation buckets at their events and some choose The Nightingale as their charity of the year.
Fundraising for The Nightingale not only helps us to provide free services to people who desperately need support at a difficult time in their life but also helps to raise awareness of the services we provide to people who may need them but have not heard of the charity.
We’re raising a pint to Molly’s Bar in Arnos Grove. They’ve raised £700 by holding Christmas and Valentine’s raffles throughout the year. They might be small but their support (and their customers) are mighty in their support for us.
Over the years, Edmonton Rotary Club has supported The Nightingale in pretty much every aspect of what we do. Fundraising, events, volunteering, sponsoring. You name it, they’ve done it.
After Marshalling at Night Hike 2023, they invited us to their meeting for us to speak to their members about what we do, how we can work together in the future and present us with a cheque for £300.
The Wonder throw a wonderful party! Everyone in the community turns out and always have a great time. For their St George’s Day Celebration, they invited The Nightingale to have a stall on the day, and raised money for the charity.
We offered party-goers a chance to Play Your Cards Right, which was a massive hit, but it also allowed us to tell more people about what we do, if they would ever need our services.
The event raised £1,200 and The Wonder has since kept a Nightingale can on their bar for loose change collection.
Our Yoga teacher, Saffie, held a 108 Sun Salute with her students. The went through the 12 poses of the Sun Salute a whopping 108 times…in one day!! We are so proud of their efforts to raise £700 for The Nightingale.
The Nightingale has been a grateful beneficiary of The RSA Trust for over 10 years now and there’s many things we would not have been able to achieve without their generosity.
They have been with us for many milestones. Martin is the Chairman of The RSA, Island Village Ltd. and has also supported the charity with his expert advice to develop our shops and relocate the centre to Baker Street. We asked Martin about how this relationship came to be and why it’s so strong.
