When is a fundraiser not a fundraiser?

Spoiler: when they’re people’s stories.

We’re so grateful when people choose us for their fundraiser. Without fail, every. single. time. it’s the story behind each fundraiser that gets us right in the heart. So yes, they’re more than just simple fundraisers. They’re people’s stories.

Take Harry for example. He does it because “Penumbra are not just my employer, they gave me an opportunity”. And then there’s Daniel. He ran the Edinburgh marathon because “they helped my girlfriend’s mother in her road to recovery with alcohol related brain damage” and he loves the work we do in tackling unhelpful preconceptions people living with ARBD face. 

Nick does it because “I am a survivor”.

It’s not lost on us the effort people go to either. Ryan is someone we supported and he says, “for me being able to do a wash and hoover is a luxury as it means I am having one of those rare good days”. 

And Eve simply says, “without Penumbra I wouldn’t be where I am today”.

Without Penumbra I wouldn’t be where I am today

Our supporters are incredible and we just want to say a massive thanks and shout out to each and every one of you for making our community so special.

If any of this resonates with you then maybe you fancy joining our incredible community? We still have lots of FUNdraising events happening this year, but we’re especially looking to fill our five places for the Clyde zipline taking place in September. 

Do you fancy it?

(we guarantee you a fashion forward Penumbra tee and a warm fuzzy feeling)
