#FundraisingFriday: Sponsored Walkers

April 1, 2016

It’s ‪#‎FundraisingFriday‬ and we are super excited to announce our Sponsored Walks taking place around the UK for Cleft Lip And Palate Association Awareness Week this May. As many of you will know, these walks provide a fantastic chance to raise money and awareness, but also the opportunity to meet other members of the CLAPA community.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has volunteered to host a Sponsored Walk this year. You are absolute stars, and we couldn’t do this without you.
