WAY doesn’t receive any government funding. We depend almost entirely on membership fees and fundraising events to provide services like the telephone helpline and our members only website, as well as supporting our Memorial Fund to help members who are struggling to attend WAY events.
Our generous members and supporters have raised hundreds of pounds for WAY over the past few years by running in marathons, Dragon Boat racing and even by cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats. As our charity’s profile grows, we are also being chosen by more and more companies as their Charity of the Year, which helps us to raise funds and raise awareness about our work at the same time. So please do look out for any opportunities in your area.
With your help, we can do so much more for our members – as well as making sure that people who are widowed at a young age can find out about us, when they need us.
