Honesty jar at a wedding reception

When Rhia and Fernando tied the knot, they raised money for ERIC at the same time. They had an open bar at the wedding reception but asked guests to contribute to an ‘honesty jar’. They raised over £210.

I’d read somewhere that a couple had donated money from their wedding to charity and thought it would be so easy for Fernando and I to do the same. It’s such a simple way to raise funds and spread the word about ERIC at the same time. (Rhia Favero)

Running a half marathon

ERIC fundraiser Amy AttrillAmy Attrill, whose son Kane suffers from severe constipation, completed the Bournemouth Bay Half Marathon and raised over £250 for ERIC.

I completed the Bournemouth Bay Half Marathon in 2hr31. I'm so glad to help ERIC, they've been fab and understanding. My son, Kane, loves ERIC too. The weather was fantastic, I loved doing it even though my knees are sore. I have the bug now, so next, I want to jump out of a plane for ERIC! (Amy Attrill)
