YOUR DONATION MAKES SUCH A BIG DIFFERENCE
Not wishing to state what is clearly obvious but Bright Sparks is a registered charity. We are fully reliant on grant funding to operate and we are committed to applying those funds raised for us and donated to us to the children and young adults that are placed in our hands for any amount of time. We cannot possibly express how much every pound means to us except to say that your willingness to give us that pound makes us feel special and proud and like what we are doing is worth every enjoyable second.
