Wainwright Society Fundraising

We firmly believe that The Society’s objectives can be enhanced significantly by supporting organisations with which we feel AW would have been proud to be associated. By doing so we can also continue to raise awareness of the Society and, through it, AW’s works and our constitutional aims. And of course helping a lot of people. Here is a summary of what we have been doing. By clicking on each year below you can see details and, where appropriate, photographs which relate to our members’ efforts.
