Why run for Bedford Giving?

You can help us to continue to run our valuable projects to help young people such as mentoring, World of Work, our grants programme and more are on their way such as tackling mental health. 

All fundraising will go towards Bedford Giving’s activities to improve the lives of young people in the borough.

The Harpur Trust is hosting Bedford Giving which means all funds go directly towards helping young people, and not running costs.


We look forward to hearing from you!
