Alumet organises fundraising events throughout the year such as quiz nights, book sales, cake sales, raffles, sporting events and more. Each year a different charity is chosen to receive the funds.
Throughout 2012 we are raising funds for Make-A-Wish Foundation UK (Registered Charity No 295672). The charity provide activities and events for children and young people fighting life threatening illnesses.

In 2011 we raised £4,500 for Myton Hospice (Registered Charity No 516287). The hospice provides care for terminally ill people in Warwick, Rugby and Coventry and helps them to live as actively as possible after diagnosis to the end of their lives, however long that may be.
In 2010 we raised £2,185 for Motor Neurone Disease Association (Registered Charity No 294354). Motor Neurone Disease causes the degeneration of motor neurons and leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing. The MND Association is a charity working to help people with MND secure the care and support they need, while promoting research into causes, treatments and a cure.

In 2009 we raised £2,585 for a local charity called Thomas's Fund (Registered Charity No 1123075). The organisation provides musical therapy for children and young people with life limiting illnesses (unexpected to reach adulthood). Musical therapy helps to develop self-expression, communication and social awareness. Further details are available at www.thomassfund.org.uk.
