How You Can Help

As we receive no central government funding, we rely on the assistance of supporters and fundraisers to create the experiences that other children might take for granted. Your help is very much appreciated, so if you fancy something challenging, read on!


Challenge events

Whether running cycling, skydiving or anything else, you can achieve a great personal goal while raising much-needed funds for The Mulberry Bush. Covid-19 has sadly led to the cancellation of organised mass events. However, we still have places in some that have either been carried forward or are being planned for 2021.

The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100

Created as the Olympic legacy event, the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 gives 25,000 riders the chance to ride a 100-mile closed road circuit through London and Surrey, inspired by the 2012 Olympic Road Race.

The ride starts in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a route through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning country roads, including the famous climbs of Leith and Box Hill, before an iconic finish on the Mall.
