Where to send your sponsorship
Please remember to keep your fundraising safe, bank it as soon as possible and we advise to ensure someone is with you when counting and banking it. To bank it either:
Send a cheque (made payable to Penny Brohn UK) to Fundraising Team, Penny Brohn UK, Chapel Pill Lane, Pill, Bristol, BS20 0HH. Remember to say who it’s from you so we know who to thank!
Pay into our bank account (Sort Code: 56-00-05, Account Number: 53874455). Please use the reference of ‘Your Event – Your Name’ and let us know you’ve paid it in so we can look out for it in our bank account.
Drop it in to our Centre (if you live locally to Bristol). Then we can have a cuppa with you to say thanks!
