Even though all our staff give their services voluntarily, the centre has other running costs. All of the money is currently raised through fundraising and donations.

Costs of running the Keystone Centre

We are reliant on a variety of fundraising activities  to help us raise the money to undertake our essential work, including sponsored walks, raffles, race nights, garden parties, donations etc. throughout the year. You can donate at any time by clicking the Donate button on the Home Page.


We are always receptive to any new ideas for raising funds. So, if you have any ideas, please contact us.


There are a number of sponsored activities in the Church Lawton area which help us to raise money.
