We are very proud to have raised over £250,000 for NSPCC Childline. In 2017, we held our inaugural Family Ball to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Charity. The event was attended by Founder Dame Esther Rantzen DBE, RHC Members and their families. The concept was unique and the event was a huge success. We held a second Family Ball in 2019 to continue to raise funds and, this time, to specifically focus on internet safety and children’s mental health.
Dragon Boat Racing
Our popular annual Dragon Boat Racing days have attracted 4,000 visitors since their inception and have raised £16,000 for Momentum, the children’s charity which supports children and their families in south west London and Surrey with cancer and life-limiting conditions.
The Silver Line
As many of our members are caring for ageing parents as well as children, we also support organisations that help the elderly. Dame Esther Rantzen DBE, Founder and President of The Silver Line, was the keynote speaker at our ‘sandwich generation’ event, where we brought together experts to inspire and inform those looking for advice on intergenerational support and care.
Our other fundraising efforts have supported Macmillan Merton, Shooting Star Chase, The Haven, South London Younger Parkinson’s Network, Samaritans, Olivia Hodson Cancer Fund, The Victoria Foundation, the Huntington’s Association, and Glass Door.
