Our theme for the picks for February Fundraising Events is Love & Laughter. With Valentine’s Day taking centre stage in February we have put together some ideas that would be perfect presents, events or experiences to have with your loved ones and to celebrate love and laughter. From once in a life time opportunities, to a great night out or an indulgent treat we have a gift that will keep on giving to others in need.
