Meet our fundraising heroes!

Every year we have some amazing supporters who go the distance to raise thousands of dollars for children who desperately need a helping hand.

A heart-felt thank you

Barnardos are extremely proud of all our wonderful groups of long-term fundraisers who play a vital and active role in supporting our work.

Their enthusiasm, commitment and outstanding fundraising efforts help create brighter futures for many children.
