Our members (past scholars) regularly organise fundraising events to support the work of the Trust. Information on upcoming fundraising events will be posted on the Events page, or keep an eye on our Posts.


The four 2019 Scholars will fundraise by undertaking a challenge each at various dates over the year, from October 2021, culminating in a joint activity.

The Cambridge half Marathon was completed by Beth Watson in just over 2 hours in October.

Upcoming events include a Cycle, Wild swim and Hike, with a joint two-day canoe journey stopping off at some buildings dear to the SPAB. Highlights to be updated on the Justgiving donation page!

We very much hope that you may be able to support them with their target via their fundraising page on JustGiving.
