Fund raising in support of the Seven Rivers facility has been a key part of village life for many years and Seven Rivers was renowned in the area for its Annual June Fete held in the grounds of the home. Although the Fete is no longer an annual event, being replaced by other activities, fund raising has benefited the charity enormously over the years and has underpinned the building of an extension in the 1990s, general refurbishment and the provision of specialised beds and 3 minibuses. Support for fundraising activities is always very welcome.
