Preventing Homelessness in Reading

Get involved

Vital local fundraising and events. We rely on the incredible generosity of local people, companies and groups. We need your help to raise awareness of Launchpad and to raise funds to pay for our crucial work.

Events

We’d love you to get involved with our fundraising events throughout the year. Flipping in the Broad Street Pancake Race, running the Reading Half Marathon or Green Park Royal Berks 10K, sleeping out for one night at our Big Sleep Out, supporting Launchpad on World Homeless Day or joining us at Carols by Candlelight in Reading Minster – there’s an event for everyone.
