Collectively they are known as FUNdraising Inverclyde.

They all live near each other and there is a mix of mums , friends and children who together hold fundraising events to help local charities including schools, Ardgowan Hospice, Compassionate Inverclyde, Man On Inverclyde, children's hospitals and many others.

The children have listened to the adults and have watched them raise money and help many people so they wanted to get involved and fundraising too. Last year they raised £1022 and bought toys, pjy's, and toiletries and donated to Woman's Aid so that families would have some gifts on Christmas morning.
