Get Involved

How can you get involved?

The Principle Trust relies totally on fundraising and donations to pay for the purchase, upkeep, ground rent, insurance, utilities and additional costs associated with running our holiday homes.


Therefore we are always keen to work with individuals, groups and businesses, large and small that share our goal of helping local disadvantaged children and their families enjoy a much needed break.  And it’s not just money we need. Here are some other ways that you could help the charity..


We would love you to raise money for the charity and will support you in any way we can.

Please feel free to download our Fundraising Pack for more ideas of how you could help.


We regularly hold fundraising events & functions in the local area, including quizzes, charity balls & race nights. Anyone is welcome to attend.

You can find all our upcoming events on our Events Calendar, our blog and on our social media sites. Alternatively you can contact us at: for more details of our forthcoming events.


Have you thought about volunteering your time or skills to the charity? If so, we would love to hear from you.  Are you great at flower arranging or baking?  Do you have the ‘gift of the gab’ to compere one of our events, or are you great at writing quizzes?

Alternatively you could volunteer to help us distribute and collect our collection tubs in Skipton and Ilkley.


We regularly hold raffle draws and are always very grateful to receive donations of gifts or services that will help us sell more tickets.  If you have anything we can use as a prize for a small raffle or something bigger for a Grand Prize Draw please get in touch.

We will always advertise any donations made to ensure you and your business or organisation gets the Kudos you deserve for helping our charitable cause.
