A fundraiser for the CF Trust

Winter's here and while outside it's getting colder- inside the kitchen is heating up! We're inviting you to put an oven-baked dinner to good use and hold your own Big Roast to fundraise for The Royal Children's Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust during the month of July.

The idea for The Big Roast came to founder Kirsty Bowness when her four-year-old daughter Grace referred to cystic fibrosis as '65 Roasters'. Touched by Grace's first acknowledgement of the condition that affects both herself and five-year-old brother Liam, Kirsty and her husband Stephen hope to give Grace her '65 Roasters' by inspiring 65 or more participants to hold a Big Roast to raise money for cystic fibrosis research.

What do you need to have your own Big Roast? 

A cosy venue, a roast dinner and hungry and charitable dinner guests. It's as simple as that!

Register your Big Roast event by creating your fundraising page before the end of July.
