We also use our contacts and expertese to help other community groups/events/clubs and schools to arrange their own comedy event fundraisers. We are responsible for raising approaching £100,000 over the last few years for such organisations. We've supported local and nation charities including Iain Rennie Hospice at Home, Sick Children’s Trust and Thames Valley and Chilterns Air Ambulance Trust and the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. As well as local events including Berkofest, Ivinghoe annual entertainments weekend and the Tring Carnival. We do an annual comedy fundraiser for Tring School which this year raised £4,000 for their music department and World Challenge. We've also made financial donations to local good causes including the Scouts and Playground appeals.
All those who work on the Tringe, do so as volunteers, from all the marketing and admin staff, through to those involved on the events including technical, box office and front of house.

Some of the supported charities and good causes...
"On behalf of everyone here, I would like to thank you for the very generous £1,000 donation presented to our nurse Elaine Taylor. As a charity we continue to face tough care and income challenges as patient numbers continue to rise but NHS funding does not. We cannot stress enough how much we appreciate your support to help us raise much needed funds. This really does help to make a difference so do please pass on our grateful thanks to all who made this possible."
Community Fundraiser, Iain Rennie Hospice at Home
"This is just a brief note to thank you and your team at the Tringe for the incredibly generous donation of £1,000 to unit funds. We run the unit on a very slim budget for day-to-day expenditure and it is only by donations such as this that we can afford to purchase the equipment that we need."
