Please tag us in your social media posts, and we will share as many as we can.

Please complete a Fundraising Event Booking Form to let us know about your fundraising effort.

It might be possible for someone to attend, but a decision would have to be made on an individual basis, dependent on staff or voluntary availability. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

In all instances, we will be able to provide a statement that can be read aloud, thanking everyone for their hard work and explaining how the money and donations will be spent.

What is the best way to collect money and donations for a fundraising event?

The best way to get people to donate money is to set up an online sponsorship page with JustGiving. Find out how to set up your own Online Fundraising Page.

An offline Sponsorship Form can also be used to collect donations in cash.

How do I send my money and donations?

We accept donations in cash, by cheque or BACs (bank transfer). Find out how to Send Your Money In.

How do I know that my money and donations have reached you?

It can take a few weeks to process your donations once we have received them. As soon as we do receive your donation, we will send you a thank-you letter by way of receipt.
