Particularly for “personal challenges", and memorials, may we suggest that you consider making use of the JustGiving website (www.justgiving.com) to create your own fundraising page. This allows donations to be made quickly & securely using a credit or debit card & automatically adds Gift Aid to UK taxpayers donations. This method is very useful to reach supporters who do not live locally to you. Your page allows you to create your own message & shows donations as they come in. It allows you also to write & send an automated ‘Thank you’ message.
For personal approaches, you may find this form for sponsorship with Gift Aid helpful: download sponsorship form.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are planning an event. If a "challenge" event we will send you a pack with a T shirt(s) and brochures included. If you just want some "words or phrases" for marketing purposes you can access our latest brochure electronically. Once we know of your event we can also include information in our eNews and alert our PR agency to see if there is any scope, with your agreement, for local publicity.

A simple way to raise money is to do it through JustGiving. This allows you to set up a web page at
no cost which links to us. Donors that use the web can
sponsor you (e.g. for a run, swim, Mohican haircut or for climbing a
mountain) without you having to receive the money or do any of the admin.
The money raised comes directly to us from JustGiving and the person who
supports you receives an acknowledgement eMail. You send the link of your page on an eMail to your friends. The Gift Aid money is
added to the total automatically. You can monitor the money coming in for your event against your target. To set-up a web page for your event just click on the button below - it is very easy!
