How to Raise Funds
We suggest that you create your own fundraising page on Just Giving and link it to our charity page
You can share this on your Facebook and other social media channels so that supporters can easily make donations online. You can also collect cash donations from family, friends and co-workers, but please bear in mind we are only able to accept donations via our website, so this will need to be banked beforehand.
When you have hit your personal fundraising goal, you can donate in a couple of ways. You can easily donate via our website by clicking the ‘donate’ button and making a payment. If you have set up your fundraiser via Just Giving as mentioned above, they will take care of transferring your sponsorship funds after your fundraiser has ended.
