Thank you so much for choosing to raise money for your local hospice charity, we couldn't provide the care we do without your support. We hope you have a great time training for, and completing your event. You're a superstar!

Reach for the stars

By setting a fundraising target you have something to aim for and focus on. People may donate more to help you reach your goal.

Set up a JustGiving page

It’s the quickest and easiest way to fundraise and the money you raise comes straight to us. Set up your page here, or read our simple JustGiving guide to get you started. Or you can download the sponsor form to start collecting donations.

Struggling for ideas?

Check out our A-Z of fundraising ideas to get you started.

Use all your social media platforms to let everyone know what you are doing – update them on your progress and keep them in the loop.

Tell your supporters what you’re doing, and what the charity means to you. Make it personal – don’t just ask for donations. When you’ve completed your challenge let everybody know how well you did – don’t forget to say thank you!

Remember to tag us in your posts! We love to see how your progress is going, and celebrate with you once you’ve completed your event.

Match funding?

Many employers offer match funding, where they’ll double what you raise. Double check with your employer to see if they offer this, or a similar scheme.

Let people know what you’re up to!

Why not add the link to your Just-Giving page to your email signature? or send a text to everyone on your phone contacts and ask them to donate just £2 (don’t forget your JustGiving link!)

If you’re a UK taxpayer we would love you to GiftAid your donation!

You can ask all your sponsors to gift aid their donation by ticking the box on the sponsorship form or by donating to your JustGiving page, this will help us raise an extra 25p for every £1 you are sponsored.

Please note: we’re unable to put GiftAid towards your minimum sponsorship target.
