We at Vasculitis UK are indebted to all the gallant members and supporters who undertake fundraising activities to raise income for the charity. Income received goes towards supporting vasculitis patients, raising awareness of vasculitic diseases and helping to fund essential vasculitis research.
The easiest way of ensuring excellent sponsorship for any event is to open a page with JustGiving, who will will take care of all the financial arrangements on your behalf and ensure that Gift Aid is claimed on behalf of the charity.
Many of our members enter full and half marathons, but there are other ways of raising funds, some strenuous and some within the capabilities of most of us. For the energetic there are:
- Long distance walks
- Parachute jumping
- Mountain climbing
- Cycle rides
- Bungee jumping
Other, less extreme, fundraising includes:
- Coffee mornings
- Summer tea parties
- Swishing parties (exchanging clothes with friends)
- Book sales
- Quiz nights
- Pamper days (at a local beauty salon)
Whatever event you are thinking of entering or holding, we can provide you with, an information pack, posters, sponsorship forms, t-shirts, pens, stick-it notes, balloons and information leaflets etc to help you promote your event. In addition your endeavours will be advertised in our Newsletter/Journals, e-News, Facebook and Health Unlocked sites.
We appreciate that some fundraisers find that for some events the entry fees and travel costs are prohibitive. Depending on circumstances, we may be in a position to help with financial assistance towards these fees and/or travel costs.
