Fundraise For Us
Fundraise for us
There are so many ways that you can fundraise for the Chilterns MS Centre. From cake sales to skydives, the possibilities are endless.
Be part of Challenge 35
To celebrate our 35th birthday this September we have launched Challenge 35, our first virtual fundraiser where you choose the challenge and the timeframe. The only request is that it is something to do with the number 35.
Here are a few ideas:
- Cycle 35km
- Give up chocolate for 35 days
- Do 35 laps of the park
To find out more visit the Challenge 35 website.
Host your own event with friends, family and colleagues
Why not create your own fundraising event to raise money for us? They can be a simple as a bake sale at work or larger event like a quiz night at your local pub.
Or why not try some virtual events? Here are a few ideas:
- coffee morning
- race night
If you are running your own event, don’t forget to let us know so that we can support you. Contact our Community Fundraising Team or call on 01296 823040.
Please keep it legal – contact the fundraising team if you need any advice about running your event.
Collect spare change
You can easily collect money for us in your own home. Simply take one of our hexagon boxes or a collection tub and pop in any spare change when you can. You’ll be surprised how quickly it all adds up. If you don’t have one of these then an old jar or tub will do.
If you work in a a shop or office why not see if you can pop one in your canteen or on the reception desk and encourage your colleagues or visitors to donate their spare change too.
Why not get sponsored to do a challenge? They are a great way to raise money for the Chilterns MS Centre and many can be done during social distancing! Some ideas for sponsored events include:
- 24 hour silence
- shave your head / beard or cut your hair
- leg waxing
- sponsored bike ride / exercise bike ride / rowing
- sponsored swim
- give something up for a month
- zumbathon / yogathon
- a marathon, half marathon or 10k run
Just £200 can help to allow someone with chronic fatigue to feel more energised to do something they love, like walking their beloved dog. Imagine what £500 could do!Update
