Fundraising Tips!

The easiest way to collect sponsorship for charity events is to set up a JustGiving fundraising page. It is quick to do, easy to share your story, and simple to receive donations. Any money raised on your fundraising page will be automatically sent to us on a weekly basis, so you do not have to worry about collecting money or sponsorship forms. All monies raised will be supporting the future of local Hospice care.

To create your own fundraising page, visit our Mad Hair May JustGiving page and select “Start Fundraising.”

If you would like to raise money offline, you can download a sponsorship form here.
