Setting up online sponsorship

It's the fastest and easiest way to raise money! Make a page and share it online with your family and friends.

Anyone can donate with a credit/debit card from anywhere in the world. Local Giving, Virgin Money Giving or JustGiving sends your donations straight to your chosen charity, and reclaims gift aid automatically on their behalf.

Choose a charity

Whether it’s animals, children or the environment, everyone has something that matters to them. Choosing a charity to support is a personal decision but you can find out about local charities in a number of ways:

Create your page!

Go to or -click on ‘Start Fundraising’ and follow the instructions.

Personalise your page

Go to your account and personalise your page with a message, image and target fundraising amount.

Share your page

Email, tweet or post on Facebook the direct link to your page to all your friends, family and colleagues. Remind them to donate if they haven't done so already, and ask them to also share your page with their friends and family.

Keep people updated on your progress

Make sure people who have helped you are kept up to date with your current fundraising total, and what other activities you have got planned. This will keep them interested - and they might help you again!

Keep the Volunteer Centre updated on your progress

We also would love to hear how your fundraising is going so we can share your news and good ideas with other fundraisers. Email, tweet or post onto our Facebook  page so other people can see what you are doing.
