FUNDRAISE FOR US
Fundraising for us can help us really change the lives of disabled adults.
Taking on a personal challenge or getting together with friends, and family is a great way to support FSDP.
The only limit on what you do is your imagination! You could take part in an organised event such as a run, skydive, cycle or swim. Or why not organise your own event; from holding a coffee morning or pub quiz to washing cars or holding a sponsored silences – the options are limitless. See our A-Z of Fundraising below for more great ideas on how to get involved.
Once you’ve chosen your event, it’s time to start fundraising! A quick and easy way to fundraise is to set up your own Virgin Money Giving page online. You can then send links to your pages to your friends and family so they can sponsor your event or post on Facebook or Twitter. Our Fundraising Guide will explain everything.
