Thank you for thinking of fundraising for the HMSA, we are grateful for anything you can do for us!
Where do I start? The best thing to do is to contact our Fundraising Team on email@example.com, where somebody will be able to provide you with an application form and arrange to get a fundraising pack (including T-Shirt, Noise Maker, Balloons, Stickers, Hand Flag and Information Leaflets) sent to you – this is providing you are happy to commit to raising a minimum of £10 for us!
Can I set-up a fundraising page online? Absolutely! We encourage all our fundraisers to set-up a page using Virgin Money Giving – where you can set-up a page easily and link it with the HMSA’s – any donations will then subsequently be forwarded to us automatically each week. We can also help to promote your page if you wish.
How do I get my funds to you? Whatever is best for you – you can either send a cheque to our registered office, arrange to pay by BACS (please ask for details) or ‘donate’ the money via either PayPal or our Virgin Money Giving page.
Please also ask for Gift Aid forms if you are eligible to do this and send any completed forms to our registered office with any relevant funds, or a note as to how they have been sent.
How do I let people know about my fundraising? If you are happy for us to do so, we can pass you over to our Social Media team who would happy to work with you on promoting your event via our Social Media network, both in the build-up and directly prior to your event taking place.
I want to Fund Raise but I don’t know what to do! If you are stuck for ideas of what you could do for us, there is a list of suggestions below for you – alternatively, if you contact firstname.lastname@example.org, where our team will be glad to help support you with any other ideas you may have.
