Holding a fundraising event or taking part in a challenge is a fantastic way to support Climb, as well as the chance to meet new people and experience the challenge of a lifetime.
From wing-walking to mud runs, baking to swishing, our incredible supporters do amazing things every year to raise money for Climb.
Don’t forget to tell us all about your event, we love to hear what our supporters are up to and we will be with you all the way! We can send materials to help with your event, promote your event or challenge, and can also feature your story in our quarterly member’s magazine!
We’ll be updating these pages with lots of fundraising information and resources over the next few months, in the meantime if you need any inspiration or advice, please feel free to contact us on 0845 241 2173.
We are Golden Bond Holders for two major sporting challenges; the London Marathon and RideLondon-Surrey 46. We are taking applications for places for 2017 – click on the event names for more information on how to take part.
If you’d like to support Climb in a local challenge, such as a 5k run, muddy assault course or triathlon that’s fine by us! We have people representing Team Climb all across the country in a wide range of different events. Just let us know what you are doing and we will send you one of our eye-catching running vests and help you to promote your participation.
Maximise your fundraising online
The easiest way to receive sponsorship or donations for your event is by setting up an online fundraising page at www.virginmoneygiving.com/charities/climb. The website is very user-friendly and has been designed with fundraisers in mind.
Virgin Money Giving offers the best deal for charities; it is 100% Not for Profit and passes on Gift Aid in full. Any funds donated to your online donation page will come directly to Climb via Virgin Money Giving, which saves you the hassle of chasing your sponsors after the event for their donation!
You can personalise your page to make it stand out from the crown, and tell everyone why you are fundraising for Climb and how important their support is. The more you make it your own the more compelled people will be to support you, and watching your donations grow can be a huge motivator! Don’t forget to add at least one photo to your page. Research shows that just by adding your photo, fundraisers tend to raise 14% more!
Once your page is set up, share it with your friends, family and colleagues – you’re doing something amazing, and that’s worth shouting about!
