Fundraising for the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust
Thank you for your interest in fundraising for the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust. We hope you find our fundraising information and ideas useful. Fundraising can be a lot of fun and canmake a big difference.
We rely very much on donations from our fundraisers, so your support is hugely appreciated.
Setting up a fundraising page
This is often the easiest way to fundraise. Once set up, it allows you to advertise on social media; it collects your money for you and also takes care of claiming gift aid as well. Gift aid can be claimed on donations from UK taxpayers. For every £1 donated, 25 pence can be reclaimed which really mounts up.
It also avoids having to go round to collect sponsorship from your friends after an event has taken place.
To set up a page, please go to the link below and once on our fundraising home page click on 'Fundraise for us.'
