The AGSD-UK holds a number of challenging fundraising events which anyone can join in.
Many people organise their own fundraising activities, such as a sponsored walk, a parachute jump, a car boot sale or a raffle. We can help by supporting your efforts.
Join a nationally organised challenge
We have a number of exciting centrally-organised events coming up which we would like you to participate in, or support others who are participating. These fund raising events are always great fun. So please get involved!
Big Fun Run for AGSD-UK!
There are 5k runs all around the country that you can join in the name of the AGSD-UK. A full list of venues for 2019 will be published soon. Once you have selected your event contact the office and we’ll make sure we have places available for you and anyone else you’ll be running with.
Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100
AGSD-UK has 20 places in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 cyclo-sportive for 2019, on Sunday August 4th 2019. This is a big fund raising opportunity for us, and a great day!
Taking an AGSD-UK place will require you to raise at least £500 for the charity. You also need to confirm that you can ride 100 miles within 8 hours.
The Public Ballot places were announced in February. If you were not successful in gaining a ballot place then we will allocate AGSD-UK places on a first-come, first-served basis, after the ballot places are announced.
Want to do your own thing?… we can help.
You might be planning a sponsored head-shave, a fundraising dinner party, maybe a car boot sale to help de-clutter as well as raising some money or maybe just a collection.
Your own sponsored challenge
Let us know as what you would like to do and we can supply help and advice as well as things like T-shirts and sponsor forms. If it is something particularly unusual it may be newsworthy, so we can help raise awareness through your local press and media.
Do you want to do a parachute jump, trek the Inca Trail in Peru or even walk along the Great Wall of China? Again, we can help you realise these ambitions as well as raising vital funds.
Just e-mail our fundraising team and we are ready to help! Or call us on 0300 123 2790.
Mobilise social media
You can probably think of many ways to mobilise social media. Here is an inspiring example: Pompe Support Team member Gemma Seyfang produced a “Twelve Days of Christmas” video about Pompe disease (GSD2) and shared it on social media with a link to a fundraising page.
It was a fun way of including a group of people in a project, passing on a message and encouraging people to donate by linking to a sponsorship page for AGSD-UK.
Click on the video to enjoy the fun.
Could you do your own project and make it go viral on social media? If you would like to ask Gemma how she did hers, we can put you in touch. Just use the “Message us” form.
Place an AGSD-UK collection box.
Do you know somewhere you could place a collection box – perhaps your local pub, shop or leisure centre?
If so, then do let us know and we can supply you with a collection box along with some guidelines for checking on it and emptying it regularly. Every penny really does help, so please give Allan a call in the AGSD-UK office on 0300 123 2790, or drop him an email.
