Fundraising

Come and join ‘Team TLC’ and help to raise funds for The Laura Centre in your area. The Laura Centre relies on its supporters for fundraising, but we also want you all to come along and join in the fun so fundraising is optional.
There is no minimum fundraising pledge, we’d love for you to try and raise as much as you can to keep The Laura Centre supporting families.Why not join with friends, family or colleagues to fundraise wearing outrageous rainbow coloured fancy dress?

Here are some helpful tips to get the ideas rolling.

Fundraising Tips

  • Start your fundraising early...the more time, the more funds
  • Raise and collect your donations through on-line and e-services. Set your page up explaining your motivation and target, and off you go. They collect your money, apply the Gift Aid (T & C's apply) with no additional collection hassle for you
  • Shout about your event through Facebook and Twitter linking your on-line collection service. Remember that people are more generous following a payday so time your requests well.
  • Put some perspective on your request e.g. A £10 pledge means missing a takeaway meal.
  • Don't forget to ask for Gift Aid*. The government allows charities to claim back tax on donations. This tax relief is called Gift Aid and it is great because it means charities get extra money added to donations, at no extra cost to the donor. For every £1 donated the charity currently receives £1.25 when Gift Aid is added.
  • Join a GPS running system for your phone so, during your colour crazy run, your friends can see where you are via Facebook, cheering and donating as you go.
    *Gift Aid can only be claimed against donations made by UK tax payers

Fundraising Online

The easiest way to start your fundraising journey is to set up a page using our fundraising partners. This makes all donations quick and easy, there is no need to collect money afterwards, and it allows us to actively collect the Gift Aid amounts as your fundraising amounts arrive. Don’t forget to shout about your journey on-line within social media or to send a personal e-mail to your family, friends and colleagues. Using one of the links below you can either make a donation or start a fudnraising page. Just click the link and follow the on-screen prompts.
