Ready to fundraise for Anaphylaxis UK?

The starting point is a great fundraising idea. If you haven’t yet found the “thing” that you want to do, here are some of our fundraisers’ favourites to inspire you:

  • Run a race
  • Trek or cycle to a landmark
  • Host a quiz night
  • Hold an allergy-friendly bake sale
  • Organise a charity sweepstake
  • Auction of promises
  • Host a Come Dine With Me evening
  • Do a head shave
  • A sponsored silence

If the above doesn’t take your fancy, download our A-Z of fundraising for some more great ideas – there’s something suitable for every member of the family.

Or, feel free to think outside the box and come up with a personal fundraising challenge. Think about what you enjoy doing, how much you would like to raise, and how much time you’ll be able to commit. There’s a fundraising idea out there for everyone!

Remember, no matter what you decide to do, your wonderful efforts to raise much-needed funds and awareness to support those living with allergies is much appreciated.

Next steps

Once you have your fundraising idea and set a date, the next step is to…

  • Set up a fundraising page

    We recommend a site like JustGiving or Enthuse.

    Remember to explain why you are raising much-needed awareness and funds for Anaphylaxis UK – what’s the connection? Why is it important to you?

    When it comes to setting a fundraising target, be brave! Set an ‘ambitious’ but achievable goal. And be creative. Running a marathon (26.2 miles)? Why not set your target as £2,620? Or ask for a £14 donation from everyone to highlight the 14 major allergens.
