It can be anything from a cake sale, concert, a family fun day, a competition, sports challenge or car wash. Be creative!
There is also an event application form on our Downloads page you can fill in and send back to us to make things easier.
We can supply you with merchandise, posters, T-shirts and collection buckets for your event if needed. All guidelines in how to use them and where to return the money once collected will be in the event pack we send you.
Setting up a Justgiving page
A paperfree alternative to using a sponsorship form is setting up a Justgiving page for your fundraising event. This will be particularly efficient when you raise money over a longer period of time or want to reach people in different locations.
How to set up a Just Giving page to raise money for the Henry Hallam Appeal:
It is important to follow these steps so that the money raised during your event will go towards Henry’s personal appeal and NOT towards the general funds for FAN (Families Against Neuroblastoma):
Visit the JustGiving site.
Put ‘Families Against Neuroblastoma’ into the search engine and select the correct charity.
Under the heading ‘Make your own JustGiving page’ click on the purple ‘Make your page’ button.
You will then be asked to either login to your existing account (if you already have one) or register a new account. Once you have done this you will be brought to the FAN JustGiving page.
Under the main heading ‘Let us know what you’re doing’ and under the sub heading ‘Taking part in an organised event’ click on the blue ‘Organised event’ button.
