We love a good fundraiser here at MS Research and Relief Fund - lately we've organised events from Bake Offs to three-day cycle rides with much more in between.
How would you like to help us raise much-needed funds? We’d love your help with raising money to fund the services we provide to people in the North East and nationally.
Whether it's pushing yourself to run a marathon, daring to be a thrill-seeker or hosting a coffee morning with your friends, we're grateful for every penny.
Stuck for ideas? Don't worry, we've put together a handy A-Z of Fundraising Ideas to get your creative juices flowing. Go on, use your imagination and if you need sponsor forms, collecting tins or advice, we’ll help you out in any way we can.
When it comes to raising money to keep MSRRF running, we don’t have any limits! We are constantly running events to help with fundraising and are always open to ideas from you. Call Dan on 01670 505829 with any ideas or queries you have.
From running a local bake sale to running a marathon and collecting sponsorship; we don’t mind how it’s done, all donations are very warmly received.
So, if you’d like to organise an event to raise money for MSRRF, please get in touch and we can provide loads of helpful hints for setting up JustGiving pages, organising local events and spreading the word!
Here are just some of the ways we raise funds for MSRRF:
In early 2017, Ally – the daughter of one of our service users – took part in a trek to the base camp of Mt Everest in Nepal - a dizzying 17,598 feet above sea level. The expedition was over a whopping 17 days and Ally raised over £1,000 for MSRRF.
In September 2017, Paul took on the Barcelona Ironman – a gruelling challenge comprising a 2.4mi swim in the sea, followed immediately by a 112mi cycle and finishing with a 26.2mi marathon run. Paul finished in 11h 00m 12s and has so far raised over £250 for MSRRF and counting.
In July 2017, MSRRF trustee Peter and his wife Judith held a bake sale at their home, asking people to bake cakes and buy slices of others to raise money for people affected by MS. The sale raised over £800, which was split evenly between the MS Society and MSRRF.
