So you’d like to fundraise for us? If it wasn’t for our amazing fundraisers, we wouldn’t be able to support the amputee community the way we do, so from all on the FYF team and all our Troopers – THANK YOU!
We will do everything we can to support your fundraising efforts. Have a look at the information below and if there’s anything else we can do, just get in touch with Nikki.
Sponsorship – You can set up a Just Giving online fundraising page, or if you prefer the old school method, download a paper sponsor form.
Facebook Fundraiser – You can set up a Facebook fundraising page by clicking here.
We also have our great Facebook Group for our fundraisers where you can share ideas and progress. This is also where we post upcoming fundraising opportunities. Either search on Facebook for ‘FYF Fundraising’ or click here to request to join.
FYF Merchandise – If you’d like to kit yourself out with some branded FYF gear for your event, as an FYF fundraiser you get 10% off anything on our webshop. Just click here to go to the shop and use code FUNDRAISER10 at the checkout.
Have a look at some of our suggestions below if you haven’t decided what you’d like to do. Or how about something more adventurous? What about climbing Kilimanjaro or Everest? Doing a skydive? Abseil? Zip slide? Wing walk? What about a night in a haunted house? Or conquer a fear and hold a tarantula?
There are also lots of organised events all over the UK and further afield which you can take part in. Walks, runs, treks, climbs, cycles, duathlons, triathlons etc. Check out 2 FYF favourites and speak to Lee at Breaking Strain Events or Ricky at Inspire Alpine for some inspiration.
