Fundraising for the Sussex MS Centre
Fundraising is hugely important in raising the vital funds that enable us to open our doors each day here at the Centre.
Sussex MS Centre receives no funding from statutory bodies, and so we rely on the donations of members, charitable trusts, grant bodies, funds raised by community groups, and of course the support of individuals taking on sponsored events and challenges for the Centre.
Each year the Centre organises a series of fundraising events, which include our annual sponsored bike ride, sponsored walk and sponsored abseil or sky dive and more. Our Centre organised events are always local, and an enjoyable way for both members and friends of the Centre to raise funds.
We are enormously grateful to the troop of incredible fundraisers that take on individual challenges, or organise independent fundraisers for the Centre each year. We encourage anybody that would like to set up an individual fundraiser to get in contact for tips and ideas and our support officer will then do all they can to support you from beginning to end!
We would love to hear from you if you would like to take on a challenge for the Centre. Here are some examples of the types of sponsored challenges that people have been inspired to take on in the past:
- Running events- choose your distance! We regularly have individuals taking on 10km runs, half marathons and full marathons
- Obstacle challenges, such as Tough Mudder or Rough Runner- these events are great if would like to rally a team to get stuck in together
Or perhaps you would like to organise your own fundraising event to raise funds for our wonderful Centre. In the past we have had individual fundraisers organise comedy nights, music events, a bridge afternoon, coffee mornings, golf tournaments, jumble/bric-a-brac sales, plant and cake sales and so much more!
We would love to hear from you if you would like to get involved with fundraising for the Centre.
Please email Ali on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01273 594484 for more information on upcoming Centre organised events, or for support in setting up your own challenge or fundraiser.
