 Raise money for AKPA with JustGiving

 

 

AKPA has joined up with JustGiving, the online fundraising and sponsorship website, to make raising money quicker, easier and more effective.

 

Whether you are celebrating a transplant, running a marathon or simply taking donations for a birthday or wedding anniversary, you can set up your own personalised JustGiving fundraising page to tell everyone what you are doing and why you are raising money for AKPA. It only takes 60 seconds! The JustGiving team then gives you everything you need to reach more sponsors faster.

 

You can also make a one-off or regular donation to AKPA via JustGiving.

 

Also, JustGiving will collect Gift Aid from any eligible donors, enhancing any donation by up to 28%. The donation is a 100% secure, spam-free experience. They will never sell or share your personal details and won’t try to sell you anything.

 How do we raise our funds?

 

This is mainly down to members of AKPA, their families and friends, with help over the years from many other individuals and organisations who have taken an interest in our work.

 

To achieve our aims we constantly need to raise money and the range of sources is wide:

• Sponsored events, such as cycle rides, golf tournaments, clay-pigeon shoots, walks, swims, even a vintage tractor rally.

• Charity entertainment events such as dances and concerts, coffee mornings, art sales and car boot sales.

• Street and supermarket collections, and charity boxes in shops etc.

• Christmas card sales.

• Annual subscriptions.

• Seasonal craft and bric-a-brac stalls.

• Our Christmas raffle.

• A '200 Club' with monthly draws. (Click for details)

• Bequests, legacies and donations in memory.
