Raise Sponsorship for Lingen Davies Cancer Fund

Asking people to sponsor you to complete a challenge, or event, is a great way to raise money for Lingen Davies! There’s lots of challenge events all over the country that you might like to get involved in…running, cycling, swimming, triathlon and much more!

You can set up your own fundraising page here. You’ll need to create an account, or sign in with facebook. Once you’re all set up, you can share this fundraising page on social media and ask people to support you! You might like to say something like:

“I’m doing/taking part in (your challenge) to raise money for Lingen Davies Cancer Fund. They are a charity who raise money to support cancer services in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales. The funds raised by the charity support cancer prevention programmes and projects that help people to live well with or after cancer.  Fund equipment, buildings and people to make early cancer diagnoses, treatment and support quicker and even more effective. Please give as much or as little as you can.”

If you’re fundraising for more than one charity, you’ll need to set up your fundraising page here instead. Please try to avoid fundraising on facebook as it’s very hard for us to track the donations people give you…so we’re not able to thank you for your hard work and generosity!

We love to hear who is taking part in challenges and raising sponsorship. Please get in contact on hello@lingendavies.co.uk to tell us about your efforts! We’ll also be able to share your story on our social media pages, to help you raise even more!

Organise a Fundraising Event for Lingen Davies

Organising your own fundraising event, in aid of Lingen Davies, is a wonderful way to support the charity and contribute to funding our projects. Our friendly team are happy to help with providing posters, tickets and flyers, as well as promoting your event on our website and social media channels.

Fundraising events could include a bake sale, charity ball, themed evening, tractor run, 24hr ‘athon’ of your favourite hobby, music event…this list is endless! Give us a call to discuss your ideas and we’ll help however we can.

You can also download our Guide to Fundraising to help you with planning your event, and sticking to some fundraising regulations. There are other fundraiser stories in there too, to help you feel inspired!

Key Things to Remember When Organising a Fundraising Event

  • Choose a date – remember to give yourself enough time to organise your event. Find out when other big events are going on in the area so you don’t clash.
  • Choose a venue – make sure it has all the facilities you require and ask if you need a licence for your type of event.
  • Make sure you are aware of what costs you will incur and when. You need to plan how to cover your costs (e.g. how many tickets need to be sold.) It’s fine to ask people to donate goods and services to a charity event!
  • Make sure you have all the help you need to run the event – check everyone is free on the chosen date.
  • If you are running a raffle please ensure you have carefully read the raffle guidelines in our Guide to Fundraising – page 4. If you are planning to run a draw with pre-printed tickets you will also need to abide by our Terms and Conditions, which you can find here.
  • Contact the Fundraising Office on 01743 492396 or hello@lingendavies.co.uk, to discuss your fundraising idea, or fill in the event form below. We love talking to our supporters to see how we can help you make the most of your fundraising.
  • The Fundraising Office is happy to help and with publicity material, as well as sponsor forms and letters of authority. We can lend you collection cans, buckets, banners and more for the day(s) of your fundraising – just get in touch!
