Fundraising

You can donate and help us raise funds immediately here, or

if you would like to organise your own fundraising event for FAVOR UK, then we would like to make this as easy as possible for you.

Who knows you may want to hold a dance, have a party or even jump out of a plane. You could raise funds for your organisation and cover the costs of a bus or accommodation for family and friends attending the next UK Recovery Walk. Whatever way you decide to raise funds we will all benefit and be grateful.

What to do:

  1. Register your event using this online form.  Once you have submitted the form we will send you a fundraising pack which will contain The UK Recovery Walk logo to use for your publicity.
  2. Set up your own Charity fundraising page follow the link below. This will allow your friends and family to sponsor you at the click of a button, and you can easily keep track of your progress.

Once your page is set up, My Donate will tell you how to share your page with your friends and family.

A few very important things to consider

When you are fundraising for FAVOR UK, you are acting “in aid of” or “supporting” FAVOR Charity, rather than “on behalf of” or “representing” FAVOR UK Charity. This means that you are independent of FAVOR UK Charity and what you do does not fall under FAVOR UK Charity’s control. We have special “in aid of” or “supports” logos that we will send you once your event is registered.

Please make sure that any fundraising materials or publicity you use includes the following:
In aid of/Supports FAVOR Charity: Registered Charity: SC043961

And ensure you have permission to use any images or text. Some material is available without copyright instructions, but do not assume that all materials are copyright free.

Legalities

FAVOR UK cannot take responsibility for what you do as a volunteer when you are fundraising “in aid of” FAVOR UK Charity.

It is not acceptable to collect money in the street or do house to house collections in the name of FAVOR UK Charity so please don’t do this guys.

For certain events, such as raffles, lotteries or public entertainment you may need a licence or permission from the local authority so be careful.

Insurance and Safety

FAVOR UK Charity cannot accept liability for your event, so please make sure that you have appropriate insurance in place for the activity or event you are carrying out. Check whether your chosen venue has insurance in place that will cover what you are planning.

Please think about the safety of yourself and those attending your event and make sure you carry out risk assessments for your fundraising event. You will find useful information on the Health and Safety Executive website.

In particular, where children, young people or vulnerable adults are involved, this should include an appropriate level of safeguarding preparation and adult supervision, checking children have permission from their parents or guardians, and carrying out appropriate background checks if adults are to have unsupervised access to children.

Please help us to help others become well again and to show the nation that people can and do recover.
