Bridgnorth Lions Walk And Marathon : Fundraising
The Bridgnorth Walk is all about raising money for charity or other good causes.
You are expected to gain sponsorship for taking part in the Walk.
- You will need to print out a sponsorship form to collect sponsor pledges. A link will be provided on your registration confirmation email. If you are having difficulty, please contact us at .
- You can also use an online fundraising website but please include these monies as a summary line on your sponsorship form. We can then include this in our calculations of the total money raised. Please be aware some websites charge an admin fee. A comparison of the various online giving sites is available from Money Saving Expert.
Runners pay a higher fee than walkers, which not only helps towards the additional cost of running the event but also includes a contribution towards Bridgnorth Lions charity funds. However, if runners feel that they also wish to raise funds for their own chosen charities they are welcome to do so. They can download a sponsorship form from this website.
Qualifying charities and organisations
Any local or national charity or charitable organisation including schools, churches, sports clubs and voluntary community projects are eligible. If you are in any doubt whether your organisation qualifies, please contact us at .
Some charities will qualify for gift aid. On the sponsor form you can identify which sponsors are UK taxpayers and wish to have gift aid applied to their sponsorship. Make sure you have postcodes from these sponsors. Claims for reimbursement of gift aid are made by the charity. Some charities may prefer you to use their sponsor forms, if you do this, please let us know on walk day what the amount is.
Distribution of Money Raised
It is the responsibility of the walkers to collect sponsorship money and pay it directly to their charity.
Teams leaders should arrange for all the money raised to be paid to their nominated charity or organisation.
Individuals should pay their money directly to their charity or organisation.
