Want to raise even more money?

With every pound you raise, you are funding new research, providing precious support to more people, and bringing us closer to a world without dementia. So let’s get fundraising! Take a look at our fundraising guide for lots of tips.

Target: We recommend trying to raise at least £150 for your Memory Walk. The more the better! 

We strongly advise setting up a JustGiving page as soon as possible. Have a look at our JustGiving FAQ to find out more.

Fundraising ideas

Raise sponsorship online

Setting up your own JustGiving page is the easiest way to raise money. Just share the link to your JustGiving page with friends, family and colleagues. It’s exciting to see everyone’s words of encouragement and all the donations you’ve inspired coming in. Just keep plugging your page in order to reach your target.

Raise some dough (literally)

Who doesn’t love a good bake sale? They’re a really easy, effective (and tasty) way to boost your fundraising total. Host one at work and get your colleagues to bake too. Or get your neighbours involved and set up shop somewhere local. Just a few hours work can make a huge difference.

Raise money at work

Dress down days, or a simple collection are brilliant ways to boost your total and spread the word. Many companies offer matched giving programmes and will double the amount you raise, so it’s definitely worth asking.
