We raise funds to enable us to provide practical help and information to people with MND, and to fund research. We receive no national or local government funding and are entirely reliant on our own fund raising efforts and the generosity of our supporters.
The South Yorkshire Branch fundraising group comprises of a small number of volunteers who organise a range of events for the branch each year. They welcome any help and support, no matter how little time you have to spare. Fundraising by others on behalf of the branch is important and really helps us to respond positively to all the funding requests we receive. Tell us about what you're planning and see if we can help.

We are very grateful to everyone who raises money for the Branch. Many of you choose to do this via your own JustGiving or other online sites. In order to ensure that the money comes through to the Branch, it is important that you please follow these simple guidelines:
1. When setting up a fund-raising page, the fundraiser (that’s you!) can only choose to raise money for charities registered on the online giving website, in our case this is the MND Association.
2. The online site will then send the money to the MND Association national office. To ensure that it is transferred on to the Branch, you need to let our Regional Fundraiser, Mandy Metcalfe know in writing that you want the money to come to the Branch. This can be done by email to email@example.com. Please copy our Treasurer, Paul Hebblethwaite (firstname.lastname@example.org) into your email, so that he can follow-up for us.
Please note that it must be you who makes this notification; the Branch cannot do it on your behalf. Please email Mandy at the same time as setting up the site, so that there is no confusion or delay.
3. You also need to specify that you are fundraising for the Branch within the main body of the text on your fund-raising page, when it is set up. This is because, by law, all donors must be fully aware, at the time of giving, if the money they are donating is to go to a specific branch.
If you have any questions or concerns about this, please don't hesitate to email Paul or call him on 0114 2681441. Thanks for following this process and many thanks for all your support.
