How we fundraise

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 fundraising 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 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. Contact Geoff Bland by phone at 01226 245811 or email gbland7@protonmail.com

JustGiving

We are very grateful to everyone who raises money for the Branch.  Many of you choose to do this via your JustGiving or other online sites. 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. If you are setting up a JustGiving page you can choose to join the South Yorkshire Branch Team using the link

https://www.justgiving.com/teams/South-Yorkshire-Branch

2. To ensure that your fundraising is transferred to the South Yorkshire Branch, you 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 contact our Regional Fundraiser Jenn Dodd by email jenn.dodd@mndassociation.org with a copy to branch treasurer, Paul Hebblethwaite (paulh@haywoodandco.com) or ringing Jenn on  0113 483 0706 or Paul on 0114 236 3222

Please note that it must be you who makes this notification; the Branch cannot do it on your behalf and it is important to do this at the time of setting up.

If you have any questions or concerns about this, please don’t hesitate to email Paul or call him on 0114 268 1441. Thanks for following this process and many thanks for all your support.
