From sponsored runs to film nights and cake sales, fundraising is a brilliant way to support our charity.

Your fundraising will raise the money that’s crucial to help Marmalade Trust support some of the loneliest people in our region to make connections and have fun. It will also help us run national and international campaigns to raise awareness about loneliness across all sections of society. And it can be fun and rewarding – you get to choose exactly what you do!


Step 1 

Choose what to do

You can get sponsored for whatever challenge or activity you choose (check out our ideas here!). If you’d rather not go down the sponsorship route, you could hold a cake sale, coffee morning, or make items to sell and donate the proceeds to Marmalade Trust.


Step 2 

Register your event

Head to our fundraising page or make your own on Facebook or JustGiving - it’s easy for you to collect sponsors and donations. If you hold a sale or raise money another way, you can transfer it after the event by clicking this link.


Step 3 

Spread the word

Email us - we’d love to support you if we can, say thank you, and maybe share your story on our website. Shout from the rooftops, use social media, or send an email to tell everyone you know about your fundraiser, and ask for their support.
