Right from the beginning, 500 miles has been extremely fortunate to have benefitted from the many and varied, imaginative, energetic, exciting and sometimes eye-watering fundraising activities that our supporters have taken on, arranged – and carried through. We have also been thankful to enjoy wonderful participation in 500 miles’ own large fundraisers: Miles for Smiles in 2009, The BIG Dinner in 2015 and The Malawi Cycle in 2018.
If you’d like to organise your own event or fundraising activity and would like to tell us about it or ask for advice, get in touch and we’ll provide any advice we can – and we’ll make sure that people hear about it via this website and our newsletters.
If you would like to collect donations for your activity online, Virgin Money Giving* and JustGiving both offer secure and easy ways to set this up. Just go to our Virgin Money Giving page or JustGiving page and follow the instructions. If you need a sponsor form for any kind of event or challenge, you can download a generic sponsorship form here.
*Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and is therefore the more cost effective of these two online options.
We rely on you to fundraise for us to keep funds coming in. We could not do what we do without your help!
