As well as our own Aching Arms campaigns, we are delighted that many people choose their own ways to raise money for us.

From cake sales to sponsored swims, we are here to help and support you every step of the way with whatever fundraising event you choose. How about raising money for Aching Arms by taking on a new personal challenge? It can be an individual challenge, or take the opportunity to invite family, friends and colleagues to form a team. A major city marathon, a 10k run, a country cycle, an adventurous abseil, a hillside walk or a mountain trek. You can be as creative as you’d like!

Using an Online Fundraising Page

Our supporters often find that using an online fundraising page is a helpful way of collecting donations and sponsorship money - it's a quick and easy way to share details of your fundraising challenge with family, friends, colleagues and contacts. You can customise the profile photo and header image on your page, share your story and why Aching Arms is a charity close to your heart, give an overview of your challenge and share updates after completing the event. Aching Arms is established on platforms called Enthuse and JustGiving.

For Enthuse, please click here and then go to 'Fundraise for us'. 

For JustGiving, please click here  and then go to 'Fundraise for us'.

Both platforms create a unique URL/link for your fundraising page that can easily be shared via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and/or email. You can even create a QR code from your fundraising page to include on posters or flyers that promote your fundraising event.

My Aching Arms bear is a physical comfort to hug and hold; a reminder that I am not alone and a hope that my daughter Erin has little friends by her side.
