STEPPING IT UP


In the summertime we all feel more inclined to be out and about. So why not attend a free festival and bank what you have saved, or get fit and raise money for a good cause?

Whether it’s running or swimming five kilometres, skydiving from 10,000 feet, climbing Ben Nevis or cycling from London to Paris, there are countless UK events that you can get involved in and have fun, while raising money for charity.


GET GOING Fundraising for a charity is easy and there are many online platforms - like justgiving. org, virginmoneygiving.com and doitforcharity.org - that facilitate this. Simply pick an event, choose your charity and enter your details – voila! your friends can start donating. Your efforts could help combat cancer, support the elderly or homeless, among other good causes. If you don’t fancy doing it alone, find out if there is a fundraisng group at school you can join.


SOME SPORTY WAYS TO SHARE Run for It Of all the sporty charity events out there, fun runs and marathons tend to get the most exposure. While running the London Marathon may be the ultimate, adrenalin boosting, fundraising experience, it doesn’t have to be that serious. If you are fit and healthy, there are plenty of five to ten kilometre runs to take part in. Check out: therunningbug.co.uk or bigfunrun.com


Making a Splash This year’s Swimathon, the world’s biggest, nationwide fundraising swim for Marie Curie Cancer Care, is over. Although the 2014 charity partner is yet to be announced, people are already signing up for Swimathon 2014. This event encourages swimmers of all abilities to set a realistic goal and achieve it – all for a good cause. Check out: swimathon.org
