Raise money

Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event - it's the money that you raise which helps fund our life saving research. All Santas are asked to please raise as much sponsorship as they can.

The easiest way to fundraise is to create an online fundraising page via JustGiving. Share your page on Facebook, Twitter and by email so your family and friends can sponsor you.

Take a look at our fundraising guide for more inspirational ideas to boost your fundraising.
