With a low minimum sponsorship, this is the perfect festival event to get involved with, all whilst supporting seriously ill children and their families.

As well as asking friends, family and colleagues for donations, you can also organise extra fundraising activities to reach your goal. When you sign up, you’ll receive a fundraising pack which has loads of ideas to help get you started. It’s split into two sections; covering quick fundraising ideas for busy people and larger fundraising activities such as setting up a pub quiz.

We are always here to help support you in reaching your goal, so feel free to get in touch with us any time. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the events team on
