Fundraising Ideas

From running a marathon to holding a coffee morning, there’s a fundraising idea that will work for you!  Here’s some inspiration to get you started!

To make your fundraising even easier, Mercy in Action has teamed up with Just Giving and MyDonate so you can raise money quickly and easily online with your own personal webpage.  Friends and family will be able to donate online with a credit or debit card.  To set up a page with either or both websites, simply click on the buttons below.

Make a page with JustGiving       

Please do consider using these excellent facilities, as we receive the money almost immediately and our own admin costs are greatly reduced.

Alternatively, if you require a paper sponsorship form, you can download a sponsorship form HERE.
