Before getting started, you can find some inspiration for fundraising events by having a look at our 101 fundraising ideas or our A-Z of virtual fundraising ideas. From cake bakes to casino nights, you can find any advice and tips you might need in organising your event.
Tell us about your event
You can also tell us about an event you're organising (i.e. a ball, bake sale etc.), using our online form, to receive support from your regional Community Fundraiser as well as any additional fundraising materials.
Make it legal
Be sure to make your event safe and legal, and insured if necessary. Part of event safety is minimising the risk of cross-infection between people with cystic fibrosis, so take a look at our cross-infection policy for events.
Paying in funds
The easiest way to collect money is by online sponsorship. Simply go to Just Giving to set up your own online fundraising page. Once you're up and running you can email the link to your family, friends and colleagues, and all donations will be sent to us automatically.
See our Just Giving Page.
For fundraising events, you can also find details on how to pay us in funds.

Finally, make sure to snap plenty of photos of your event! Check out our tips and tricks on how to photograph your event.
