Fundraising for Us

Our Regular Supporters

At any one time we have many fundraising projects underway. We get a great deal of support from individuals who raise money on their own as well as regular donors. 'Kids Like Us' is run by a committee of volunteers who ensure every penny goes towards supporting children in our community who live with arthritis everyday. We're grateful for your ongoing support and donations to help us continue with our work.

The work we do would not be possible without the people who support us.  If you would like to get involved with fundraising for Kids Like Us there are any number of ways you could help.  In return we promise that we will put the money you raise to good us, directly supporting children and families affected by Juvenile Arthritis.

Here are a few ideas, based on what people have done for us in the past:

- Run a marathon or do a fun run

- Adopt us as your charity for your next sponsored event

- Organise a cake sale

- Organise a quiz night 

- Sponsored silence (especially good for


- Non-Uniform Day (with the schools


- Golf days

- Adopt us as your 'Christmas Charity' and donate instead of work colleagues sending cards to each other (and save paper in the process)

We have some amazing people who work with us regularly, and those who are always there to provide support in our fundraising.  The people we would like to thank are many more than on the list below, and we would appreciate any and all donations made to our great cause.
