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 and donate it to 'Kids Like Us'.
We are very grateful to everyone who supports us, from the individual donation of pocket money to those who run the marathon, we make every penny count.
Some recent stories:
Kirsty our Chair has raised £75 so far by making and selling cakes at her workplace, luckily her colleagues have very sweet teeth!
Molly, one of our JIA warriors raised £150 by selling Reindeer food x
Fundraising for Us
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)
