Remember to register your event!
Don't forget to let us know about your fundraising event. Just fill out our event registration form (PDF) and send it to your local fundraising office.
Make sure your event is safe and legal
Whatever kind of event you're organising, there are some key things you may need to consider, from carrying out risk assessments to arranging insurance and transferring funds securely. Find out more in our guide to making your event safe and legal (PDF).
Get your message across
It's important you make it clear what you're doing - and why. If you are raising sponsorship money, always include information about the event you are taking part in and why you've taken on the challenge. Make sure your message is on all the materials you're producing and at the event itself.
You can also try to include as much information on Mencap as you can. You can:
- find information about us on our brand page
- volunteer fundraisers can download our logo for fundraisers
- contact us for up-to-date examples of our campaigns and services to show where the money you are raising will go.
Don't forget the events team can also provide fundraising materials such as balloons, collection tins and posters for your fundraising event. For more information, please contact your local fundraising office.
Sending your money
Once your event is over, please complete our fund payment form (PDF) and send it, with the money you've raised, to your local fundraising office.
Who to contact
For extra advice and support in organising your own event, please contact your local fundraising office.
