Fundraise for us
All those who generously give up their time to support the Psoriasis Association by fundraising and raising awareness play a vital role in helping us to continue with our work.
The Psoriasis Association is the leading national charity working for people with psoriasis and all donations received help to sustain our work in supporting people affected by psoriasis, raising awareness of the condition and funding research projects.
We are reliant on donations to be able to continue with our work so, as you can imagine, the efforts of those who agree to raise funds on our behalf is very much appreciated.
We are truly amazed by people’s efforts and different ways they support us!
Whatever the event, we can provide you with promotional materials, sponsorship forms if required and a t-shirt or running vest. Every pound makes a difference and helps the Psoriasis Association support people with psoriasis, their families and carers.

Shakira - Cycling 200km in March
Davinia - Yoga classes
Davinia, a certified yoga teacher, will be hosting free yoga classes to raise awareness of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis via Zoom and Facebook Live. She will also be giving up wheat and alcohol throughout February in a bid to raise funds for the Psoriasis Association.
She said 'The more information we share, the better, and raising money for a cause is something that I'm always happy to do. It's the first time I have raised money for this or any other charity related with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, I guess, because I didn't feel comfortable enough to talk about it. Now I am and I want to help others.'
Stacey - walking 150 miles in January
Our fundraiser, Stacey, recently took on the challenge of walking 150 miles in January. Having smashed her target, she has now decided to cover 200 miles in February, with the view to continue raising the distance walked over the coming months.
Stacey found that walking through the scenic countryside in her local area was beneficial for her mental health and psoriasis, and decided to take the opportunity to raise money for the Psoriasis Association at the same time!
Louisa- Three Peaks Challenge
In June next year Louisa will be taking on the daunting Three Peaks Challenge which will see her climb the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales, covering a distance of 23 miles and a total ascent of 3064 metres (10,052ft).
Louisa says this will be the biggest challenge of her life yet, second only to living with psoriasis.
Anna- Great North Run
Our fundraiser Anna will be taking on the Great North Run half marathon in 2021 to raise awareness of psoriasis.
Anna was diagnosed with the condition in 2017 when she was 20 years old and has tried a number of treatments to manage the condition including topical treatments, light therapy and methotrexate.
She said 'After around 5 weeks of taking the methotrexate, my psoriasis is now almost fully cleared. I am currently prescribed the drug for life in order to keep the condition at bay.
I’m hoping that me taking part in the Great North Run and sharing my story helps raise awareness of psoriasis and that the donations I receive can go to helping others suffering from the same illness I am.'
Annie & Family- Total Warrior
Annie, who is also fundraising for us as part of the Edge Hill Netball Team, had planned to take on the daunting challenge of the Total Warrior with her family in June. Whilst 2020's event has been postponed Annie will still be taking part in next year.
Annie has psoriasis and has been incredibly supportive of the Psoriasis Association, as has her mum Julie, who kindly fundraised for us last year.
The course will see Annie and her family complete a 12k circuit littered with 25 challenging obstacles, including 'The Plunge', 'The Shocker' and 'The Human BBQ'. Scary stuff!
Edge Hill Netball Team
Edge Hill Netball Team has kindly chosen the Psoriasis Association as their nominated charity throughout the year 2019-2020, and will be putting on a variety of events and challenges to raise money.
The team has chosen to support the Psoriasis Association as one of their players, Annie, suffers with the condition.
She says 'The Psoriasis Association is something very close to my heart and my family, not only at home but my uni family too. Psoriasis is something that not many people know the true facts about, therefore we are raising money to support the vital research that they do to find new and improved treatments for this skin condition, and to fund essential support through blogs, pages and social media. This is what helped me while I was having a hard time trying to get it under control.'
So far the team have attended training in our charity colours, and painted themselves for a match to highlight Psoriasis Awareness Week 2019.
