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.

Ellie - Woodhorn Museum Triathlon
Together with her family Ellie will be taking part in the Woodhorn Museum Triathlon, a demanding task which includes a 1.5km swim , a 46km cycle and 9.6km run!
Ellie said, 'I have chosen to fundraise for The Psoriasis Association as this is something quite personal to me. I have previously encountered random flare ups of psoriasis on and off for the last 4 years, this is currently incurable and consists of red patchy itchy skin which can last for months (hence me and high neck tops= 🤝), sadly there is no curable solution as it just goes away when it wants to.
This chosen charity not only does research to find a cure and raise awareness of the condition , but also helps other suffers who particularity struggle to deal with going about a normal everyday life, so it’s important for me as any donations could make such a large impact on other people's wellbeing, any change would be greatly appreciated.'
We're wishing Ellie and her family the best of luck! If you'd like to help support their challenge you can donate here.
Elliot & Alice - Richmond RunFest Marathon
Elliot and his fiancé, Alice, are partnering up to take on the Richmond RunFest Marathon on the 11th September 2022.
Elliot said, 'Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition that has a variety of physical and psychological consequences. I experience unpredictable outbreaks of rashes that appear across a wide area of my body but particularly on my arms, legs and scalp. It took me almost 2 years to get diagnosed with psoriasis and during this period I dealt with extended spells of anxiety and low confidence. I have found that there is a lot of stigma towards people who suffer with skin problems that they are self-inflicted due to lifestyle habits or poor hygiene etc. This is almost always not the case.'
We're wishing Elliot and Alice the best of luck! If you'd like to learn more about their reasons for fundraising or donate, click here.
Lilly - Charity Quiz Night
Lilly is holding a charity quiz night on the 3rd June to raise awareness of psoriasis! Lilly has been experiencing psoriasis symptoms for the past 6 months and says her patches can be itchy and painful.

Ray - London Marathon
Serial marathon runner, Ray, is taking part in his third London Marathon this year, and we're delighted he has chosen to support the Psoriasis Association.
Ray said, 'I have decided to raise money for The Psoriasis Association. If you didn't know psoriasis is a skin condition that affects 2% of the British population. As a sufferer myself it is very personal and although my psoriasis is not chronic it still affects me every day. There is no cure and episodes can flare up at any time, so any donations would be most welcome for ongoing research.'
He claims the 2nd October race will be his last marathon ever, but we're not so convinced! If you'd like to support Ray's challenge visit his fundraising page.
