Fundraising

Join our PsoTeam for the London 10k on Sunday 21st July!

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.

Get some inspiration by taking a look at some of the challenges our current fundraisers are taking on, as well as those that have been completed by past fundraisers. Don't forget to check out a few fundraising event ideas too!

Cath - Lady Captaincy at Golf Club

Cath will be Lady Captain at her golf club this year and she's generously chosen the Psoriasis Association as her nominated charity.

She says “I will be Lady Captain at my Golf Club for 2019 and will have a few fundraising golf days throughout the year. I have 2 sons who suffer from psoriasis and one of whom it has had quite a psychological effect which was heart-breaking to see. They are now doing extremely well but I’d like to raise money and awareness for the Psoriasis Association over the coming year.”

Matthew - Yeovil Half Marathon

Having recently completed the Weymouth Bay 10k in support of the Psoriasis Association, Matthew has wasted no time in signing up for his next running challenge - the Yeovil Half Marathon on 31st March.

He says 'For those of you who know me, you will know that I have suffered from severe psoriasis for the last 13 years, at times with it covering up to 95% of my body. After recently finding a treatment which has helped clear my skin dramatically, I took part in the Weymouth 10K.

I have now decided to challenge myself further so am now attempting the Yeovil Half Marathon to raise more money for this amazing charity. 

Please donate generously to this cause to support this Association who do so much to support those affected by psoriasis and are constantly doing research to find ways to help them. Thank you'.

Jess - Tough Mudder

This April, Jess will be taking on a 5k Tough Mudder obstacle course for the very first time - all in support of the Psoriasis Association!

She says 'I am 17 years old and have suffered from psoriasis since a very young age. By completing the Tough Mudder I want to raise money for the Association in the aim of understanding the condition more, hopefully one day finding a way that psoriasis will have little impact on my life, stopping me from doing nothing!!'

Tom - Sheffield Half Marathon

In order to support the Psoriasis Association, Tom has decided to take on the Sheffield Half Marathon on 14th April.

He says 'I'm an ex-footballer, keen cyclist and avid walker but I've never been a keen runner (apart from one 10-miler many moons ago). However, having moved to Sheffield from London last year, I was trying to find a way to motivate myself to keep active up north without stepping into the gym again. So, I decided to sign up to my first half marathon (as you do) and I'll be running the Sheffield Half Marathon on 14th April 2019! Although I've been living with guttate psoriasis for the past 7 years, I've never engaged with others in the psoriasis community but I wanted to use this event to raise awareness for the condition and help the Psoriasis Association continue to support others, like myself, with psoriasis.'

Helen - Great Bristol 10k

This May, Helen will be lacing up her running shoes to take part in the Great Bristol 10k in support of the Psoriasis Association.

She says 'I was diagnosed with psoriasis about 5 years ago, mainly affecting my face, scalp and torso. I have recently found exercise, particularly running, has been extremely beneficial to my wellbeing and my symptoms have been relieved. I no longer feel as self-conscious about my psoriasis and would love to assist in raising funds and awareness.'

Fundraising Ideas

Fundraising Event Ideas

There are many ways of fundraising for the Psoriasis Association. Whilst some feel sporty and take on physical challenges, others may decide to take a less active option and organise a social event. Any way that you raise funds and awareness will make a difference and help people with psoriasis.

For Foodies

Everyone loves a treat now and then, so what could be better than organising a Coffee Morning or Afternoon Tea with sumptuous cakes, scones, sandwiches and biscuits that everyone can feast on? You could even organise a raffle.

Another idea is a cheese and wine evening or curry night. Invite your friends and family to join you. Ask everyone to bring a small sample of food if you want. What about organising a meal in with friends and ask them to either bring either a starter, main or dessert? 

There’s footie and rugby pizza supper with friends. Invite your mates to watch a game, order the pizza, get a few drinks in and donate a few pounds each to the Psoriasis Association. The more friends the better and the possibilities are endless! 

Celebrate a special occasion


Whether it’s a birthday, an anniversary or even a wedding, why not ask friends and family to make a donation to the Psoriasis Association in lieu of gifts and cards?

Physical Challenge Ideas

For the Fit and Adventurous

Do you run for fun or to keep fit? Are you looking for a new challenge? A sponsored run could be great fun. You may know of a local event that you could join, or google ‘The Running Bug’ and search for an event. You can choose from 5k, 10k, half-marathon, marathon, under 6 miles and over 6 miles. 

Maybe, you would like to walk? Not all of us are runners but many of us enjoy a walk in the countryside, especially in the summer months. There are lots of organised walking events. To find a walk in your area you can visit Ramble On. Increasingly, country parks and Forestry Commission sites set up marked walks for the public to follow and indicate the distance to be covered. Why not do a sponsored walk at your favourite park or forest, or what about a coastal walk?

Cycling

Cycling is an excellent way to get fit and to keep healthy with regular exercise. Many people are now taking to cycling. There are numerous cycle rides maintained by local councils in their parks, and cycle trails through the national

Forestry Commission sites.

If you would like to enter an organised cycling event near to you or around the UK check out UK Cycling Events  or British Cycling

Obstacle Courses

These are the latest craze and these events are held all over the UK. The best way to find an event near you is to search on google. Tough Mudder, for example, is a 10-12 mile mud and obstacle course which will certainly drag you out of your comfort zone. They test your physical strength, stamina, and mental grit. It’s not about how fast you can cross the finish line, it’s rather, can you cross the line and finish the challenge which relies on camaraderie, true grit and determination?

When you have registered for your event, let us know and we’ll then provide you with support throughout your challenge.
