A man in a Shelter vest gives thumbs up running a race.

Thanks to fundraisers like you, 15,555 households received support from our emergency helpline last year.

Every mile run, every drop of sweat, and every pound raised will make a difference.

'The Royal Parks Half is a brilliant event, not to mention running for a great cause! It was a hot day but the Shelter cheer squad at mile six spurred me on.'

– Toby, who ran the Royal Parks Half Marathon with his teammates from PEI Group

Frequently asked questions

How do I fundraise for my event?

We're here to help with any fundraising queries and are more than happy to talk through ideas with you. We recommend starting by setting up a fundraising page on JustGiving.

Our top fundraising ideas include bake sales and pub quizzes. You can find all our fundraising resources here, including our paper sponsorship form.

Reaching my fundraising pledge

We’re here to support you with your fundraising as much as possible. Get in touch by emailing or call us on 0344 515 1190.

Not reaching your fundraising pledge impacts what Shelter can achieve, so please make sure you're confident in reaching this target before signing up. The deadline for sending in the funds you've raised is six weeks after event day.

Raising a minimum fundraising pledge

It's important to raise a minimum fundraising pledge, as we invest in places at charity events. Each place is important to ensure we raise as much as possible to support our vital work.

You can reach your pledge through sponsorship from family, friends and colleagues, plus other forms of fundraising such as bake sales or quizzes.
