There are many ways to support charities, one is by running. It really is easy to just do what you love and raise money for a worthy cause at the same time. There are thousands of charities in the UK and many are very good causes, in fact so many it really is not easy to choose.

Thousands of runners decide to create a crowdfunding page to raise money for a charity or cause close to home. Which is a fabulous idea is an online donating platform, who do not charge fees to charities. You can ask them to create a page for any cause you wish, or tell them the cause you wish to raise money for. All that is left is for you to spread the word via social media and friends.

You could make a one off payment of say 50 pounds toย Demelza but if you set up a crowdfunding page withย you will raise so much more, and could get 25% extra in gift aid. We used the website and then visited Demelza, as one of our guests had raised money for the children's hospice.
