You could host a coffee morning,tea party, boot sale, bake cakes to sell at school or work, shave your hair off, have a dress down day or fancy dress day at work, run a mini marathon or organise a sponsored swim or bike ride.
We first came across Strongbones many years ago when Megan was tiny. We were still getting our heads around the fact our little girl would never walk. We knew of no other children like Megan and it was a scary time.
A friend recommended contacting Strongbones to see if they could help provide Megan with a trike so she could play with her brother and get about without a wheelchair. We have made some amazing friends and got great support from other families and April, Rachael and all the team. I can honestly say our lives changed forever after that first email.”

Set up a JustGiving fundraising page
We suggest you set up a fundraising page on JustGiving. Fundraising pages are just like paper sponsorship forms, except they’re online, so you don’t have to spend time collecting cash and cheques.
Just personalise your page with a photo and message and email the web address to all your contacts and you can link it to Facebook. Then your friends, family, colleagues and anyone else can make a donation through your page from anywhere in the world.
You can create a fundraising page for absolutely anything. You could get sponsored to run, swim, cycle, get fit, grow a moustache or have your head shaved. You can even create a page in memory of someone or instead of wedding gifts. The only limit is your imagination.
