Challenge 1739 FAQs

A note on Coronavirus: we ask that you please carefully consider the Government’s official guidance when choosing your fundraising challenge. 

Do you have a question for our fundraising team? Take a look at our fundraising FAQs below and we may be able to answer it for you. If you don't see the questions you need to ask, then call our fundraising team on 020 7749 7976 or email challengeyourself@coram.org.uk  

How do I sign up?

It’s really simple! Just head to our event registration page. You can set up your fundraising page from there. 

How can I spread the word to help with my fundraising?

Share your fundraising page with family, friends and colleagues by sending the link to them on Whatsapp or email. You can also easily share your fundraising page on social media by clicking on the Facebook and Twitter icons on your page. Why not raise awareness at the same time by sharing some of the Coram posts on social media. You could even reach out to your local press to tell them your story and why you are raising awareness or funds for Coram. If you need support with this then let us know on challengeyourself@coram.org.uk

Can I take on Challenge 1739 with other people?

Of course! Get your family, friends and colleagues involved in your plans. You can all fundraise through the same page – taking it on together is a great way to stay connected and can feel less daunting than doing it by yourself! You can register as a team when you set up your fundraising page. 

How long do I have to take part?

Challenge 1739 is running throughout the whole month of October, you can take part anytime from 1- 31 October 2020.

 

Can I just make a donation?

If you would like to complete a challenge but don’t want to fundraise, you can simply donate over on our JustGiving page - Just click donate.

Can I get involved with Coram after Challenge 1739?

There is so much you can get involved with to help support Coram, from Challenge events, volunteering and other fundraising activities. For more information please contact us by calling 020 7749 7976 or emailing challengeyourself@coram.org.uk

Are there fundraising rules and regulations to be aware of?

If you are organising a small event, or only including your personal friends and family, this is considered a private event and the information below does not apply.

If you are planning on holding an event that involves the public, you will need public liability insurance. This can be purchased from an insurance company or broker. Check with the owners of your event venue or supplier as they may have insurance that will already cover you!

If you are holding a small raffle on the day of your event you do not need a licence as long as the draw takes place at the event itself. If you are holding a raffle or lottery under any other circumstances visit The Gambling Commission's website.

As you will be fundraising in aid of Coram and not on behalf of the charity, we do not accept overall responsibility or liability for any fundraising that you might choose to organise.

For more information please contact us by calling 020 7749 7976 or emailing challengeyourself@coram.org.uk
