Getting Started

Set up a fundraising page

We recommend setting up a fundraising page on JustGiving or GiveWheel. It doesn’t take long and is the easiest way to let people know you are fundraising for us, to collect donations or sponsorship and to get the money to us!

Please ensure when you create your fundraising you select the charity ‘Mind in Bexley and East Kent’ to ensure that any funds go directly to us and we also get Gift Aid for any donations.

Top tips on setting up your page:

Make it personal – State why you have decided to support our charity. Tell your story, add photos. Keep it up to date, take people through your fundraising journey.

Share – Let everyone know about your fundraising! Email your contacts, ask them to share your link, include on Facebook and Twitter and include on your website if you have one.

Say thank you – write a personal ‘thank you’ that will automatically be sent to everyone when they donate
