We will ask for proof of your entry once confirmed, then set up your online fundraising page with justgiving below.

Fed up of having to get sponsors' money after an event when people don't have cash on them? This solves the problem. You can even set up a free text code for your page so your sponsors don't even need to get their wallet out!
