The Bridgnorth Walk is all about raising money for charity.
In 2019 we raised over £112,000 for local and national charities and organizations.
You are expected to gain sponsorship for taking part in the Walk.
- You will need to print out a sponsorship form to collect sponsor pledges. A link will be provided on your registration confirmation email. If you are having difficulty, please contact us at email@example.com.
- You can also use an online fundraising website but please include these monies as a summary line on your sponsorship form. We can then include this in the total money you have raised as there are prizes for the highest sponsorship money raised. Please be aware some websites charge an admin fee. A comparison of the various online giving sites is available from Money Saving Expert.
Qualifying charities and organisations
Any local or national charity or charitable organization including schools, churches, sports clubs, and voluntary community projects are eligible. If you are in any doubt whether your organization qualifies, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some charities will qualify for gift aid. On the sponsor form you can identify which sponsors are UK taxpayers and wish to have gift aid applied to their sponsorship. Make sure you have postcodes from these sponsors. Claims for reimbursement of gift aid are made by the charity. Some charities may prefer you to use their sponsor forms, if you do this, please fill out the Walk sponsor form to hand in on Walk day.
Distribution of Money Raised
It is the responsibility of the walkers to collect sponsorship money and pay it directly to their charity.
- Team leaders should arrange for all the money raised to be paid to their nominated charity or organization.
- Individuals should pay their money indirectly to their charity or organization.
