Fundraising

The Gauchers Association is funded solely by member's subscriptions and voluntary donations. The efforts and contributions of voluntary fundraisers and donors are fundamental for the Association to provide support and information to Gaucher patients, their families and medical professionals.

There are many ways you can support the Gauchers Association. Your support will help us continue our work and to encourage research. 

2022

Ride London Essex Sunday 29th May 

Its back! and we are delighted to have secured 5 charity places for this iconic cycling 100 mile sportive under a completely new format.

The 100 mile sportive is in partnership with Essex County Council; starting and finishing in central London taking in 60 miles of beautiful Essex countryside.  The full route will be announced in January 2022 but will be a traffic free route taking in iconic London Landmarks.

If you are interested and would like to join 'Team Gaucher' then do get in touch with Sarah in the office for full information and to secure your place - they will not hang around for long.

Once you secure your place we will be there to support you along the way; we can help you set up an online fundraising page, will supply a charity cycle top and fundraising pack and follow your training journey. We ask for each participant to agree to commit to raise a minimum sponsorship of £800
