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. 

#GivingTuesday 27th November 2018

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

We are pleased to launch our involvement with the #GivingTuesday fundriasing campaign on 27 November 2018. Giving Tuesday is the day to do good stuff for charity.  We would love as many people as possible to donate to our campaign to support the future of our Patient & Family Support Service. 

'Could you consider giving up a luxury for one day and donating the amount you would spend to the Gauchers Association?'

Our Patient & Family Support Service provides patients and their families with the support they need at the times they most need it; whether it be help with benefits, help with co-ordination of services for children with Gaucher disease or just a listening ear to help patients cope.  Our service works alongside families and patients for as long as we are needed.  Please help us today and support our #GivingTuesday Campaign.

What would we like you to do?

On Tuesday 27th November all we ask is for you to give up one little luxury and donate the amount you spend to us.  For example do you buy a coffee on the way to work? Do you buy lunch every day? Maybe you go out to dinner or the cinema.  Are you prepared to donate the cost of this daily luxury to us for one day and help us reach our target of £500?

IF SO PLEASE DONATE HERE
