Would you like to run a 10k for LCTF? Zip-slide for rare diseases? Would you (literally) walk over hot coals for vasculitis research and support?

There are countless ways you can help to raise money for the Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation – from joining an organised fundraising event, to setting up your own.

Everything you fundraise makes a difference.

Over the years, we’ve been lucky to have people take part in events ranging from sponsored walks and our very own Vasculitis 5k, to running the Amsterdam Marathon and scaling Mount Kilimanjaro.

Or if that all sounds a bit too energetic, how about a cake sale or hosting an afternoon tea?

However you’d like to fundraise, we’re delighted to have people support LCTF and the work we do – so please get in touch and we’ll do what we can to support, organise and/or promote your event.

Here are just some of the ways we can help:

Make it easy to donate

One of the best ways to maximise your fundraising is by making it as easy as possible for people to give to you. We suggest you use our JustGiving page and/or sponsorship forms.


You can fundraise or make a donation on our JustGiving page. Easy to share it in emails and on your social media, people can give in their own time without needing cash on hand.

Sponsor Form

Prefer an old school sponsor form? Some events lend themselves more to a sponsorship form, and you can use our LCTF form to make life easier.

Fundraising ideas

There are hundreds of possible fundraising ideas – from setting up your own event to joining in as a participant in an organised event or race. Big or small, we’re happy to help support you as much as we can.

Here are a few ideas to give you some inspiration:

  • Bake sale
  • Afternoon tea or Coffee morning
  • Car boot or craft sale
  • Ceilidh or dinner dance
  • Party night or themed event – eg Jazz, karaoke, 80s, fancy dress, etc
  • Ladies Lunch
  • Pub quiz
  • Sponsored run/walk/hike/climb/abseil
  • Wine or beer tasting
  • Give up something! eg Sober October, sponsored silence, give up chocolate…
  • Birthday fundraiser
  • School or work charity day

Getting started

  • Decide what you’re going to do, and pick a date when you’re going to do it. Give yourself enough time to get everything sorted!
  • Make sure you’ve got a venue if you need it, rope in people to help and double-check that you can do what you’re planning to do – for example, if you need a licence.
  • Make a list of everything you’ll need.
  • Get in touch with us to see how we can help, and if you need anything from us, like collecting cans.
  • Make it easy for people to donate – you can use our JustGiving page or download our sponsorship form.
  • Promote it as much as you can! Use social media, work notice boards, local newspapers and radio – anything you can to let people know what you’re doing and how to donate.

Join someone else’s event

If the thought of organising your own fundraising event is too daunting, join someone else’s! Run a raffle or cake sale at a work or school event. Sign up for an organised event like the Great Scottish Run or the Kiltwalk. Or join one of our LCTF events. Bring along a group of friends to one of our lunches, or for a great night out at the Black and Red Ball, and you can have fun while you’re fundraising!
