2020 Centenary Challenge

Can you help us raise £100,000 in our centenary year?

If 1000 people raise £100 each, we’ll be able to help more of our Armed Forces community through social events and activities. It will also help us in our 2020 campaign of Finding the Forgotten.

All those who manage to raise £100 or more will receive a limited edition Centenary badge as a thank you!

Whether it’s a bake sale, sponsored silence, fun run or ultra-marathon, If you’ve got a great idea about how you can raise £100, all you have to do is register with us – call us on 020 7730 2400 or email sonia@thenotforgotten.org. Our address can also be found on our contact page.

Don’t forget to mention that you’re fundraising for the ‘2020 Centenary Challenge’ so that we can be sure you receive your Special Edition badge!

DON’T KNOW WHAT EVENT TO ORGANISE?

Don’t worry – why not try one of the following:

FOR THE SPORTY

Run, swim or cycle for The Not Forgotten in your local area, or challenge yourself in the Gym – why not ask people to sponsor you for every push-up, pull-up or mile cycled. You could do it on your own or in a group!

FOR THE CREATIVE

Make and sell cards, crafts, cakes or trinkets for The Not Forgotten.  Put on a 100-minute show or gig with a percentage of ticket sales being donated to us.

FOR THE BUSY

Too busy to organise a fundraiser? Why not donate part of your salary to enrich the lives of injured service personnel, or put The Not Forgotten forward as your company’s charity of the year.

You could also whip around the office, asking your colleagues to donate any spare change. Or why not encourage them to start their own 2020 Centenary Challenge Fundraiser?

FOR THE KIDS

Sponsor them to give up something they would really miss (like their smartphone), or encourage them to take part in a sponsored silence, a goal kicking contest, a skip-a-thon, or any other sponsored games or challenges you can think of! Why not put The Not Forgotten forward as the school charity of the year?

IN THE COMMUNITY

Hold a collection in your local supermarket or train station, put on a dance or Zumbathon in your local hall, organise a bake sale, a movie marathon, street party or coffee morning. All of these are a brilliant way to bring the community together behind a great cause!
