Organise your own event 

Fundraising for the British Skin Foundation is as easy as 1 -2 -3!

We’ve had people do all sorts to raise money for the BSF, from cake and bake sales at their school, quiz nights, walks and treks and even a spray tan party! If you have an idea of something you’d like to make a reality, we can help. Below are our tips for putting your plans into action. 

1 - Decide what you want to do

Sounds simple, but consider a few basic things like, when you’re going to do it, who will take part, and where. If you’re stuck for ideas, have a look at our guide to fundraising for some inspiration. Remember, even something as simple as a collection at the office counts!

2 – Let us know

We will support you however we can, from making sure you have collection tins, stickers or running t-shirts, as well as guidance on legal and safety issues. Have a read through our guide to get an idea. We can also help publicise your event in the media and (hopefully) get people to turn up!

3 – Sending us the donation

There are a number of ways you can get the funds you have kindly raised to us. So just choose whatever is most convenient for you!

- Cheque (made payable to British Skin Foundation), please send this to 4 Fitzroy Square, London, W1T 5HQ   

- Online via our Just Giving page  www.justgiving.com/skinfoundation/

- Credit/debit card by giving us a call and making a payment over the phone by calling us on 0207 391 6341

Why donate to us?

Sixty percent of British people currently suffer from or have suffered with a skin disease at some point during their lifetime. Some skin conditions are manageable, others are severe enough to kill. We are here to help change that.

We raise money to fund research for cures for skin disease and skin cancer, but research doesn't fund itself.

We are the UK's only charity dedicated to skin research, and all of our donations and fundraising events are crucial to enabling us to continue our work.

We have supported more than 300 research projects and awarded £15 million in funding across all skin diseases including eczema, psoriasis and many more.

Help us find a cure today.
