Calling all Local Heroes

We want to let you know about an exciting opportunity for our fundraisers to win up to £1,000 for us!

Whether you’re stretching muscles or bathing in beans, in April people across the country will be raising money for local charities in a bid to be crowned Localgiving’s Local Hero!

Local Hero will be launched on 1st April and will run until 30th April. All participants need to do is think up a challenge, set up a fundraising page for us on Localgiving and persuade as many people as possible to donate.

Throughout April, fundraisers will be ranked on a leader board according to the number of unique online donors who sponsor their page. At the end of the campaign, Localgiving will award £5,000 in prizes to the causes supported by the top 20 fundraisers, with a top prize of £1,000 going to the cause of the fundraiser who has secured the most donors.

We’d be incredibly grateful if you would consider setting up a fundraising page and becoming our Local Hero! 

But don’t worry if you haven’t got a challenge booked for April you could support Hannah Gallagher become our Local Hero, Hannah is running the Bristol 10K on 13th May 2018 her fundraising page is  Hannah’s cousin Helen Griffiths is a member of our 18+ club.
