Charity Fundraising


In addition to being a great family and community event in Lincoln's calendar the University of Lincoln Santa fun run & walk is one of the biggest fundraising events each year in Lincoln. 
Santa Fun Run registration fees cover the costs of the event. Any surplus, plus corporate, individual, family and team sponsorship and any other donations are all ways that the Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia raises money from the event which is then distributed during the following year (2018-19) to deserving local charities and causes. Help on fundrasing can be found on our Runner's Sponsorship page.
Check out some of the local charities raising money this year through the University of Lincoln Santa Fun Run & Walk.

If you are participating in the Run but do not wish to raise funds through sponsorship you can make a single personal donation when you register or at any time afterwards online - click on the link below
. Please give your name and competitor number.


If you are a registered charity based in Lincoln or providing services to Lincoln and Lincolnshire residents and you would like to organise your own fundraising teams please contact us.

We can provide a sponsorship template and publicity through our website and newsletters. All we ask from you (the charity) is

  • Charity Name and UK registration number

  • A responsible contact for the charity (preferably local)

  • Your charity logo and a few words about what you do

  • That the University of Lincoln Santa Fun Run & Walk 2017 Logo and the Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia Logo are included on your sponsorship forms

  • You inform the Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia after the event how much you have raised

Note each team member must still register for the event.

This year we will not be nominating charites in advance but we are supprting charites who wish to raise funds directly through the event.
If you are a charity and want to raise money through virgin money giving we can add your chariy to the list of charities runners can select to raise money for when they setup their fundraising page - please contact the Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia to request this service.
