ROTARY CLUB OF LINCOLN COLONIA SUPPORTING LOCAL CHARITIES

In addition to being a great family and community event in Lincoln’s calendar the University of Lincoln Santa fun run and 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 (2019-20) to deserving local charities and causes. If you are participating in the Run but do not wish to raise funds through sponsorship you can just make a donation to the Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia’s Charity Trust Fund via Virgin Money Giving or PayPal  Giving Fund.

RAISING FUNDS FOR YOUR OWN CHARITY

This year we will not be nominating charites in advance but we are supporting charites who wish to raise funds directly through the event.
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 and Walk 2018 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.
If you are a charity and want to raise money through virgin money giving we can add your charity 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
