Fundraising

Once you have registered for the 2021 event you can start fundraising for charity. 

IT HAS NEVER BEEN MORE IMPORTANT TO HELP SMALL CHARITIES

In addition to being a great family and community event in Lincoln’s calendar the Lincoln Santa fun run and walk is an important annual fundraising event in Lincoln. Santa Fun Run registration fees cover the costs of the event.  Any surplus and any other donations will be shared between selected charities in 2022. You can see the charities we have supported over the last two years here. The Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia is a registered charity (no. 1140234).

RAISING FUNDS FOR YOUR PREFERRED CHARITY

You can of course raise money through sponsorship for your own charity. You will need to make all arrangements including sponsorship forms and HMRC gift aid claims with the charity concerned. It is your responsibility to ensure you are raising funds for a UK registered charity All we ask is that you let us know how much you have raised so that we can add that to the total charity contribution for this years event.
