Hello, I’m new to the forum so thought I should introduce myself first, so, hello!
I’m after some advice on fundraising if anyone could help? Apologies if I have posted in the wrong section.
I’ve been searching the internet for advice, but really don’t know how to go about fundraising for what I want to do.
My Dad has MS and he keeps mentioning that he would really like to do some exercise to ease his muscle tension, aid walking etc and has spotted one of the Medimotion exercise machines advertised in the MS magazine, however he has written it off as he knows it will be quite expensive, he simply doesn’t have the spare cash.
What I would like to do is raise enough money to buy one of these for him. I’m prepared to put the effort in with fundraising ideas such as 3 peaks challenge, bike rides, marathon (half - I’m not that brave to run a full one!!) etc. I have it on my mind that I need to do this and am aware I will need to put the hours in!
I’m really not sure what I have to do legally though, do I have to register a charity, or can I just go for it? I’ve tried looking through sites as justgiving.com, but you have to link up with one of the already registered charities, which I am not
Does anyone know where I should start?
