Do your own fundraising

Whether it’s a sponsored walk or a full-blown marathon, a low-key coffee morning or an all-out bake sale.

If you want to fundraise for us, set up your JustGiving page so that your friends, family and colleagues can sponsor you online.

JustGiving send us the money, so you won't have to do anything.

Share your page on social media using #SpotlightOn and keep everyone updated on your progress.

Every penny helps us make breakthroughs that could prevent the devastation of hidden heart conditions.

Fundraising ideas

Ready to set sail on your September fundraising adventure? Here are a few ideas to get the creative juices flowing and you’ll find plenty more in our downloadable fundraising guide. 

Healthier bake sale 

We can see you grimace. But healthy doesn’t need to mean bland and tasteless. Think fruity scones, wholewheat muffins, fresh fruit filo tarts or platters. 

Fun run 

A good one for adults and kids alike. Get friends, family, neighbours, and your local postal worker on board for an old-fashioned fun run. £2 to enter.  

Fancy dress day 

Scrap the uniform for a day. Pick a fun theme and ask everyone to come to work or school in fancy dress. 80s icons, A-listers, heartthrobs. The choice is yours. 


Always dreamt of doing a skydive? Time to make it a reality. Tick ‘jumping out of an aeroplane’ off the bucket list and get sponsored at the same time.  

Sponsored silence  

Another good one for the kids, your partner or chatty friends. Think of a time frame, then commit to some quiet time for donations. Doesn’t sound too bad, does it?
