ParachuteThank you for thinking of us! We want you to enjoy yourself whether it be running a marathon or a delightful afternoon tea fundraising event! If this is the first time you have ever fundraised, don’t  worry, we can help! We have resources that can help raise the profile of your event and useful tips to make your event a great success. If you are a pub or shop or club, we have charity pot labels available - the pennies soon add up! For large events we have sashes available too. If you are undertaking a sporting event such as running or cycling and wish to raise money for IIH UK, we can supply you with our logo so you can have it printed onto your own Tshirts/Vests so that can also help raise awareness of IIH and the Charity. We have a great Quiz pack, with individual answer sheets - in fact everything you need for a successful Quiz Night!. There are stickers available too if you would like them, and for these and the quiz pack, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are a small charity, continually looking to make savings wherever possible. Due to the high costs of postage, we have decided to make resources available for fundraisers to use for their events here on the website, rather than distribute pots and buckets etc. These great resources can be used to decorate your own buckets, jam jars or tubs. The bunting looks great hung around a table! Some people have worn items of clothing with the charities colours too! Please feel free to download and print any of the items below to highlight to people you are raising money for IIH UK.

Make sure everyone you know and their friends know what you are doing and how important their support is. Tell them why the money you are raising is so important to IIH UK. We are a small charity and the only UK registered charity who champion research and support of IIH. Some companies have funds available for charities and will match the funds you raise for your event - don't forget to include your employer! If you are collecting in a public place, do not forget to ask permission first.

chris randallYou can set up online sponsorship here at Just Giving. This is a safe online method where people can sponsor you directly and the money is paid straight to IIH UK. When you create your page, you have the option of raising money for a charity - just click the Raise Money For Us option. In addition you can request an IIH UK Sponsor Form for your event . Remember to ask any UK Tax payers to provide their details as IIH UK can claim back the Tax as Gift Aid!
