No matter how big or small, there are so many fun and easy ways you can raise money to support XLH UK. From sponsored sports events to children’s sales, tea parties or raffles, there are loads of different activities to make your fundraising campaign come to life.

Fundraising for XLH UK also helps raise awareness with others outside our community, so feel free to be loud and proud!

It is easy to set up a Fundraiser page on Just Giving

Whether it is a cake sale or a physical challenge, setting up a Just Giving page is easy. Sharing your page with others is a great way to raise awareness and stay motivated to reach your goal. XLH UK can help with logos and information about the charity and XLH itself.

Other Ideas for Fundraising

Share your celebration

Instead of people buying a tangible gift, why not ask people to contribute to a cause you care about? You can direct them to our website to donate, or set up a fundraiser. If you are having an event which you are hosting, a simple raffle or lucky dip at the event can be a fun way of asking people to get involved.

If you tell us what event you’re hosting and how much you’ve raised we will send a thank you note for you to share. You can also include a photograph, if everyone in the photo is happy to be included, and we will feature it online to inspire other people.

Become an XLH UK partner

We enjoy working with organisations who share our aims and ambitions to help those affected by XLH. Your company could sponsor us, or perhaps choose us as their Charity of the Year.
