Once you have chosen your challenge, set up your fundraising page on as follows:

  1. You will need to login or create a new account for yourself.

  2. Click on 'Create a fundraising page'.

  3. Fill in the details of your challenge, ensuring that you select. 'Special Friends' as the charity you are fundraising for.

  4. Make your page more personal by adding a photo and your story, and perhaps saying what Special Friends means to you.

  5. Share on social media to all your friends.

  6. Post regular updates and thank you messages to your supporters.

Enjoy your challenge & Good Luck!

Organise a Fundraiser 









Why not hold your own fundraiser such as a cake sale, car wash, car boot sale, garage sale, coffee morning, afternoon tea, dress down day at school or work or hold a stall at an event/fair (e.g. Tombola, Guess the Weight of the Cake, Name the teddy...) etc.

You can then donate your proceeds directly to Special Friends by clicking on 'Donate Now' on our page. 

Don't forget to add Gift Aid to your donation if you are eligible.

Remember, pass on every single penny that you raise!

If you would like to borrow a Special Friends collection box and t-shirts, please contact us.

Our Fundraisers

From time to time Special Friends organise their own fundraising events and we rely on people like you to support them.













Our Festive 5k fun run has been a great success over the last few years. We are very excited about our brand new sponsored event which is 'accessible for all' that will take place on Sunday 26th April 2020.


Unfortunately our Spring Along event has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

Thank you to everyone that signed up, and your ongoing support.

Take care & stay safe!
