Fundraising

We know that there are many claims on people’s time and many other charities also hoping to benefit from your fund-raising efforts. However, as a small charity, we rely on the generosity of the public and our supporters to pay for our vital work.

If you can help in any way – by a donation, by taking part in a sponsored event or by remembering the Barrett’s Oesophagus Campaign in your will – your involvement would be very much appreciated and could make a vital difference.

If you wish to be involved in fundraising for us, we can help by providing leaflets, sponsor forms and printed t-shirts as applicable and help with setting up a Just Giving page if required.

You may be aware that we may reclaim 25% extra from the government on funds donated by UK tax payers under the Gift Aid scheme at no extra expense to the donor if they complete a simple declaration.
