Fundraising

 The Ocean Needs You.

Are you taking up running this year? Or maybe you’re swimming in ice cold water, SUPing 500 miles or trying your hand for the next season of Great British Bake Off. Whatever you do with your free time, you can fuel our mission to protect the ocean from everything that threatens it.

Ready to go?

Create your fundraising page below, or get in touch with our Fundraising Officer, Sophie, if you wanted to chat through your fundraising ideas. We’d love to hear from you.

How will you fundraise?

Do a Beach, River or Mountain Clean

Clear your local environment of plastic pollution and raise money and awareness at the same time.

Walking, running or swimming- if you’re being sponsored to clean the environment, make it a part of our Million Mile Clean!

Run

Take part in an organised race, virtual event or a solo challenge! Running is a great way to stay healthy and raise money!

See also, cycling (just add wheels!) and walking (slow it down a bit). Whatever your choice of movement, you can do it for the ocean.

Take a Dip in Cold Water!

The ultimate challenge and a real boost for your mental health! Whether it’s a bath tub filled with ice or the North Sea, there’s nothing more exhilarating than a cold-water dip.

Make or Bake

Set up a little stall on your doorstep of freshly baked cupcakes and you’ll be raising funds in no time… and making friends with the neighbours! Whatever your interests are, there’s a way to use them – you can host an auction of your artwork, put on a musical show, or even clear out your attic and have a jumble sale!

Fundraise for your Birthday

Not sure what you want for your birthday? Why not ask for your friends and family to donate to SAS instead! It’s super simple to set up a birthday fundraiser, either on social media or using a fundraising platform.

Check out our ideas and tips or have a look at our fundraising FAQ’s which may answer any questions you have. Or, get in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you.

How to Get Started

  1. Set up your Just Giving fundraising page with us here.
  2. Promote your event on social media! You can share the link to your fundraising page with friends and family. If you’re training for a big event or lots of you are taking part, sharing your progress is a great way to keep people engaged!
  3. Once you’ve raised £25 or more, SAS will send you a T-Shirt so you can show your support while you’re training or during your event.
  4. Congratulations, you’ve raised money and awareness for SAS! You don’t need to do anything as your fundraising page will transfer the money automatically, but if your event meant you were collecting cash donations you’ll receive a paying-in form to fill in and return to us.
  5. THANK YOU! We’ll be in touch to say thanks, and you can share your awesome achievement with friends and family – if you keep your fundraising page live this is a great opportunity to get a few more donations.
