Before speaking to Galop I was unaware of any groups that could help people like me. Galop helped me immensely, giving me hope and a bright light at the end of a very dark tunnel”
Galop provides its services on very low levels of funding, and money raised for Galop can massively impact on our ability to do our work. Galop is not a large charity and we aren’t able to employ professional fundraisers or put on large events. However, we welcome anyone who is willing to raise money for us or is able to help us with fundraising events.
Galop supported me through a very tough period with kindness, compassion and honesty. Words are not enough to express my gratitude”
How can you help? There are lots of ways you can help raise money for Galop, here are some examples below:
If you enjoy being active and taking part in running or other events, why not raise money for Galop through sponsorship. There are lots of open events from 5K runs right up to marathons. Tell us what you’re doing and we’ll be happy to promote the event and support you! Publications such as Runners World provide listings for upcoming events in your area http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/events/
If you’re running in a race and would like to raise money for us, we can send you a Gallop For Galop pack with advice on how to maximise your fundraising as well as training and preparation tips.
If you or someone you know is planning to put on an event, and would consider raising money for Galop, we can help publicise your event, come and talk about the work we do or even shake buckets!
