Fundraising

To take part in Ride the Night 2017, a minimum of £199 per person must be paid in to Women V Cancer by Friday 21 April 2017 (not including Gift Aid).

If you do not reach this target, you will not be confirmed on the event. See our event FAQs for details on confirmation.

The reason we ask for the funds in advance is to ensure that the charities receive maximum funds.

We ask everyone to use JustGiving for their fundraising, but we understand that you may receive cash or cheque donations as well as online donations. Please see section below on ‘Offline Donations’.

The more money raised by participants on the challenge the higher the percentage of funds that directly support the work of the three charities. You are therefore encouraged to exceed the minimum fundraising target.

Gift Aid

Please note that Gift Aid does not count in your fundraising total.

Gift Aid allows charities to claim back the basic rate tax already paid on donations by the donor. This means we can claim back from the government on your behalf 25p for every £1 donated, boosting the value of the donation by a quarter. When a UK taxpayer gives a gift of money to a charity, tax has already been paid on that money. 

 

What to do with offline donations

If you receive a cheque or CAF voucher, there are 4 things you must do:

  1. Make it payable to ‘Women V Cancer’
  2. Write your name and Ride the Night clearly on the reverse of the cheque
  3. Send it in to: Ride the Night, Action for Charity, Newcourt House, New Street, Lymington, SO41 9BQ
  4. Add the amount to your JustGiving page as an offline donation

If you receive cash donations, please follow these steps:

  1. Please do not send us cash – we will not accept it
  2. Instead, download a sponsor form to keep track of the cash donations
  3. Then pay the cash into your own bank account
  4. Make a donation to your own JustGiving page for the amount raised
