This year we are asking people to 'Spring into Action' for Alopecia UK. We rely on public fundraising and donations to continue our work to improve the lives of those affected by alopecia and we do not receive any statutory funding. 

With 'Spring into Action', we hope to encourage and inspire lots of fabulous people (including YOU reading this!) to get involved in some fundraising this year for Alopecia UK, and help to further our aims of Support, Awareness and Research. 

Why 'Spring Into Action'?

Coming out of the Winter months, with the days getting longer, can put a spring in our step! As Spring approaches, there is renewed energy for the year ahead. We want to encourage you to use this energy to plan some fundraising in 2022 and 'Spring into Action' for Alopecia UK. 

We used to say that fundraising activity is only limited by your time and imagination but the Pandemic changed that! Suddenly a virus limited all sorts of aspects of our lives. Lots of typical fundraising activities were put on hold, such as organised challenge events, school and office fundraisers and, well, pretty much anything that involved people getting together! With the lifting of restrictions, we really hope that fundraising activity will return to pre-pandemic levels and provide Alopecia UK with the funding it needs to continue. 

How can I get involved?

There are LOTS of ways you can get involved! Our A-Z of fundraising ideas provides over 100 different activities that you could plan this year for Alopecia UK. It is all about finding something that appeals to you and running with it. Perhaps you've always wanted to run a 10k, or perhaps you're a skilled baker? Or maybe you have a talent for trivia and could run a quiz? Or maybe you have lots of unwanted stuff that you could sell at a car boot sale? We hope our A-Z has something for everyone! Our 'Top 5 Fundraising Activities' blog goes into greater detail about the most popular fundraising options that our supporters choose. 

Simply speaking, it is often just a case of choosing your fundraising activity and creating a fundraising page

Where can I find more support with my fundraising?
