Sponsorship is a key part of the Night Hike and the yearly funds we raise.
We encourage all Night Hikers to raise a minimum of £25 sponsorship; 5 people sponsoring £5. Now, before you think, ‘I can’t raise that amount, so I won’t take part‘, please remember it’s a suggested amount. We understand that it is a difficult time for many people and any amount you raise will go towards helping our clients.
Last year, no single walker raised £65,000. It is everyone’s combined efforts that helped us reach this unimaginable amount. Pennies turn into pounds turn into changed lives.
To make getting sponsorship for your walk as easy as possible, below are just a few ways you can ask your family and friends to support you!
