Fundraising underpins all of our campaigns; it raises awareness, and sparks the question: “What is sepsis? I’ve never heard of it!”
Whether you are climbing a mountain or selling cupcakes, every penny you raise for The UK Sepsis Trust is vital as it will enable us to achieve our goals. Now, more than ever, we need people like you to join our team and get involved. Whether you take part in one of our walks, hold a coffee morning, make a donation, help us campaign for change or give your time and energy, you can make a huge difference for people affected by sepsis.
We’ve got a pack to help you make your fundraising event a success. If there’s something you’d like to do which is new, we can work with you to produce a bespoke package.
To get started on your fundraising journey you’ll need to decide what you’d like to get involved with. From ultra challenges such as triathlons to coffee mornings, the choice is yours. For inspiration check out our fundraising flyer or contact us, we would really like to hear from you.
One of the easiest and most effective ways of fundraising is online. Set up an online giving page, fill out your bio, share across social media then sit back and watch the donations flood in. Be sure to tag us in your posts and we’ll do our best to like, share, retweet and follow you back.
The more we raise awareness of sepsis the more lives we can save. It’s that simple and the same goes for your fundraising event. Be sure to shout it from the rooftops that you’re fundraising for the UK Sepsis Trust and why it matters to you.
The Tagg Family
On the 23rd June 2015, our special little 2 year old son, Thomas, passed away suddenly in hospital from sepsis.
Since then as a family, we have attempted to raise as much awareness and funds for the charity as we possibly can as part of a legacy for Thomas. We have taken part in running events, held auction nights, tea parties, horse racing nights, sponsored walks and bingo nights. Local schools and churches have held themed days to raise funds and the family are currently in the process of organising a football tournament in Thomas’ memory.
Hosting an event can be a great way of bringing together your local community to honour a loved one, and what better way to do that than help to save lives of other people's loved ones in the process?
Watching over our 13 week old baby fighting for her life, being told she may not survive, not knowing what it was. Then being told she has sepsis. What is sepsis? What’s that? We didn’t know. That alone gave me all the passion we needed to get involved with The UK Sepsis Trust. We want to prevent other families suffering like we have. It’s not just the sepsis to deal with, it is the aftermath as well. It’s about awareness too. Over the last few years, we have taken part in Superhero fun runs, held stalls at various events, arranged football matches, cake sales and even organised my own summer fete.
In the future I am going to organise a sponsored walk so Layla can walk 5k at 5, even the little legs will raise money and awareness to help save lives just like her!
Chloe Christopher was born 27th October 1997 in Cwmaman, ABERDARE, South Wales. 17 years later on New Year’s Eve 2014 Chloe passed away to SEPSIS.
As a family we had not heard of sepsis and were not aware of any of the signs and symptoms. Since Chloe’s passing, it’s been my passion to raise as much awareness especially in my part of Wales by becoming a volunteer for the Trust. Together with Terence Canning attended care homes and hospitals to tell Chloe’s story. Distributed posters and leaflets to GPs, Pharmacists, as well as raising funds by doing coffee mornings, Nos Galon, sponsored walks as well as a friend doing a sky dive!
By doing this it helps us keep our beautiful Chloe’s memory alive, hoping that we may help save a family going through what we have.
“Amazing”, “worthwhile”, “a really fantastic experience, something I will do again”. Just a few ways people have described volunteering with us.
