Summer at Home
Raise funds for SRUK by hosting your own event this summer!
Things are still quite different at the moment and that's why we need your support more than ever – the Coronavirus pandemic doesn't mean our work stops.
Even with social distancing there are many ways you can get involved and fundraise for us - because however you fundraise, it makes a big difference.
Your fundraising at home means we can continue our vital work in supporting individuals and their families, raising awareness and funding scientific and medical research into further treatments with the hope of finding a cure for scleroderma and Raynaud's.
Since lockdown our home fundraisers have made a formidable team – from running solo marathons, walking laps of their home gardens to hosting virtual quizzes – their support has been incredible and makes a huge difference to the lives of those affected by scleroderma and Raynaud's.
But we need to keep fundraising - so we can provide the support our community desperately needs. And as we adjust to staying safe and being at home more often, there's still lots of ways you can fundraise for us and show your continued support.
Below you'll find our top home fundraising suggestions so you too can be a home hero and join our virtual #TeamSRUK.
