Sorry to be a bit blunt with our picture above but basically that is what we are here for! We ask all entrants to do their best to support us in raising loads for Heart of England Mencap so we are asking each raft to commit to raising a minimum of £100 sponsorship. In 2015 the most raised by one team was over £1200 with an average donation amount of £310 per raft so we are sure you will do just as well or even better.

There are two ways you can send us your sponsorship money.

By post
This method is to complete a sponsorship form and send it to us with your cheques – no cash please. Whenever possible, please make use of Gift Aid section of the sponsorship form which allows us to claim an additional 25% from HMRC on top of your sponsorship. Please be sure you complete all the Gift Aid fields with your home address information.
On line with MyDonate
The online method is probably easier if you set up a fund raisers donation page for your raft.. We chose MyDonate because it charges just a transaction fee of £0.15 max and not a percentage of your donation amount. When you make your donation you are encouraged to sign up for Gift Aid which, if you are a UK tax payer, allows HMRC to give us an additional 25% of your donation value.

A sponsorship form is included in the entry pack but additional copies can be downloaded here.
