What kind of fundraiser are you?

Posted on: March 03 2016


It takes all sorts of people to make our work possible, so we want to know…what kind of fundraisers are you?

The Super Human
If it’s a challenge, you’re up for it. Jumping out of planes, running marathons, cycling hundreds of kilometres – you take it all in your stride. Some people would be put off by the pain and effort of it all, but there’s nothing quite like that feeling when you cross the finish line. In fact, why don’t we sign you up for the next ultra-marathon right now?

The Shameless Ask
Others may find asking for donations slightly embarrassing, but you’ll confidently stride up to anyone and ask for a contribution. Your gran, your boss, that bloke who owns the village shop, you used the gift of the gab to convince them all to donate to your last fundraising effort – and it paid off.

The Freebie Wrangler
There’s something about you that just makes people want to be generous. Businesses throw iPads, hampers and gift vouchers at your feet, and your collection bucket is full the second you step onto the street. Who said this fundraising malarkey was difficult?

The Big-Time Baker
You’ll happily fundraise for any cause because, well, who doesn’t like baking? Your Victoria Sponge is legendary and you’ve sold your cakes to everyone from the local Scout group to the big buck lawyers. People seem to love being generous when there’s butter cream involved.

The Social Butterfly
The best thing about fundraising is the opportunity to get everyone together, right? Whether it’s bingo, a club night or a pub quiz – if people are having fun you can fundraise without them even noticing. Throw a couple of drinks in and it sounds like you’ve got a winner. £5 a ticket? Count us in.

Whatever kind of fundraiser you are, if you’re passionate about helping us continue our vital work supporting anyone affected by multiple sclerosis, get involved today!

Competition time!

As March arrives, I want to see your Easter selfies!

I’m also giving away an MS-UK goody bag to one lucky winner. Here’s how to take part…

  1. Take a selfie. Remember, Easter is the theme, so anything with eggs, chocolate or chicks is probably good!
  2. Email your photo to me at before Friday 18 March 2016 to make sure your snaps are included in my Easter Instagram album
  3. Sit back and hope you are a winner! Remember though, even if you don’t win the goody bag you’ll be helping me raise awareness of multiple sclerosis, and that’s a great thing to do!

I will be adding all the photos you send me to my account at in time for Easter at the end of March, so remember to follow me on Instagram.

The winner of the MS-UK goody bag will be picked at random. We will contact you by email to confirm your postal address, then send you some goodies, including an MS-UK pin badge, a trolley keyring, the latest issue of our New Pathways magazine and of course a mini Myles teddy bear.

Good luck everyone!
