Fundraise for us

Want to help brighten the days of seriously ill children and teenagers? Join our wonderful community of people doing amazing things.

Supporting Spread a Smile is fun and rewarding and there are many ways to help – whether it’s by attending an event, running, cycling, swimming, dancing or even cutting your hair! Whether you'd like to take part on your own, in a team, at work, at school, there are lots of ways to raise money to help sick children and their families.

We are funded entirely by donations and receive no statutory funding. See how we use the vital funds you raise here

Get in touch for fundraising inspiration or resources to help make your event a success! If you're already planning an event, let us know and our team will help you with the organisation and publicity. We can even help you set up a JustGiving page so collecting donations is easy.
