One of the key benefits of participating in the Great Midlands Fun Run, is that you can select a charity, voluntary organisation or community interest group/company of your choice to receive the sponsor money you raise.
We encourage you to select a group or organisation either based in the Midlands or, if a national organisation, with a Midlands regional office.
When completing your registration form, please ensure you enter the details of your chosen charity, voluntary organisation or community interest group in the appropriate section.
If you choose not to select an organisation, any sponsor money you raise and pay-in to the Fun Run sponsorship account, will be distributed among those which have been nominated – so your hard work will help to improve the quality of life for those less fortunate than most of us.
All we ask is that any sponsor money you raise via use of the official sponsor form, be paid into the official Fun Run Sponsorship Account using the unique pre-printed Lloyds Bank credit slip which will be included in your information pack posted to you approximately three weeks before the Fun Run.
This credit slip has your unique run number printed on the bottom left hand edge. This number is read by the bank computer and we then cross-reference every credit into the account, in order to assign any money requested by you to your nominated group.
Once you have paid in your off-line sponsor money, please return your whole sponsor form to the Fun Run office – address on the front of your sponsor form, so we can forward that, along with your sponsor money, to enable your chosen charity to reclaim the gift aid tax.
If you create an online fundraising page via the links on the Fun Run web site, all sponsor money will be sent direct to your chosen charity by the online provider together with any Gift Aid which has been authorised by your donors.
