how else can i help?

Our fundraisers help us in so many ways: volunteering, nominating us as their charity of the year at work, and through completing events and challenges to raise funds for Aberlour’s work with Scotland’s most vulnerable children. If you want to get involved, can you #SpendAnHour fundraising so that we can reach children and families in need of help sooner?

Here’s some ideas to get you started.

Are you a runner, walker, cyclist or swimmer? Needing a new challenge? Check out our list of events you might like to take part in and raise money for Aberlour.

If you are going to raise money for Scotland’s hidden children, then please get in touch. We can give you lots of support with your activities and give you access to T-shirts and any other materials that you might need, to help you make an impact.

If you are going to be gathering sponsorship as one of the ways you are raising funds, then you can download a sponsorship form.

If you holding an event and want to advertise it, you can download a poster template.
