There are lots of ways to donate or raise funds to help the Psoriasis Association

Imogen, Sophie & Jo - London Winter 10k RunAs a charity, the Psoriasis Association relies on people’s kindness to spread the word about psoriasis.  Holding events to raise awareness - and even raise some funds whilst you're at it - is a great way to do this.

See below for some great fundraising event ideas. If you're holding a fundraising or awareness-raising event then do get in touch with us, as we can provide t-shirts, posters and leaflets if you need them.

If you would like to donate to the Psoriasis Association, you can click here to securely donate to the Psoriasis Association online. You can also donate via text using the information below, but you must make sure you've got the bill-payer's permission first!

Fundraising Event Ideas

There are many ways of fundraising for the Psoriasis Association. Whilst some feel sporty and take on physical challenges, others may decide to take a less active option and organise a social event. Any way that you raise funds and awareness will make a difference and help people with psoriasis.

For Foodies

Everyone loves a treat now and then, so what could be better than organising a Coffee Morning or Afternoon Tea with sumptuous cakes, scones, sandwiches and biscuits that everyone can feast on? You could even organise a raffle.

Another idea is a footie and rugby pizza supper with friends. Invite your mates to watch a game, order the pizza, watch the game and donate a few pounds each to the Psoriasis Association. The more friends the better and the possibilities are endless! 

For Fun-Lovers

What's better than raising funds and awareness, but having fun at the same time? You could organise a mufti or fancy dress day at your school or college - charge everyone a small amount to wear their silliest outfit! Perhaps you could ask people to sponsor you to get in a bath full of baked beans, or have a sponsored bad hair day? You could hold a competition to see who can fit the most marshmallows in their mouth, or who can shoot the most basketball hoops, and charge everyone a small amount to enter. Then there are always the 'giving up for a day' challenges... chocolate, internet, talking... Actually, perhaps those are less fun!

For the Fit and Adventurous

Do you run for fun or to keep fit? Are you looking for a new challenge? A sponsored run could be great fun. You may know of a local event that you could join, or google ‘The Running Bug’ and search for an event. You can choose from 5k, 10k, half-marathon, marathon, under 6 miles and over 6 miles. 

Maybe, you would like to walk? Not all of us are runners but many of us enjoy a walk in the countryside, especially in the summer months. There are lots of organised walking events. To find a walk in your area you can visit Ramble On. Increasingly, country parks and Forestry Commission sites set up marked walks for the public to follow and indicate the distance to be covered. Why not do a sponsored walk at your favourite park or forest, or what about a coastal walk?


Cycling is an excellent way to get fit and to keep healthy with regular exercise. Many people are now taking to cycling. There are numerous cycle rides maintained by local councils in their parks, and cycle trails through the national Forestry Commission sites.

If you would like to enter an organised cycling event near to you or around the UK check out UK Cycling Events or British Cycling

Obstacle Courses

These are the latest craze and these events are held all over the UK. The best way to find an event near you is to search on google. Tough Mudder, for example, is a 10-12 mile mud and obstacle course which will certainly drag you out of your comfort zone. They test your physical strength, stamina, and mental grit. It’s not about how fast you can cross the finish line, it’s rather, can you cross the line and finish the challenge which relies on camaraderie, true grit and determination?

When you have registered for your event, let us know and we’ll then provide you with support throughout your challenge.
