How does my fundraising help families living with Huntington’s disease?

Your fundraising provides a lifeline of specialist and practical support for families. You are changing lives through our network of HD Specialists, youth advisors and financial wellbeing officers.  Having the right support makes the difference between coping and not coping so by supporting the work of Scottish Huntington’s Association you are making sure no young person, family member or carer whose life is affected by Huntington’s disease is left to cope alone.

Do I have to fundraise a certain amount?

We ask that you fundraise a minimum of £50 if signing up as an individual, or a minimum of £200 if you sign up as a group. This could pay for a visit to family by one of our specialist advisors to help them manage the challenges of Huntington’s disease.

How do I fundraise?

The simplest way to fundraise is by setting up a JustGiving page. You can follow this link and click ‘start fundraising' to get started. Our welcome pack is filled with hints and tips to help you fundraise and we’ll be sharing stories of the creative ways people are raising much needed funds.

How do I pay my funds in?

For any money raised through JustGiving, the platform will pay this directly to us. If you have any offline amounts you can either pay this into your JustGiving or let our fundraiser know and they can provide bank details.
