Or why not make SUDC UK the chosen charity for your choice of race or challenge? Supporters have entered Ride London, Manchester Marathon, London Marathon, half marathons, 10k’s, 5k’s, triathlons, walking challenges and more and selected SUDC UK to support. This has raised vital funds and we are so grateful.

Simply set up a JustGiving page and choose SUDC UK as the beneficiary. Please contact us so we can provide a free SUDC UK running vest and support you. Don’t forget to tag us on social media @sudcuk #TeamSUDCUK.

HOST A FUNDRAISING EVENT

Planning a community event is a special way to honour a child or family you support, to help raise awareness of Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood and support SUDC UK’s mission.

Afternoon Tea for SUDC Flyer

A community fundraising event could be anything from a cake sale, a 5k walk or run, a family scoot, a car boot sale or nearly new sale to a more lavish black-tie ball and auction.

Hosting an Afternoon Tea for SUDC is a fun, tasty, lovely way to get together with people you care about and raise money for our cause. To help you host your Afternoon Tea, we will send you a fundraising kit including decorations and a hosting guide. Find out more or order your pack here.

Fundraising supplies to support awareness of SUDC UK at your event can be ordered here.  Please let us know if you would like an electronic device to take payments at your event and enable direct donations to go to the charity.

SUDC UK can also set up a dedicated fundraising page for your child so you can track amounts raised over time (see below). 

  • £100 could fund a local medical education event on SUDC to support professionals and improve care for families
  • £300 could help SUDC UK support a new family with resources, expertise and advocacy
  • All funds raised could help pay for critical research to further understanding of why children die this way. The cost of enrolling one family in a research trial will vary but usually costs thousands of pounds. Your support is so important as we do not receive any government funding. 

Important information: SUDC UK is registered with Just Giving, GoFundMe, eBay and Paypal. Some of our fundraisers have also used jumblebee.co.uk for ticketed events. 

If you are organising an event, please read the current fundraising code of practice from the fundraising regulator. We would like to highlight the importance of transparency, recommending that communication about the event is clear so your donors fully understand who will receive the funds raised. When sharing totals please remove any costs so it is clear how much the charity will actually receive. Please also ensure you have public liability insurance and any licences if required for your event. 

If you have any questions or simply want to learn more, please contact us today!  We love to celebrate events on social media so please share any plans with us if you would like us to help promote your event and/or publicly thank your donors. Thank you once again for your support

DONATIONS IN MEMORY OF YOUR CHILD

Many families choose to invite donations to SUDC UK in memory of their child following their loss.

SUDC UK can create a memorial page including your child’s story, pictures and updates for donors using a platform called Kindlink. This page can be a long-term place to track amounts raised over time in honour of your child. Some families choose to create their own using the more familiar JustGiving

Neither Kindlink, nor JustGiving charge a fee so 100% (minus standards card fees) is paid to SUDC UK.

We are so grateful for support to help make Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood predictable and preventable in the future. Please contact us if you would like to set up a Kindlink page or have any questions about fundraising or donations.

WORKPLACE GIVING

SUDC UK is grateful for all funds received through company initiatives such as payroll giving (where you can elect to set up a tax-efficient regular donation to charity) and corporate matching (where companies will match a donation, even a large sum, thereby doubling the amount received by SUDC UK). 

Please check with your workplace to see if they have charitable schemes and contact us if we can help in any way. If you are a company interested in learning more about working in partnership with SUDC UK or donating to our cause, please see our Corporate Donations page. If you are small business, SUDC UK is registered with Work For Good, a website that makes giving easy.

A GIFT IN YOUR WILL

Please contact us if you would like to remember SUDC UK with a gift in a will. SUDC UK values your privacy and would never ask for details or add pressure. Our team is here to help guide you through the process and answer any questions. 

When creating a will, the positive and thoughtful gift of remembering a charity in a will costs no additional money. SUDC UK promises to use any funds with great care to further our mission and honour your legacy. We are incredibly grateful for anyone considering this remarkable act of kindness in the hope of saving childrens’ lives in the future.
