Helping disabled and terminally ill children across the UK receive the vital equipment they need is something Newlife has been committed to for more than 30 years, but with no government funding we rely on fundraising – and the kindness and generosity of those willing to help us by fundraising.
What can you do to take part?
From making and selling craft projects, holding coffee mornings or bake sales, to the more adrenaline fuelled activities such as to skydiving and wing walking, or sponsored walks or cycles, there are many ways people can fundraise for Newlife – and absolutely every penny counts.
Newlife can also help by providing you with packs to help and our teams able to advise on every aspect from initial ideas to publicity.
If you don’t want to create your own event, you can get involved with the campaigns Newlife regularly hold, such as the current Swim Your Way challenge taking place between April and October this year. There are also a number of climbing, running / walking events you can take part in across the country, including the Snowdon Sunrise Challenge in June, the Alton Towers 5k, 10k or half marathon event in November and the Cardiff half Marathon in October.

If you don’t have the time to take on a fundraising event, there are other ways to help Newlife too, from making a one-time donation or giving a small amount regularly through Newlife’s website here.
Our retail stores
You can also support Newlife to help disabled children by shopping in one of our ten stores across the UK which raises money to help disabled and terminally ill children across the UK, see here for details of locations where you can snap up some amazing bargains. Newlife receives brand new donated stock from hundreds of High Street retailers which is then heavily discounted to be sold in stores – and for those who don’t live close enough to our stores, there is an online store here.
