Create your own fundraiser
There are lots of ways you can fundraise to help support the Thin Red Line Appeal.
From running a marathon, packing bags at the local supermarket, organising a pub quiz, or or shaving your beard, whatever you do, we’re very grateful that you’ve decided to support us.
Your donation will help us secure the future of our Regimental Museum and ensure the stories of The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders are preserved so that their feats of sacrifice and bravery can inspire and educate future generations.
Top tips to get started
If you need some inspiration, have a look at our A-Z of fundraising ideas HERE. Whatever you decide to do, the first thing to do is let us know of your plans. Drop us an email at email@example.com.
Did you know that setting up an online sponsorship page with JustGiving is a quick and easy way to fundraise for us? Sign up at our JustGiving page.
- Share your page link with your friends, family and colleagues by email or on social media so they can sponsor you anywhere, at any time.
- People can donate securely, quickly and easily with a credit or debit card.
- The money you raise goes directly to The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Museum Trust
Take sponsorship forms to your event for those who would rather sponsor you in person than online. You can download a sponsorship form HERE. Remember to ask them to fill in their information so we can claim Gift Aid.
The first donation on a sponsorship form or online page sets the precedent – if you can encourage your first donor to make a larger donation, the rest of your donors are likely to give more too!
If you need a blank Thin Red Line poster to advertise your event, you can download one HERE.
Don’t forget to Gift Aid!
We can receive an extra 25% on the money you raise if your sponsors are UK taxpayers. Ask donors to tick the Gift Aid box on the donation form if they are able to gift aid their donation.
Ask your company to match your fundraising
Many employers will match your fundraising which is a great way to double the money you raise. Let us know if your employer is prepared to do this so we can thank them.
