From ages 10 to 100 you can join in with UA your Way
When it comes to showing your support for our charity, perhaps because you want to pay forward some of the kindness and encouragement you or a loved one has received from the Association, we’ve made it as simple as possible for you to do exactly that…
Everyone within our community is an individual on their own journey, accessing the Association’s support as and when they need it, in the way that’s right for them. We also want our fundraising to be as individual as you are.
‘UA your Way’ is our ‘banner’ for the fundraising you do individually and the important difference you make by doing it, whether you bake and sell cakes, organise a raffle, or take on a sponsored challenge – from a swim, walk or hike to the adrenalin rush of a wing walk or skydive.
Our charity needs your support more than ever to help us continue to be here for everyone who needs us. And if you’d like to get started start fundraising ‘your way’, we’ve made it really straightforward for you.
Of course, not everyone wants to fundraise – if you prefer, you can donate directly to the Urostomy Association, giving whatever you can afford. If you choose to support us in this way, please know it is just as appreciated! Every gift, whatever the size, helps us do what we do as well as we do it for our community.
Meet some of our current fundraisers
Sheffield Branch Secretary Mary Milner gets crafty to support UA. Mary said: “My main fundraising now is handmade cards and crafts. I usually have a craft stall at our UA branch meetings and also occasional stalls at local small craft events, which is also a good way to promote the Association.”
Toni Haines, who as well as being Branch Secretary for Shropshire, Wales and the Marches, uses her artistic talent to fundraise for UA. “Quite by chance, I not only found a very satisfying and therapeutic hobby, but something that also brings in a fair bit money for the UA.”
One of our youngest fundraisers, Alex Shepherd, aged 10, was sponsored for taking on the challenge of reading consecutively for 100 nights. “I know how important it is to help people get well so you can have fun together as a family. I wanted to support the Urostomy Association by doing something I really enjoy, which is reading.”
