Fundraise for us

There are so many ways that you can fundraise for the Chilterns Neuro Centre.  From cake sales to skydives, the possibilities are endless. Click on one of the tabs below to find out how you can help people with MS, Parkinson’s and stroke survivors to live life to the full.

Centre organised events

Attend our events

Throughout the year we run a range of events to support our fundraising efforts.

From our fantastic Pop-Up Art Weekend if you’re looking for a bit of culture, to Run Prestwood if you’re feeling more energetic, we have something for everyone. We also have golf days, quiz nights and bingo nights.

Check out the links below to find out more about our events or to sign up.

External events

Sponsored challenges

Why not get sponsored to do a challenge?  They are a great way to raise money for the Chilterns Neuro Centre! Some ideas for sponsored events include:

  • 24-hour silence
  • shave your head/beard or cut your hair
  • leg waxing
  • sponsored bike ride/exercise bike ride/rowing
  • sponsored swim
  • give something up for a month
  • skydive
  • zumbathon / yogathon
  • a marathon, half marathon or 10k run

Just £200 can help to allow someone with chronic fatigue to feel more energised to do something they love, like walking their beloved dog.  Imagine what £500 could do!

Tell us about your challenge by emailing the Fundraising Team. We can guide you on how best to fundraise and share your story.

Runaway Racing

We are thrilled to have partnered with Runaway Racing, an event organiser based in the Chiltern Hills that puts on friendly, inclusive and challenging trail running events all across the UK.

Runaway Racing is specifically supporting the Centre with three local races and, for everyone who signs up to one of these races, £1 will be donated to the Centre, although participants are given the option to donate more. To sign up for one of these races, please use the links below.

For each of these races, the Centre will also receive five Gold Bond places where people can enter for free on the condition they raise at least £150 for the Centre through sponsorship. If you want to apply for a Gold Bond place then please email fundraising@chilternsneurocentre.org
