Become a Refuge Champion
Refuge needs your help to reach even more women and children.
Refuge started as a single house in Chiswick, West London, in 1971. We are now the country’s largest single provider of specialist services for women and children fleeing domestic violence.
But securing funding for our services is becoming more and more challenging in this difficult economic climate. We really need your help.
How can you become a Refuge Champion?
- Help fill all our places in the Brighton Marathon 2013. Sign up yourself or spread the word to any friends and family who appreciate a challenge! We’re recruiting for the London and Brighton marathons, half marathons, a 10k run and cycle events. Look at our running events and sign up
- Set up a regular donation and help Refuge plan for the future, expand and develop its services to reach more vulnerable women and children
- Hold a birthday tea party to raise money for Refuge. Email email@example.com for a tea party pack
- Take part in our text-to-donate scheme. Text REFU40 £2 to 70070 - pass this number around to everyone you know and ask them to text in any amount from £1 to £10
Why not take part in one of our running events?
We have events for all abilities – ranging from marathons and half marathons to smaller events such as 5km or 10km runs. Or you could take on a once-in-a-lifetime challenge like a skydive or an overseas endurance event. Find out more about how you can fundraise for Refuge.
