Why not make a difference to the lives of people in South Asia and the UK by attending events like cricket matches at Lord’s, running a marathon or even a sponsored silence!
FUNdraising should be just that - fun. So if you think you can raise some money by running an entire marathon like Deepak Shukla (left) or by just entering a fun run, your efforts will make a difference. And it doesn’t have to be all about exercise. Just get someone to sponsor you and you can do anything from holding a cake sale to a dinner party. You could even get paid to be silent! Whatever you end up doing, you can get involved to help transform someone’s life and have some fun while doing it!
You can set up your own sponsorship page at www.justgiving.com/britishasiantrust
The Trust works with Justgiving to make it easier for you to raise money and claim Gift Aid on any donations.
You can email your sponsorship page to friends and colleagues all over the world to ask them to support you in your quest. You can even personalise your page and add your own photograph. Don’t forget to tell everyone you know what you plan to do and how each donation can help!
The British Asian Trust has a solid reputation in hosting large-scale events especially in the world of cricket. Over 22,000 people flocked to Lord’s to watch the British Asian Challenge, The British Asian Trust’s annual cricketing event to raise funds for the Trust’s charities. Our recent Dragon’s Den-style event raised £69,500 for our charity partners.
