LCC is no exception.
Our fundraisers have raised thousands of pounds through sponsored rides and ebay sales, even doing their weekly shop. We’re grateful for every pound our supporters raise: you wouldn’t be seeing progress on Lorry Danger reduction, new segregated cycle routes or improved cycle parking without them.
If you would like to join our team of fundraisers, here are a few suggestions to inspire you…

If you’re planning an epic ride, you can set up a page on either site so that your friends and family can sponsor your efforts online. It’s easy to pass a link to your page by email or through social media networks.
Both sites will automatically claim Gift Aid on donations so the value of your sponsorship could by increased by 25% with no extra admin for you or LCC. It’s a great way of fundraising. You’ll find the pages here:
You can also print out a sponsorship form for those to prefer to donate by cash or cheque here.
