Fundraising

Since its inception in 2003, LAM Action has raised over £700,000 in fundraising and donations. We are entirely self-funded. The vast majority of the funds we raise go to support research, with the remainder going toward patient support.

If you are interested in organising a fundraising event in your community, please notify LAM Action through Jan Johnson. Jan is available on email jan.johnson@nottingham.ac.uk or in the LAM Action office on 0115 8231934. We can provide you with valuable insight and planning tools to assist you.

Each year, LAM patients and their families and friends conduct a wide variety of events to raise funds on our behalf. We’ve listed below just some of the ideas that people have successfully pursued.

How to set up your own fund-raising webpage

LAM Action has accounts with JustGiving and Virgin Money Giving, and it is simple to set up your own fund- raising webpage. If you access the JustGiving website through the LAM Action link, it immediately populates the form with the LAM Action charity details.

  • Go to www.justgiving.com/lamaction
  • This takes you to the general LAM Action page on JustGiving, and gives you three options – the large “Donate” button at the top right hand side, or underneath that there is “Find a friend” on the left or “Make a page” on the right hand side.
  • Click on the “make a page” button and follow the instructions

Virgin Money Giving also have simple click through instructions to set up your page. Go to www.uk.virginmoneygiving.com/giving/and click on ‘Start Fundraising’ and you’ll be up and running in no time.
