Prudential Ride LONDON-SURREY 100 - Sunday, 29th July 2018

We have 2 spaces available for cyclists who would like to fundraise for us and take part in this cycling event in 2018 or 2019. The 2018 race starts at 06:00 in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (on Sunday, 29th July 2018), then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it's a truly spectacular event for all involved. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 finishes on The Mall in central London, shortly before 150 professional cyclists race in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic on a similar route. We are looking for cyclists who would be happy to fundraise for our charitable work but we are not setting a fundraising target as any money you can raise will be greatly appreciated.  However, please note that our entry fee per cyclist was £275. If you are interested, please get in touch on 020 7385 8850 or email us at info@fulhamgoodneighbours.org

By shopping!

Give As You Live - This is another clever way of raising money for us when you shop online. All the big retailers are signed up – and because it’s the stores who donate, it adds nothing to the price of the shopping. Please try it here.

 

If you are shopping by Amazon - please shop via https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ - and select us as your chosen charity. Amazon will then donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to us. 

Regular donations and legacies

If you would like to set up a standing order to donate to us regularly, please ask us for our bank account details.

Please consider making a bequest to Fulham Good Neighbours in your will. Remember to quote our full name, address and charity number – 1113752.

Gift Aid

The scheme allows us to claim back tax on donations made by UK taxpayers and this is equivalent to an extra 25% on your donation.

If you are sending us a cheque, please complete and return a Charity Gift Aid Declaration to allow us to claim.

If you are donating online or by text message, then Virgin Money Giving or JustTextGiving will reclaim Gift Aid and pay it to us.
