LymeAid UK relies on the help of people like you!

If you would like to fundraise for us and already have an event in mind there are 2 easy ways to get your sponsors donating. If you don't have an event in mind but would still like to help, check out our ideas below!

- You can download a sponsorship form from the bottom of the page (pdf or word format) and collect cash at or after the event, please encourage all your sponsors to tick the gift aid box if they are a UK taxpayer so we can get an extra 25p for each £1 donated!

- Or you can set up a fundraising page on JustGiving. JustGiving will collect gift aid on every valid donation quickly but do charge a percentage of donations.

Funds raised can be donated by cheque made out to LymeAid UK or by bank transfer, just email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for address details. Contact us if you need to use another method or just want to talk about your fundraising idea.

Sponsorship ideas:

  • Give up your favourite vice for a month (e.g. chocolate, caffeine, smoking, alcohol) 
  • Swim the length of the channel in your local pool (20.6 miles)
  • Climb a mountain
  • Wheelchair marathon (if a friend with Lyme will lend you one!)

Or how about having fun with one of these events:

  • Tea and cake afternoon
  • Bring and buy sale
  • Quiz night
  • Manicure party

You can also raise funds for us at no cost to yourself by using EasyFundraising, simply sign up, install the toolbar (donation reminder) and click 'activate donation' whenever prompted whilst doing your online shopping. This will raise money for us when you shop on many popular websites, there are over 2700 websites that you can use this on.



We can only help our patients with the help of our amazing fundraisers to date so thanks in no particular order to:
