We currently don’t stock promotional balloons, however we do have pens, wristbands and leaflets available to send out upon request.
Don’t worry this is easy to fix. First thing you’ll need to do is:
- Email the National Mind fundraising team (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dorset Mind (email@example.com), explain that you didn’t realise the difference between Dorset Mind and National Mind and would much prefer your donations to stay local.
- Once you’ve had the go-ahead from National Mind, send a link and screenshot of your fundraising page to Dorset Mind (we will then deal directly with Mind to transfer over your funds).
- Close your fundraising page and set up a new one for Dorset Mind.
If you have set up your own event or challenge the simple answer is no. You can set your own target for motivation and to encourage donations.
However, if you have signed up to one of Dorset Mind’s events such as the Wing Walking or Skydive, then there will be a target you’ll need to meet in order for Dorset Mind to authorise your place. If you’re having trouble reaching your target, we can discuss moving the date or paying for your own place.
Our policy, as with many other charities, is that Gift Aid is not included in sponsorship targets. If you need help with your sponsorship, please get in touch.
If you registered for a place with us and paid our registration fee, this is non-refundable and your registration fee will be kept as a donation to Dorset Mind. If you are an ‘own-place’ participant having purchased your place directly from the race organisers instead then you might be able to get a refund, but you will have to speak directly to the organisers who will make the decision.
JustGiving is a fantastic way to fundraise for charity; its online system is very user-friendly and the money is transferred directly to us. Over the years JustGiving has helped raise £1.5billion for charities. However, there is a cost for using this excellent service and therefore refunding individuals who have sponsored you would actually cost Dorset Mind more money.
Whilst we are sorry that you are no longer able to be part of #TeamDorsetMind we hope that your generous friends and family are happy for their support to be kept as a donation.
For all other fundraising enquires email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01202 091183 and someone from the fundraising team will get back to you.
