Keen to get involved with Gumboots and our projects?
If you’d like to support Gumboots UK, there are a number of ways you can get involved.
Start by Joining Gumboots on Facebook to keep up to date on events and fundraising. Also see news and photos from the projects in South Africa. Facebook is a great way to let others know what you are doing and thinking to help Gumboots. Sharing ideas and experiences can motivate and inspire others, your posts and comments are very welcome!
Fundraising ideas and tips
Anyone can plan a fundraising event. Whether it be a fun run, car boot sale, cake sale, or serious marthaton or physical challenge. We’ve even had a Welly tossing event, which certainly could become an annual event.
Gumboots is a member charity of Justgiving. Use the Justgiving website to create your own fundraising page. It’s quick to set up and easy to use, while secure for your friends and family to donate. It also means gift aid can be claimed on all donations by UK tax payers, which can make a considerable difference to your fundraising efforts.
Give as you Live
Shop with your favourite stores and they’ll donate to Gumboots at no extra cost to you. Make a difference by shopping online!
This is easy and a great idea! Try it next time you make a purchase over the internet.
