Top charity fundraising events for 2019

If you’re looking for a new challenge to take on this year, then you’ve come to the right place. At Virgin Money Giving we encourage as many people as possible to get involved in fundraising events, so you can raise as much money as you can for charity.

What charity fundraising events are on?

There are lots of charity fundraising events happening in 2019 – including organised running, cycling and swimming events – and so we’ve pulled together a list of the top events happening around the country so you can see what’s on and get involved.

To find out more about each of the events listed, simply follow the website link detailed. Or, you can always visit a charity’s website to see what events they have planned, and if big events aren’t your thing then why not take part in your own fundraising challenge?
