How to pay in your fundraising money

Online fundraising

We recommend that you set up your very own fundraising page (where you can add pictures, write some text about what you're doing and why, set your fundraising target) and then send the website link out to your friends, family and colleagues so that they can sponsor you easily and securely.

  • Set up your own secure fundraising page at www.virginmoneygiving.com
  • Please click here for a step by step guide on how to set up your own online fundraising page on virginmoneygiving
  • All money donated this way is collected straight away and transferred to Barnardo's, so you don't have to worry about collecting the money in and getting it to us safely. Gift Aid is claimed on our behalf as well, making the most of all of your donations
  • Please click here for a guide on how to make the most of your online fundraising on virgin money giving or Just Giving and smash your fundraising target well in advance of the event


Please use the online fundraising sites only for donations from individuals. If you have companies wishing to donate or have money raised from various sources i.e. raffles, cake sales, tickets to a fundraising event please do not pay this onto your online fundraising age as this money is therefore liable for commission. Instead please follow the steps below for offline fundraising.
