The Nairnshire Challenge is a charity fundraising event, thus sponsorship targets are set. Each participant is asked to raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship.
Collecting Sponsorship Money
Sponsorship should be arranged through JustGiving, with whom we are registered as Nairn Rotary Club – Nairnshire Challenge. Setting up your own sponsorship page on their site can make the whole process of sponsorship much easier. Just click on the following link – JustGiving
One of the benefits of arranging sponsorship through JustGiving is that it facilitates the collection of Gift Aid from the Government. Challengers can increase the value of their sponsorship by 20% by asking sponsors to fully complete the Gift Aid details if they are a qualifying UK taxpayer – this costs them nothing but allows tax to be recovered and added to the total sponsorship. To be valid for Gift Aid purposes the address on the form of each sponsoring donor must be a home address and NOT a business address. The home address MUST also have a Post Code.
Sponsorship not through JustGiving
If you prefer not to use JustGiving, you can collect sponsorship the old fashioned way. A form is available below.
Please note that there is a deadline for returning sponsorship money. Money collected outwith (or in addition to) JustGiving should be sent to us at the address below within two months of the event. Cheques should be made payable to The Rotary Club of Nairn and sent to The Treasurer, Nairnshire Challenge, c/o Mount Pleasant, Sandown Road, Nairn, IV12 5NW
