Sponsored walks - frequently asked questions

Here are the answers to all your burning questions about our sponsored walks.  

If you still can’t find the answers you’re looking for then please feel free to contact your local Christian Aid office.

How do I take part in a Christian Aid sponsored walk? 

Every year, we have walks going on all around the country to raise money to fight poverty. And we're adding new ones all the time. 

  1. Find a walk near you - we have listings for lots of walks happening all over England and Scotland.

  2. To register, simply fill in the online registration form to take part in the walk you are interested in. You will then receive a sponsorship pack, with full details about your walk, such as where it starts and what time it begins.

There is a contact listed for each walk should you need anything else, or if you have any questions about the walk you are taking part in.

Your sponsorship pack will have everything you need to help you raise money for Christian Aid.

It contains a sponsorship form so you can ask your friends and family to sponsor you and it will allow Christian Aid to claim Gift Aid. Download Christian Aid’s sponsorship form (PDF, 0.3mb).

You will also receive advice about setting up your own online sponsorship page, with examples of how the money you raise helps end poverty and some great fundraising ideas to help give your sponsorship an extra boost.   


Once I have raised the money, where do I send it?

Your sponsorship pack will contain a personalised paying-in slip so you can pay your money into Christian Aid. Full details of paying in your money will be included in your sponsorship pack.

Alternatively, if you have any cheques (made payable to Christian Aid), you can either post them to your local Christian Aid office or to our head office at:

Events Fundraising
Christian Aid
PO Box 100

Don’t forget to send us your completed sponsorship forms as well so we can claim Gift Aid. If you’d prefer, you can pay in your sponsorship money over the phone by calling us on 020 7523 2248.

What does Christian Aid do with the money I raise?

The money you raise will help make a difference to people around the world who need it most.
