Win a £1000 donation with #MadeToMove and Lucozade

Our friends at Lucozade Sport have recently launched their #MadeToMove social campaign which gives London Marathon runners the chance to win £1000 for their chosen charity by getting 10 of their friends to run 1 mile each and post a selfie on Instagram. Come and join the new way of fundraising!

Over the competition there are 3 separate prize draws!

How do marathon runners get involved?

  • Take to Instagram and post something like this:
    “As you all know I am running the Virgin Money London Marathon and I need your help! Run/walk/jog a mile for me and upload a sweaty selfie and I could win £1000 for my charity courtesy of Lucozade Sport. Make sure to use the hashtag #MadeToMove”
  • Don’t forget to remind your friends to tag you and @ you on Instagram otherwise it won’t count!
  • Once 10 of your friends have run 1 mile and tagged you on Instagram, you will be in the running to win £1000 for your chosen charity. Look out for a direct message in your Instagram inbox!

For more information, check out the Lucozade Sport Instagram account or the website.

Win a £200 boost to your Edinburgh Kiltwalk fundraising page

The KiltWalk launch

The Kiltwalk is a fantastic charity event which raises funds for the most vulnerable children and families in Scotland. Kiltwalkers can pick whether to walk 6, 13 or 26 miles and can pick the charity that their funds go to – so “whether it’s your local playgroup or a well-known children’s charity, Kiltwalk is here to help“.

There are four events in Scotland and – thanks to the way the Kiltwalk is set up – every single penny you raise goes to the cause you have selected. The Glasgow, Aberdeen and Speyside Kiltwalks have been completed, but there is still one more to get involved with; the Edinburgh Kiltwalk on 18 September.

As a thank you to all the amazing fundraisers doing the Edinburgh Kiltwalk, we have a £200 donation to a Virgin Money Giving page to give to one amazing fundraiser. All you need to do is set up your fundraising page and receive at least one donation, and you could be in with a chance of winning this boost for your chosen charity. Every donation to your page will count as an entry to the competition.
