Every year our supporters come up with fun and ingenious ways to fundraise for the Linda Norgrove Foundation. There are lots of different ways you can raise money for the Foundation, whether it’s holding a quiz night, organising a bring-and-buy sale, taking part in a challenge event, or encouraging others to sponsor you to try something new.
We suggest you keep it simple and choose something you’ll enjoy!

Over the past 10 years the Harris Tweed Ride has raised more than £5,000 for the Foundation. Many thanks to the organisers and all who take part.
The Linda Norgrove 10K was back in full strength in 2021, with entrants taking part across the world.

We were delighted to receive updates and photos from people walking, running and cycling their 10k elsewhere in the UK as well as France, Germany, Sweden, Rwanda, Nepal, Australia and Canada, among other countries.
