How do I send in sponsorship?
The easiest way to collect sponsorship is to set up a Justgiving page here; this way your family and friends can make quick, safe online donations to support your challenge. The money you raise on your JG page will then transfer straight to the Organiser, Kisharon, so you don’t have to do anything else. If you prefer to collect cash and cheques (payable to Kisharon) in the traditional way, they can be sent in to: Kisharon, First Floor, 333 Edgware Road, London, NW9 6TD. Please include a note or covering letter (make sure you include your name and address) so we know which participant(s) to attribute the donations to.
