A member of the Barclays Team Macro Everest Challenge. The event was in support of their colleague, and Karen’s Woodridge Primary School friend, Tarun Mather. We are very grateful to Tarun for thinking of the Karen Morris Memorial Trust when facing his own Everest challenge. As he said, he is currently undergoing treatment for testicular cancer which tests his determination and resilience to the limit. Staff raised over £34,000 which will be matched by Barclays and with gift aid will bring the total to over £70,000, making it the largest fundraising event in the KMMT’s history!Click here if your company could help the KMMT

Many of our supporters mark the important milestones of their friends and family with this special gift, which we recognise with a celebratory certificate.
Share your Celebration with the KMMT
If you are celebrating a major milestone and you don't want any gifts, ask your guests to donate to the KMMT. At £30 per night’s stay in one of Karen's Homes, you and your guests can make a real difference.
Request a collecting box for your desk, shop counter, in your hallway and encourage your staff, visitors, family to lighten their pockets.
Recommend the KMMT as the ‘Charity of the Year’ for your company/school/community.
Remember Us in your Will
Remember the KMMT in your will. As a registered charity the KMMT is exempt from inheritance tax and can, therefore, receive the full value of your bequest.

Sponsorship (Corporate or Private)

Matching Gift Programmes
You can double, sometimes even triple your gift to the KMMT if you work for one of more than 1000 companies with matching gift programmes.
We regularly collect at outdoor events and shopping centres. The more collectors we have the more money raised!
Ways to offer us regular support
Just £5 a month over one year will fund two nights' accommodation.
Payroll giving/matching gifts: many companies have a matching gift programme, ie they will match any charitable donation made by their employees. Find out if your employer has one – or ask them to start one. If you are an employer, why not start one yourself?
Completing a gift aid form if you are a UK tax payer so the KMMT can claim from the government.
Self-Assessment Tax Return
Those who complete a self-assessment tax return can now nominate a charity to receive all or part of any repayment due which will be paid directly to the charity’s bank account and gift aid paid without the charity making a claim. Please quote our unique code QAG77YG.
Easyfundraising is a great way to raise money for charity and you don’t pay anything extra. For example, to buy a pair of shoes from John Lewis, instead of going to johnlewis.com directly, you first go to easyfundraising.org.uk. Click there through to John Lewis to make your purchase (this tells John Lewis you came from easyfundraising). The price of the shoes is exactly the same. After you buy your shoes, John Lewis will give you a cash reward that you can turn into a donation for your good cause. Easyfundraising collects this and sends it on at no extra cost.
