I HAVE AN INJURY AND NOW I CAN'T TAKE PART IN THE EVENT I SIGNED UP FOR. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Please contact our Events team as soon as possible on events@centrepoint.org to let us know and we’ll discuss your options.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T REACH MY FUNDRAISING TARGET?

When you buy a Centrepoint charity place in an event, we ask you to reach a minimum fundraising target. The money you raise covers the cost of the event place and administration fees that Centrepoint have to pay for you to take part and helps us deliver the services we provide to homeless young people.

 

If you're concerned you won’t reach your fundraising target, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. We're on hand to help you out with tips and ideas that will help you reach your target and we may be able to extend your deadline so that you have that little bit longer to fundraise.

HOW DO I PAY IN MY FUNDRAISING?

You can donate to your own online giving page and it will be sent directly to Centrepoint.
