Already have a fundraising event in mind? Open a fundraising page where your guests/supporters can donate online for it.

Around 3,000 people in the UK and Ireland have Multiple System Atrophy, which leads to premature death – currently there is no cure. That’s why we’re asking people to show their support by hosting a Milk, Sugar and Tea Party.

You can have a scrumptious tea party at home, work, school or through zoom, and help raise vital funds to support our MSA Health Care Professionals. Our HCP team provide telephone and email support services for people with MSA, attend in-person and digital Support Groups which are a lifeline for the MSA community during these challenging times.

It couldn’t be easier to host your own in person or virtual tea party, just open a Zoom account and schedule your Tea Party event. Then click on START FUNDRAISING below to ask friends and family to donate to MSAT in exchange for the Zoom tea party invitation.

Download our Tea party guide HERE to find out more or order your Tea party pack below.

You can also get our special Tea Party mug from our online shop – perfectly branded in the Trust colours!

Milk Sugar And Tea party

Congratulations on the great news! Now you can make the Trust part of your big day and make the day even more special. We understand you have a lot on your mind when it comes to planning a wedding. Therefore, we have made it easier for you – here are a few great suggestions to say “I do” while fundraising for the Trust :

Accept donations to the Trust instead of traditional wedding gifts from your guests. The easiest way to do this would be to open a Fundraising page. Your page becomes your very own wedding gift list! You can keep track of the “gifts” that your guests have given and they can also leave good wishes and messages for the big day. Set up your page here to start fundraising now!

Have our Wedding favour cards on the place settings or when you are thanking your guests after the wedding. Cards say that a donation was made to MSA Trust in lieu of favour. Buy the cards from our online shop.

Support us through a Facebook birthday fundraiser.

We spend so much of our time on Facebook, now there is a way to support the Trust through it. To start up a Birthday Fundraiser in aid of the Trust or make a one off donation, head over to our Facebook page.



Thinking of sending a birthday card to a loved one?



You can now send e-Cards and support Multiple System Atrophy Trust.

Just choose your design, enter your message and send it via email to your family and friends. Great opportunity to raise funds for us as you can make a donation to MSA Trust in lieu of the cost of sending greeting cards. You can even opt for the recipient to see that you have supported a charity close to your heart!

Guide to fundraising in school:

  • 1.Get the backing of senior staff Arrange a meeting with your head teacher or Deputy Head to explain MSA and your connection to it.
  • 2. Do your research – Come to your meeting with ideas of what the school could do to raise money. There is the tried and true method of holding a non-uniform day, but there is a list to download at the bottom of this page with dozens of other ideas.
  • 3. Brand the fundraisingMake sure your classmates and teachers know what they are fundraising for. Arrange an assembly or some time during classes for you or one of your teachers to tell the rest of the students about the condition, and why it is so important to fundraise and support those living with MSA. If you have a connection to the cause you are willing to share with them, please do. Nothing will inspire people to work hard and support a cause than a direct link to someone they know.
  • 4. Send the fundraising in – Collect the money and send it to us here at MSA Trust, we will then get an acknowledgement letter out to you and to your school to thank you for all your fantastic work.

The individuals and families we support are from many different faiths and cultures. We work closely with families to ensure that their faith and cultural needs are respected when using our services.

Faith groups and congregations can support our vital work by fundraising throughout the year or through one-off events around special occasions or devoting one meeting to discussing multiple system atrophy .

Our most popular fundraising ideas for faith groups include:

  • Raising funds through a religious festival such as Diwali, Ramadan or Christmas
  • Holding a collection at a service with a speaker from the MSA Trust
  • Holding an event at your place of worship, for example a concert or fayre.

If you would like more information about the trust or would like to hold a fundraising event for the Trust this way, please contact the team.
