MSA Trust

Virtual Events

Welcome to a new world of fundraising!

Virtual events is a fresh and exciting way in which you can continue raising vital funds for our MSA community. Doing virtual fundraising means there is no need for a specific location but can be completed and shared online. It also gives you the freedom to fundraise wherever and whenever, you can!

Do a virtual active challenge

You can take part in any activity and set yourself any  distance goal whilst updating your progress to your sponsors. Our ‘Miles for MSAT’ challenge is a great interactive way to take on a challenge, click here or the tab for more information and get started.

 

OR

Host an online event

You can set up an fundraising event from the comfort of your own home. Using group interaction platforms like Zoom or House Party app can allow you to organise any community affair. Have a look at our ‘virtual quizzes & Competitions’ tab for some exciting ideas or ‘Milk Sugar And Tea Party‘ to host your online event.
