Fundraise for Tourettes Action

Tourettes Action relies entirely on the support of people like you. We receive no support from government, so fundraising by our supporters is essential for our work with people living with Tourette Syndrome (TS).

There are lots of ways to get involved with fundraising for TA. Many of our supporters collect sponsorship for taking part in an organised challenge, like running marathons, walking challenges or skydiving. Others apply for ballot places in organised events or devise their own such as music concerts, comedy nights, bake sales or garden parties.

These are all great ways of raising money for TA and spreading the word about TS, and we are here to support you all the way.

Other ways to fundraise 

You can raise FREE money for Tourettes Action when you shop online:

  • With 1000's of retailers listed, you can become a valued fundraiser from the comfort of your sofa and do all your shopping online, simply by visiting The Giving Machine
  • Facebook has introduced a new feature that lets you easily launch a fundraising campaign to raise money and awareness for the causes you care most about. This is not only an effective and simple way of generating funds to support Tourettes Action, but also an exciting and powerful way to make a stand for the TS community by raising and spreading awareness through the power of social media. Read the Facebook fundraising documents on the right hand side to see how you can set up a strong, dynamic page that will draw people to your cause. Please note that 'Tourette Syndrome (UK) Association Ltd' is our registered charity name and this is the not-for-profit organisation you will need to select, as 'Tourettes Action' will not feature as an option
