Get involved

Support Charity Link and change lives!

We can only change the lives of over 5,000 vulnerable people in need each year thanks to our amazing supporters! There are so many ways you get involved to make a difference. Read below for some ideas.

From organising your own fundraising activity, to supporting our events and challenges, volunteering, getting sponsored to tick something off your bucket list to encouraging your place of work or your local school to lend their support, you’ll be helping to provide essential items for people in need across Leicester, Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire. We also appreciate every kind donation, regular gift and legacy.

Due to our unique way of working (for every £10 raised or donated we can untap £50 from charitable trusts and benevolent funds across the UK – all of which goes to provide essential items for people in need) your support really will change lives.
