When you take on a challenge or organise a fundraising event for Shannon Trust, you help us make sure no one is left out of learning.


Whatever your goal, there’s a challenge event for you; whether that’s running 5km, taking on a triathlon, or giving up a favourite treat for a month. You could take part in a pre-organised event, or come up with your own fundraising idea. Simply set your challenge and ask people to sponsor you to help raise funds for Shannon Trust.

Paying in your fundraising


Online donations

If you’ve decided on an activity, it’s time to set up your JustGiving fundraising page. That way your friends and family can make donations online, and the funds raised will come directly to Shannon Trust.

Offline donations

If you’re collecting offline donations, fill in a donation form and make a cheque payable to Shannon Trust, then send them to Freepost SHANNON TRUST. It’s a short address, but your donation will make its way to us.
