Charity events calendar deadline nears

Charities are invited to add their events to the UK’s most comprehensive list of fundraising and awareness events for 2018 – the ChangeStar Charity Calendar.

The calendar is managed by the fundraising and social change agency ChangeStar, and provides a free way for charities to promote their events online to the public at www.charitycalendar.org.

The ChangeStar Charity Calendar, featuring over 260 events, has been running for three years and again there is high demand for next year’s edition. A wide range of charities use it – from the biggest (such as Macmillan Cancer Support and UNICEF) to local charities. Some of the best-known fundraising events in the UK are listed, such as BBC Children in Need, the London Marathon, Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and Comic Relief.

Charities can list up to five events completely free of charge. These can be sponsored challenge events, such as runs, bike rides and treks, ‘sacrifice’ challenges such as giving up alcohol or chocolate and awareness days such as Fairtrade Fortnight and International Women’s Day.

Charities should submit their entries by 8th December 2017 to be included in the first 2018 edition by completing the form at https://www.changestar.co.uk/charity-calendar/add-event
