Collecting sponsorship money

Please remember to follow up with your friends and family to collect sponsorship money. We hope that The Marsden March 2017 will raise more than £1.7 million to support the work of The Royal Marsden, and we need your sponsorship money to achieve this.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship?

We ask all our walkers to raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship. Have a look at our tips on how to fundraise.

I need help fundraising 

Please see our fundraising hints and tips.

What happens if I don’t reach the minimum target?

This is a charity event and the aim is to raise money for The Royal Marsden and so we ask that every walker tries their best to raise a minimum of £150. We reserve the right to refuse registration to walkers who have previously taken part in The Marsden March and not raised sponsorship.

Can I take part but not raise money?

No, it is a sponsored event to raise money for the charity. We ask all participants to endeavour to raise a minimum of £150 each.

How do I set up a JustGiving page?

A JustGiving fundraising page is the best way for you to collect sponsorship and manage your online fundraising. You can set up a page using the link below:

Make a fundraising page - JustGiving


If you are walking as part of a team, you can either create one page for the whole team or each member can create their own page and then group them together as a team. Find out more about creating a fundraising team.

Please wait for confirmation of your registration before setting up your JustGiving page. We also ask that you do not reactivate your page from previous years as it confuses our systems and your sponsorship will not be accounted for.

If you have any problems with setting up your page please call the JustGiving support team on 0845 078 2063.

I have offline sponsorship, where do I send it?

Please send it to: The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, Downs Road, Sutton, Surrey, SM2 5PT.

Where can I get a paper sponsorship form?

Please see our fundraising pack page where you can download and print off a paper sponsorship form, or please call 020 8770 0279 and we can send some to you in the post. 

What’s the fundraising deadline?

The fundraising deadline is 19 June 2017. Please make sure that you have collected and handed in all your sponsorship money by this time. Your JustGiving page will have the expiry date set automatically.
