Our Story

Rowing a million metres and breaking world records are not on the agenda for most of us, let alone those who are reaching the grand age of 80.However, Harry Townsend is not like most people. At a time when he should really be thinking of hanging up his trainers and settling down to tend his fantasy garden in West Sussex, the prolific fundraiser is back on the case, planning on one final extreme challenge.Harry is aiming to row a million metres and is hoping to break a world record by getting a million people to sponsor him; this being the highest amount of sponsors for one person for one event.After his wife Myfanwy died of melanoma in 1999 Harry put his energy raising awareness of this most dangerous type of skin cancer, aiming to ensure it doesn’t happen to anyone else. He set up a charity, the Myfanwy Townsend Melanoma Research Fund, and to kick start fundraising, decided to undertake a few sporting challenges including:• CLIMBING Mount Kilimanjaro• TREKKING the Grand Canyon (rim to rim)• RUNNING the Death Valley Marathon• WALKING the 500 mile Pilgrim Trail• PUSHING his wheelbarrow across New ZealandTo top this he celebrated his 70th birthday by completing the gruelling 5 day ‘100km of the Sahara race’.

Got any Questions

See our FAQs or visit the Help Centre for more resources

Is there any cost to the challenger or to the cause?

No, GoRaise is completely free to use for challengers and causes. The only cost is to the retailer

Why do the retailers make a donation?

When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.

Will we end up paying more for goods and services?

No, you are not charged anything extra. You buy directly from supplier websites accessed via GoRaise so you pay the same as anyone else. In fact – our users are able to take advantage of many exclusive offers and promotions so you will often find a better deal with suppliers through GoRaise. If you have a preferred supplier not currently listed on GoRaise.co.uk, please let us know and we will help them sign up.

Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?

There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.

How much of the donation does GoRaise take?

We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.

Which causes can we raise money for?

You can support any good cause, from small community groups, national charities or your own company foundations. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added very easily for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, company foundations, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
