As I reach the grand old age of 30 in 2017 I have decided to undertake 30 marathons during the course of the year, aiming to run two a month plus a few! This will be the biggest challenge I have faced so generous donations are welcome! The ABF give a lifetime of support to soldiers and veterans
Mark Beauchamp - 30 marathons in 2017 started this fundraiser on 11/8/17
Since 1944 ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the national charity of the British Army, has been providing financial assistance to all soldiers and their families when in need. When a soldier leaves the Army they are still part of our family and eligible for our help. If the Regiments and Corps are the front line of Army support then we are the backbone, providing vital support to Regiments, delivery charities and the Army family.
Last year we provided nearly 6,000 individual grants at a cost of just over £5 million, with a further £2.9 million provided to support other specialist service charities. We simply couldn’t do this without the support of the public, veterans and serving soldiers. Legacies from our generous supporters last year accounted for just over £2 million to the Charity.
Our eldest beneficiary was a 108 year old World War II widow needing assistance paying her care home fees. The youngest was a 5 month old baby of a serving soldier who needed funding for medical equipment.
The complexity and cost of supporting serving and retired soldiers and their dependents is rising steadily, year on year. This means we are more dependent than ever on the generosity of our supporters in order that we are not faced with making the painful choice of making essential grants to individuals and supporting delivery charities, or not.
Please contact Grace Akintokun if you feel that you could help support these courageous men and women for the many years to come.

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.
