Fundraise for the Nystagmus Network

Do It Yourself Fundraising


Whether you’d like to help the Nystagmus Network support even more people who have nystagmus to be amazing, contribute to our investment in research or simply help us to continue our important work with the nystagmus community, we have lots of fundraising inspiration for you.

You can run a raffle, hold a cake sale, host a quiz night or whatever you want. We have hints and tips and all you need.

Bungee jump for nystagmus


The Nystagmus Network is offering a free bungee jump to anyone who can guarantee to raise at least £100 in sponsorship for the charity.

Your jump can take place at any one of 8 locations across the UK.

To apply, please email us at info@nystagmusnet.org.

Nystagmus Network on ebay


Are you taking the time at home as an opportunity to clean out some cupboards? Have you been decluttering?

What are you going to do with all your stuff? Sell it on ebay?

Great!

Did you know that every time you list an item for sale you can now nominate the Nystagmus Network to receive a percentage of your sale price? You’ll find us in the drop down menu.

It’s so easy to do and can make a big difference to a little charity like ours.

Your listing will carry a blue and yellow ribbon to show everyone it’s a charitable listing. It might even encourage more people to bid.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
