North Dorset Cycle Ride - Sponsorship

The important bit about getting sponsored

Having to cycle 50, 25, or even 12 miles is not the most challenging part of the event. The task of finding sponsors and later collecting the sponsorship money is the tricky bit, but this is also the most essential part. Ask your colleagues at work, your friends, your employers, and other firms and pubs in your area to sponsor you. Offer to wear some form of identification to advertise the identity of your commercial sponsors. Tell your sponsors how far you will ride, and ensure they complete the name, first line of their address, postcode and the amount they will donate on your sponsorship form.

This year we want to increase the number of riders to over 300 this year, and hope to raise funds over £20,000.00

After the ride, you will need to collect the sponsorship money. When you have collected all the money, you have three options: 

Send to the following address:

The North Dorset Cycle Ride
c/o Shean and Hare Ltd
22c Wincombe Business Park

A cheque made payable to Rotary Club of Shaftesbury and include your Sponsorship Form.

Alternatively, pay money into Rotary Club of Shaftesbury, or any Lloyds bank, using the Bank sort code and account number: 30-65-21, 33170160 and post your Sponsorship form to the address above. Please add a reference to any Bank Transfers of your surname and TNDCY, for example, ‘surname_TNDCR’.

Important notice about Gift Aid

If those of your sponsors who pay income tax tick the GIFT AID box on your Sponsorship Form, this will substantially increase the money you raise for our charities because we can claim back an additional 25% of their donation from the Inland Revenue at no cost to your sponsor! 

Ask those of your sponsors who pay income tax if they are willing to tick the Gift Aid Box on your Sponsorship Form. If they tick the box, ensure that their full name, address’s first line, and postcode are shown on the form.
