Fundraising Made Easy

Donating to the Herts Hike 2017 is easy:
  1. You can download a Sponsorship Form here Herts Hike Sponsorship form 2017 – please make sure you collect plenty of Gift Aid envelopes on the day of the hike so we can claim the extra 25p on each £1 pledge you collect.
  2. You can donate directly to the Herts Hike for 2017 via our Just Giving page.  All donors will get the chance to leave their names and a message if they want to.  You can opt for Gift Aid too.
