Supporter Toolkit

At a time when the nation is pulling together to help one another your kindness and generosity means more to us than ever. That’s why we’ve put together this Covid-19 Toolkit. Whatever support you can give, you can help us to get CLDF through this.

Make a donation

We appreciate how generous you are already with your time and money, but if there is anything else you can spare to help us to continue to provide vital information and support to families it would mean a great deal to us and to the vulnerable children and their families.

We are determined to carry on providing the vital information and support that our young people and their families need. To do this we are asking for your help. Any donations you can spare, big or small, will mean a great deal to us and to the people we support. You can find further information about how we are responding to the current crisis here and donate by clicking the button below.

Support Ada’s Fundraising

Little Ada Butterfield is just five years old and is running a whopping 2.6 miles to help us fill the gap in our finances caused by COVID-19. See Ada’s story and how you can support her here 

Take on your own 2.6 challenge

We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April to support CLDF and help to save the UK’s charities.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in fundraising income. In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event. We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support CLDF. Read more here.

Raise awareness online

Sharing key messages about CLDF will really help us raise awareness and funds. If you want ideas, below are some examples of social media posts that you can share or edit. You can also keep an eye out on our social channels and share our posts too.

  • At a time we are all uniting behind the NHS, charities that work in partnership with the health service also desperately need our support. Children’s Liver Disease Foundation is asking for your help to survive. https://childliverdisease.org/funding-crisis-for-health-charities-an-open-letter-from-cldfs-chief-executive/
  • A charity close to my heart, Children’s Liver Disease Foundation has been hugely affected by a fall in income whilst working to maintain vital services for poorly children and their families. They help to protect the NHS, relieving liver teams of pressure by supporting patients on a one-to-one basis and providing up-to-date information for young people with a liver disease and their families. Please donate here: https://www.childliverdisease.org/donate
  • The Coronavirus pandemic, as well as being a health crisis, has had a severe impact on organisations. Fundraising across the charity sector has been dramatically reduced – Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity I support, is no exception.
    They continue to be there for our families and young people impacted by childhood liver disease. They still want to be able to offer essential information and emotional support wherever it is needed, whether that relates to concerns over the Coronavirus or the many other issues concerning childhood liver disease.

Lobby your MP

The COVID-19 crisis has had a huge impact on many charities and CLDF is no exception. It is particularly hard on charities like ours who have seen demand for their information and support services increase whilst dealing with a huge drop in income. We have had to furlough over half of our staff.
Currently the only assistance available to us and many other charities is the furlough scheme which will still leave a huge hole in our finances as we try desperately to maintain services to the families and young people we support. Please email your MP with the message below – with your name and your MP’s name inserted – or print it off and post it to them. Details of where to find your MP are here.
