Join Team VSA
There is no entry fee for our places.
All we ask is our cyclists to raise a minimum of £600
By cycling for us, you’re helping to make a difference for your local community.

We have the facility for online and paper sponsorship.  Feel free to use either or both. 
You can set up a Virgin Giving page, register for a personal challenge and select VSA as your charity. You can set it up as a group page if you’re planning a team effort.  We find Virgin Giving is easiest – it’s paid directly to VSA and means no chasing friends and family for payment. Fundraising will send you a paper sponsorship.

Where will my sponsorship go?
You have the option to raise funds for VSA in general, where funds will go to the service that most needs them at that time, or for a particular VSA service.  We have more than 40 individual services under the VSA umbrella so there is a cause that’ll mean something to almost everyone.  A lot of people like to know where there money is spent - It’s nice to know your efforts have gone towards making life better for someone else.  You are more than welcome to visit any service you raise money for so they can see where your hard efforts go?  Please remember to state which service you are running for so we can make sure the service is credited with your sponsorship money.

Interested? Please fill-up the form below for a VSA guaranteed place.
