Team VSA charity places

Join Team VSA at the holiday home of the Royal Family… for Run Balmoral 2020! 

By raising money in aid of VSA you are helping us to change the lives of people here in the North East of Scotland.

  • Almost 40 services based in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire
  • VSA is the north-east’s biggest charity and the UK’s largest city social care charity
  • 95p in every £1 donated goes directly to charitable activity.
  • VSA provides the best of care for the best of lives to our local community.

If you wish to have one of our VSA charity places, all we ask for in return is that you raise a minimum of £100 for a 5k and £150 for a 10k. Register for a VSA place here


To collect donations online you can set up a fundraising page here. There is also an option to set up a team page if you’re planning to run as a group. If you prefer to use a paper sponsorship form download a copy below or contact our fundraising team who will be happy to email or post you a copy.

Sponsorship Form 

For more details please contact the fundraising team on 01224 212021 or email where a member of the team will be able to provide further information including our minimum sponsorship requirements. 

Where will my sponsorship go?

Whether you decide to run for VSA in general or for a particular VSA service – all money raised will support the most vulnerable people and their families living in our community.

Running pack

Run Balmoral will post a running pack directly to your home address, usually a week before the event. We will also send out a fundraising pack including your very own VSA running vest or t-shirt to your home address – which you can wear during training and on race day!

On the day

The VSA fundraising team will be there to cheer you across the finish line! Our charity marquee is a great meeting place for your friends and family and we’d love the opportunity to meet you and say thank you in person too. Enjoy some snacks and drinks and join us for a team photo whilst you wear your hard earned medal with pride.


CharityCheckout is VSA’s preferred online donation platform, this allows us to establish and strengthen our supporter relationships. You will register onto the platform, create a log-in and then receive a confirmation notification. VSA do not pay any individual fees for this platform.
