Hi. I am in the ballot for the VLM but when I entered I didn't select a charity to run for. The thing is, I would like to run in aid of my local sports club. It's in a tiny village in rural warwickshire and they are under threat of closing down due to lack of funding. They are regestered as a charity but i could not see any way of chosing to run for them from the VLM website.

 Any ideas?

You don't need to chose anything on the VLM website.  If you get a ballot place you can raise money for whoever you like, using justgiving or whatever.

Luke, if you get in via the ballot you can run for whoever you want to.

O.K cool. thanks for that. Just had a look on the justgiving website and it looks quite good. Fingers crossed for getting a ballot place!

Luke, for very small charities there are better options than JG - check out CharityChoice which the co-op runs - no costs for charities or donors . The charity do have to claim the gift aid back themselves but I'm told this isn't hard.
