5k?? Wow that's the most I've never heard of. Without being disrespectful to you're small charity which I'm sure does fantastic work the bigger well known charities usually ask 2k max!
Thing about a small charity it's harder for the person who's fundraising to get more money out of folk than say if the were raising for a well known charity like McMillan or similar.
You're best bet may be to approach someone who's benefited directly or a family member of someone who has benefited.
Sadly no matter who takes the place I think you're target should be around £1500 as most people who want to do it have their place sorted as training has started/ about to start. There's a lot of charity choice out there.
