Fundraising through Facebook

Social media is a great way to show your support for Longfield. Did you know that it’s now possible to fundraise directly through Facebook?

Birthday fundraisers on Facebook are simple to set up, and give you the opportunity to show your support and to connect your friends with a cause that’s important to you.

Every donation goes directly to Longfield to help us continue to care for and support adults in Gloucestershire with life-limiting illnesses, and their families and carers too.

Facebook Fundraisers

Got a birthday coming up? You can celebrate your big day in a special way by setting up a Facebook Fundraiser in support of Longfield. In fact, Facebook will even send you a reminder a fortnight before your big day giving you the option to ‘donate your birthday’ in celebration of the occasion.
