MGF Register Charity Fund Raising


Since 2006 the MGF Register has supported a nominated charity throughout the year.

The Charity has been chosen by the Region organising the main Charity event of the year but is now chosen by the Committee who nominate charities with one to be chosen by the Chairman.

The MGF Register has raised & donated
£22,029.93
for Charity since 2006


Prostate Cancer UK  is the charity that the MGF Register is going to support in 2017.


The Regions will be collecting donations at various events throughout the year but the best method to donate is through our charity page as that will allow UK tax payers to gain Gift Aid to boost their personal donations at no cost to yourselves. We loose the Gift Aid option if we do a general collection so to ensure the tax man gives us the best deal for the charity, donations made through the charity page are the best option for the charity.


A little about Prostate Cancer UK  .......

Prostate Cancer UK fights to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. We find answers by funding ground-breaking research, we lead change by raising the profile of the disease and improving care. And we support men by providing vital information and services.


Further information can be found on Prostate Cancer UK  web site: https://prostatecanceruk.org/


Our donation page can be found at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/mgfregister2017


As previous years, donations through the Just Giving page will allow you to claim Gift Aid on personal donations. This will allow us to raise more money for Prostate Cancer UK with the tax man making an extra donation to the charity at no cost to yourself.
