The AGSD-UK 2015 conference was a great success:

I can't thank you and the AGSD-UK team enough for the superb organisation of the conference this year! The workshops and range of speakers was fantastic. It was so good to meet the key physicians who are helping with the condition. Another incredible outcome of the conference was that our daughter made two friends the same age as her whom we intend to meet with and to keep in contact with. As the condition is rare it is invaluable that she has friends to share her struggles with. It is also great that my husband and I now have friends who are GSD parents too! What a fantastic thing you do - thank you so much, from all of us!
– Victoria - sponsored events made easy!

This is a great way to collect sponsorship to help the AGSD (UK). It has already been used very successfully by our London Marathon runners. So if you are thinking of a sponsored run, a parachute jump, a mountain climb, or perhaps a head shave (!) - this is the site for you.

As a registered charity AGSD (UK) is signed up with the Just Giving organisation. It operates a web site which makes it easy for people to collect sponsorship of their activities in aid of a charity of their choice.

  • It is FREE for you to use.
  • Enables you to easily set up a web page to promote your event.
  • Your friends and colleagues (and anyone on the web!) can easily sponsor you.
  • They can securely pay on-line by credit card.
  • And leave their goodwill message on your web page.
  • Everyone can see how your sponsorship is getting on.

Just Giving collects back the tax on all donations where Gift Aid is applicable, increasing contributions by 25%. The total monies are transferred straight to AGSD's bank account. There is a small commission payable by AGSD (UK), but this is a very efficient and effective way of handling the whole process. We would encourage you to use it.
