WALK FOR KIT 2021 - East Dean, East Sussex, 11 July

On Sunday 11 July, an army of KTF supporters will be walking to raise funds for the charity and increase awareness of neonatal herpes. 

The event is firmly becoming a family favourite appealing to all ages and abilities - we have raised over £3,000 so far which enabled us to fund our first research project and start our education programme.

More information about Walk for Kit can be found here.

SPLASH FOR KIT - East Sussex, date TBC

EVENT SUBJECT TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS - New date to be arranged when swim lessons restart.

Splash for Kit is a sponsored splash taking place in Little Dippers and The Little Swim School classes. All the babies and toddlers will be invited to come to their swimming lesson in pyjamas and undertake a splash based challenge set by their teachers. 

The little ones will be splashing to save the lives of babies so it will be an extra special day for them and their families. 

We can't wait to see the little otters in action!

More information including details for parents and carers can be found here.



Are you participating in a sporting event or challenge and would like to raise money for KTF? If so, thank you! Our preferred fundraising platform is VirginGiving.

If you would like a paper sponsorship form then please click here for one you can print.


We would love you to organise your own event and donate the proceeds to help put an end to preventable neonatal death in the UK. Events our supporters have held so far are cake sales, supper clubs and plant sales and we have even had donations from a wedding!

If you can, please ask all your supporters to complete and return a Gift Aid form. This allows us to claim 25% of the value of the donation from HMRC at no extra cost to the donor.

Please use the contact form to request our bank details if required.



There are lots of other ways to help KTF financially without spending a penny yourself. Here are a few ideas:

- Start a Facebook fundraiser for your birthday or another special occasion. These are easy to set up and it is often very pleasantly surprising how many friends choose to donate. 

- Send your used inkjet cartridges to Recycle4Charity. Each used cartridge is worth £1 to us.

- Have a clearout and sell some items on eBay. You can choose to support Kit Tarka Foundation when you do by donating a percentage of your sale proceeds.

- Donate good quality secondhand clothes via Thrift+ who will send you a bag for free for you to fill up and drop off at a collection point near you. You can choose to donate solely to Kit Tarka Foundation or take half as a shopping credit for yourself.

- Help support us when you shop online. Use easyfundraising to shop with over 3,300 retailers. Every time you shop you'll raise a free donation to Kit Tarka Foundation, It's that easy. If you work for a company please ask the person responsible for business purchases like stationery to sign up too.  Find out more here.

- We are registered with Amazon Smile so if you already use Amazon for your shopping you can support KTF with every eligible purchase at no cost to you. All you need to do is start your shopping at and choose Kit Tarka Foundation as your supported charity.
