Face-to-face fundraising is a cost-effective way for us to raise much-needed income to make it easier for people to walk, wheel and cycle.

Thanks to the kind generosity of our supporters, we’re able to connect people and places, create liveable neighbourhoods, transform the school run and deliver a happier, healthier commute.

Frequently asked questions

How do I recognise a IJ̳ fundraiser?

IJ̳ fundraisers wear green jackets, grey fleeces and grey or green t-shirts with the IJ̳ logo and IJ̳ photo ID.

Do face-to-face fundraisers accept cash?

No, our fundraisers aren’t allowed to accept cash. Our fundraisers are trained to only take donations through Direct Debit, this ensures maximum security for our supporters when donating.

Is it safe to give my bank details to a fundraiser?

All of our fundraisers are trained thoroughly to ensure they are compliant with GDPR. The devices we use to sign up new donors use an encrypted system to ensure maximum security.

One of the benefits of donating via Direct Debit is that you are protected by the Direct Debit Guarantee. This means if there’s an error with your direct debit then you’re entitled to a full and immediate refund.
