We are so excited about Localgiving’s #LocalHero campaign! Whether stretching muscles or bathing in beans, in April people across the country will be raising money for local charities in a bid to be crowned Localgiving’s Local Hero!

Local Hero will be launched on 1st April and will run until 30th April. All participants need to do is think up a challenge, set up a fundraising page for The Log Cabin on Localgiving and persuade as many people as possible to donate.

Throughout April, fundraisers will be ranked on a leaderboard according to the number of unique online donors who sponsor their page. At the end of the campaign, Localgiving will award £5,000 in prizes to the causes supported by the top 20 fundraisers, with a top prize of £1,000 going to the cause of the fundraiser who has secured the most donors. You can find full details about the campaign here.

We’d be incredibly grateful if you would consider setting up a fundraising page and becoming The Log Cabin’s Local Hero!

How will the money raised be spent?

Any money you raise for us will go towards funding our after school and holiday playschemes. There is a real positive benefit to the children who attend. Often children with additional needs or disabilities can remain isolated but at The Log Cabin, children have fun, make friends and gain a sense of achievement and self worth. Just imagine what we could do with an extra £1,000!

How can you get involved?

If you think you could be our Local Hero, then please visit our Localgiving page here: and click ‘Fundraise for us’ to get started. You can choose any challenge you wish, there are some ideas below. Only donations made between the 1st and 30th of April will count towards the campaign, but your challenge can take place at any time and you can get your page set up and ready to go right away!

Go on, be a Local Hero!
