What you can do to support Rob Burrow and his family

The sell out crowd at Emerald Headingley for Rob Burrow and Jamie Jones-Buchanan on Sunday was an incredible out pouring of support for Rob Burrow following his diagnosis with motor neurone disease.

You can still donate to the online fund to support Rob and his family of three young children under eight.


You can simply donate any fee to a special Virgin Money Giving page we have set up with all the donations going to the fund.  www.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/robburrowIf you are a UK tax payer you can also tick the option to gift aid your donation. Gift Aid is great because it means the fund will get extra money added to your donations at no extra cost to you. For every £1 donated, the fund will receive £1.25 when you add Gift Aid.


Think about what you could do in 2020 to raise money to support Rob’s fund. There are loads of great fundraising ideas out there and the New Year is a great time to set yourself a challenge. Loads of fans have already organised their own event and there is no need to contact us to set yours up.

If you wanted to organise a fundraising event or raise funds by carrying out a challenge, you can now go onto Rob’s campaign page at www.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/robburrow and there is a button at the top that states ‘Start Fundraising’. This means you can set up your event/challenge and all money will go directly to Rob’s campaign.  Buy using this method, every UK tax payer who sponsors your event can also add Gift Aid to your final total. Please note, if you use the online method to run a raffle for a specific prize, these donations must not be Gift Aided.

If you have already carried out a fundraising event or fundraising challenge, the best way to then donate the raised funds is via the fundraising page www.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/robburrow please remember though that if you have collected money from other people you can not Gift Aid this amount, legally you are only able to Gift Aid money you have donated personally.
