Record numbers of people are now turning to NASS for support, and we hope to be here for everyone. Our helpline and advice service are only possible thanks to donations from people like you.

    If you would like a guaranteed charity entry place with #TeamNASS we ask that you make a donation of £25 to secure your place, and then pledge to raise £350 to support our work. If you have your own place you can join #TeamNASS for free and you can set your own fundraising target.
    Whilst fundraising in aid of NASS I will behave appropriately and respectfully. I will pay all funds raised to NASS no later than 1 month after the event. Due to Covid-19, I agree to respect and strictly follow government guidelines around outdoor exercise whilst walking and maintain social distancing measures to ensure the safety of all people.
