Tommy's - Most asked questions
Once I have my charity place with Tommy’s, is my place fully secured?
No, there is one more form you'll need to fill out. From October 2023 onwards, the LLHM team will send you a link to their Event Registration form. This form contains information such as, estimated finish time, emergency contact information, as well as the important event T's and C's which you will need to read and sign. If you're ever unsure whether you've done this form or not, pop us an email to check, as it needs to be done in order for you to take part on event day.
How do I get my Tommy’s running top?
Once you’ve raised your first £50, you’ll automatically receive a code to order a free Tommy’s running top and a fundraising pack. If you’ve raised over £50 and have not received your code, please let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.

I’m struggling with my fundraising, what can I do?
First and foremost, we're here to help. Feel free to pop us an email to email@example.com and we'd be happy to help.
Fundraising isn't easy, but don't get disheartened. Our first tip is always to break down the total amount into smaller chunks. For example, 10 lots of £35 seems much more managable. What could you do to raise £35? (Office sweepstake, bake sale, ask your close friends and family, ask your local pub to put a collection tin out) We have lots more ideas and support on the resources tab.
I’m running with others, how do we set up a team page and fundraise together?
You can set up a team fundraising page in 2 ways, which are best explained here. We usually recommend just having one page and changing the name so it reflects the whole team. However, you can also set up individual pages and link to a team page too.
Please could you set your target to £350 x 'the number of team members' and then once you have the page up and running please send us a link and the names of all the team members. This way we can link the page and donations to you all.

I’ve raised money offline, how do I pay it in and add it to my JustGiving page?
The easiest thing for you to do is to pay the money into your bank. Then login to your fundraising page on this site and simply donate the amount straight to your page.
JustGiving has set my fundraising target to £600, is this right?
We automatically set each Tommy's page for the LLHM 2023 with a target of £600 - this is because a higher target on a page statistically increases the chances of you meeting your £350 minimum pledge.
We can confirm your minimum pledge is still £350. If you'd like to change your target back to £350 on your JustGiving page, you can 'edit' your page and your target by following the steps here: https://help.justgiving.com/hc/en-us/articles/200669521-Editing-your-Fundraising-Page.
How do I get a fundraising pack?
Once you’ve raised your first £50, we’ll send you a code to order your free fundraising pack and a Tommy’s running top. If you’ve raised more than £50 and haven’t received your code, please let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
What fundraising materials can I get?
I was successful in the ballot, how do I run for Tommy’s?
It’s great to hear you’ve been successful and would like to run for Tommy’s. Please fill in our Own Place Form here to join Team Tommy’s. As you have your own place, there is no minimum fundraising pledge, just raise as much as you can and enjoy being a part of the team.
I was unsuccessful in the ballot, how can I get a place with Tommy’s?
We’re sorry you were unsuccessful in the ballot. You can get a place in the LLHM 2023 with Team Tommy’s, by filling in our ‘I want a Team Tommy’s place’ Form here. You will need to commit to a £350 fundraising pledge to cover the cost of your place and to support our life-saving research. We can’t wait to welcome you to the team.
What is the difference between a ballot place and a charity place?
If you enter the LLHM ballot and are successful, then once you have paid for your place it is yours and you do not need to fundraise for a charity if you don’t want to. Whereas, if you get a charity place this means that the charity has bought your place in the event and asks that you commit to a minimum fundraising pledge to cover the cost of your place and support the charity’s work.
