Fundraising for The EPT

Why The EPT needs your support

We are the leading charity that focuses on ectopic pregnancy to provide such extensive general information and peer support for anyone that has experienced the condition

There is a crucial need for The EPT. When someone has a suspected ectopic pregnancy or is diagnosed with the condition, they and their partners have many questions and worries. We are here to provide those affected with somewhere to go, providing information and support. People gain comfort from being among others who had had a similar experience and many healthcare professionals signpost families to our services so that we can be there in the days, weeks, and even months ahead.

I chose this charity due to the kindness and support that I received after my surgery. They listened and encouraged me alongside my family and friends. They allowed me to express my thoughts and encouraged me to reach out and be open with my situation. Although devastating, the experience has proven to me that I have so much unending support and EPT have been an invaluable part of that.

How you can make a difference

Money raised by our fundraisers means that we provide our services free of charge to anyone who turns to us in their time of need. Without our fundraisers, we simply would not exist.

This website, our information leaflets, and our range of support routes would not be here supporting people in their darkest days. We receive no government or corporate funding. As a tiny, niche charity, we rely on our fundraisers to keep us going.

We have created a wellness guide to help you through your fundraising journey. We also offer a complimentary vest or t shirt to those who sign up to fundraise for us.  You can hand out our fundraising leaflets to your supporters.  In addition, many of our fundraisers find using our branded items can be a great way to start conversations, raise awareness and generate interest in their fundraising. We have combined these popular items into a new fitness bundle! Please free to take a look at our online shop

I would like to raise money to help this charity… I had never really heard of an ectopic pregnancy until it happened to me. I was and still am devastated. If I could receive some information about the charity and what fundraising I can do to support others and raise awareness it would be most appreciated.

Celebrations and remembering on important dates

Facebook Birthday Fundraisers make donating on birthdays easy.

For any important dates that are special to you, you can donate instead of distributing favours and we have thoughtful thank you notes that can be added to table settings.

How to create a Facebook fundraiser for The EPT

Hold an EPTea Party

Many people tell us how a cup of tea and piece of cake with a friend or family member can provide some much-needed comfort during their recovery.

Combine a cuppa with friends and raising awareness and funds with holding an #EPTea Party.

More fundraising inspiration!

As well as The EPT’s fundraising activities, we are also able to offer flexibility – you can be creative and find or organise an activity that appeals to you. Set a personal goal with a focus; many consider and value participation in a fundraising activity as part of their personal recovery journey. 

Popular activities include local walks, runs, cycles, swims and even skydives. You can develop an activity that is meaningful to you in your area or see what other fundraisers have done for inspiration.

… And if you don’t have an idea as yet, don’t worry, just get in touch and we can help with tonnes of inspiration. 

Fundraising inspiration
I chose to fundraise for this charity due to the kindness and support that I received after my surgery in November. They listened, laughed and encouraged me alongside my family and friends, they allowed me to express my thoughts and encouraged me to reach out and be open with my situation. Although devastating, the experience has proven to me that I have so much unending support and The EPT have been an invaluable part of that
