We’ve come up with a few suggestions of how you could raise money for CDF through sponsorship and enjoy yourself at the same time! If you have any other fantastic fundraising ideas please let us know. You can use Just Giving to collect sponsorship http://www.justgiving.com/CyclistsDefenceFund or donate to us via PayPal.

You can now organise events and raise money using a JustGiving page, as we have now registered as a charity!
All you need to do is to go to JustGiving website www.justgiving.com search Cyclists Defence Fund and you can then set up your own personal sponsorship page which you can send out to all your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you and help you to raise money on our behalf!
CDF was shocked to learn of the death of Mark, who was killed when he was hit by a car driven by a 59-year-old man from Christchurch, on May 28th and would like to express our condolences to Marks’s friends and family.
The driver of the car has been arrested and released on bail on suspicion of causing death by careless driving. CTC's Stop SMIDSY campaign has been tracking cases like this to document how effective the criminal justice system is when it comes to the deaths of cyclists.
