Run the Hayling Billy 5 for Havant and East Hants Mind.

Thank you for thinking of running for us!

The Hayling Billy 5 takes place in June each year it is fun race – open for all abilities with beautiful seaside views and usually lovely weather, and is organised by Victory running club.

Could you run and raise funds for Havant and East Hants Mind?  We are only a small charity seeing about 1000 local people each year. We are therefore not able to purchase any places “en bloc” at the event so we are hoping that fundraiser will pay the entry fee themselves. (£18 which goes to the Victory AC charity of the year).

There is no pressure to fund raise for us. We feel it’s incredibly important to raise the profile of the work we do – any funds you raise are of course a bonus. As you have already paid to enter the run and will be running for us – that’s already a great gesture but we hope some people will be inspired by your commitment and many give some pennies too!

We will provide you with a Havant and East Hampshire Mind T-Shirt which will help raise awareness of our charity on your run – and afterwards as well, we hope.

How to raise funds for Havant and East Hants Mind

  1. Tell us you intend to fund raise for us by sending an email to [email protected] or a message on Facebook. We will send you an information email with further information to help.
  2. The best way is to set up an online giving page because this cuts down on the paperwork and the money goes directly into our account from the sponsor so you don’t have to collect it after the event. It also makes it easier for us to claim the extra 25% extra Gift Aid from the government.
  3. We use two main websites which you can sign up to; then you can promote your run and our cause on social media, Facebook, Twitter and email to everyone you know. Once you sign up you need to remember to nominate Havant and East Hants Mind as your charity. (If you nominate just “Mind” we will not get the money). or you can use

If you need paper fundraising forms to collect cash them please email [email protected] and we will send you some electronic copies to print off.

You can find all the information about the Hayling Billy 5 run itself and how to enter via the Victory AC website
