FUNDRAISING

There are various ways for you to help raise funds towards our mission to spread epilepsy awareness. We have list some suggestions below and you’re also more than welcome to contact me for more details or advice.
START FUNDRAISING

Do you have a head for heights? Why not abseil off the local tallest building or join in a group event to raise funds for your charity?

Why not get fit by organising an aerobics-athon? Get your family and friends involved too; it’s great to fundraise together!

Why not organise an auction? This could be as part of a bigger event or on its own. Your auction could be themed, for example, sports memorabilia or celebrity related. The only limitation is your imagination!

Many local shops/supermarkets let charities come in and pack bags, allowing you to ask their customers for donations. Why not pop in and find out if your local shop will support you on your quest!

Fancy getting on your bike? Why not ask friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor you.

Then why not organise a bingo evening? You don’t necessarily have to play for money; you could ask local businesses for prizes or if you fancy bingo.

Everyone loves cake so why not have a cake sale? Ask everyone to make a cake and then sell them by the slice or cake.

Why not offer to clean cars for a fee, or ask for a donation to your chosen charity. You could charge your friends, and family to wash their cars.

Coffee, tea, biscuits, and cakes make up a great coffee morning! You could do a coffee morning at home or alternatively find a local village or church hall to hold it in. Cake and bric-a-brac stands also work well at these types of events.

Dance all day in a sponsored dance-athon for sponsors or donations.

Why not hold a darts match in your local and ask the pub or a local business to donate a prize for the winner.

Are you up for an egg and spoon challenge? Race your friends and family. No cheating now!

Go crazy with the fashion ideas and create a zany masterpiece to wear for the day. Award prizes for the most outrageous, inventive or colourful costumes.

Why not put your creative talents to the test and organise a fashion show; you could invite the wider community to see your fabulous designs, and don’t forget to charge an entry fee.

Why not challenge your mates to a five-a-side tournament as part of a football fundraiser. Each team pays to play.

Why not dust off your running shoes and challenge yourself to a run? It could be a half marathon, full marathon, or why not sign up for events.

Keen golfer? Why not organise a golf day or competition?

A great one for the office; collect baby photos and then charge people to enter and guess who is who. The one who guesses the most right wins a prize. In the event of a draw add the names to a hat.

Growing your hair? Why not shave it off in return for sponsorship and/or donations?

Reduce, reuse and recycle; the perfect opportunity to hold a jumble sale. A great way to turn your trash into cash!

Enjoy singing? Why not get on the microphone and hold a karaoke evening. Maybe your local pub or club might like to get involved.

Do you enjoy line dancing? Why not organise an evening and charge a fee to those who want to come along?

Get yourselves sponsored on a mass litter pick afternoon and look after the local environment too.

Test those budding Olympians and hold a mini Olympics. Make it fun; you could even make up your own fun events!

Are you talented? Do you know someone who is? Why not put on your own show?

Why not get a local business to donate a big teddy and hold a ‘name the teddy’ competition. You could come up with a list of names where people can buy the name that they think it is called. You can then give the teddy as the prize.

Have fun with an obstacle course and get sponsored too.

Turn your non-uniform/work clothes day into an odd clothes day; mix up those socks and ‘clash for cash’.

Could you jump out of a plane up to 15,000 ft up? If you could then why not jump for us and ask for sponsorship. It’s a great challenge; if you dare!

Could you give up smoking or eating sweets? Maybe you are a choc-o-holic? Why not ask for friends and family to sponsor you for giving up on your vice?

Keen at general knowledge? Why not organise a quiz night?

Hold a race night and have fun seeing if your horse wins. You don’t have to do it for money; use fun money and the person with the most money at the end is the winner of a prize.

Why not hold a raffle and ask for donated prizes.

What’s your spelling like? Why not organise a spelling competition or spell-anthon? Challenge yourself to a certain number of words and why not get sponsored too?

Why not get sponsored per length swum?

Hold a contest to showcase the talents of your friends and family! Organise a collection or charge at the door for entry.

Keen singer? Maybe you are into magic or dancing? Put on a show and charge entry to watch.

Are you a keen walker? Why not plan your route and charge others to come with you or sponsor you.

Celebrate all your talents by putting on a show; Britain’s definitely got talent. Organise your own talent show and invite friends and family too.

Why not dress up wild and whacky in the office or work place? Maybe you want to wear clashing colours or your favourite pyjamas; the choice is yours! Charge everyone a fee to take part.

You can also help through Social Media!
