If you decide to organise your own fundraising or sponsored event at your home, school, church, or place of work, please contact us for posters, leaflets, and branded materials. We’ll be more than happy to help and could even support you to promote the event via our website and social media platforms.
If you want to make use of our on line sponsorship, Just Giving pages or our Events Bright event management platform, we can chat about that too.
We would love to hear from you, so please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org marking your email Events.
A bit of inspiration…
Put on an event
Put on an event such as a quiz or a fashion show and sell tickets. Not only is it a great way to raise money, it’s also good fun.
Afternoon teas/coffee mornings
Why not get baking and have people round for a coffee morning or afternoon tea? You can ask people for a small donation or hold a raffle and sell tickets.
Car boot sales
Set up a table for YMCA Bedfordshire at a car boot sale and sell your unwanted bric-a-brac.
You could hold an auction dinner. Ask individuals and local businesses for items that money can’t usually buy. Individuals could offer an hour’s gardening, an evening’s babysitting or a week in their holiday home. Local businesses could offer items like a studio portrait, a hamper or a haircut.
The possibilities are endless. Choose an event and collect sponsorship. You could run, swim, dance, sleep, sing, eat or be silent.
If you have planned a great event, don’t forget to contact your local press and shout about it via social media. The more people who know about your efforts, the more money and awareness you’re likely to raise.
The best way to manage your fundraising is to set up a personal fundraising page via Just Giving which is a simple way to collect your donations and sponsorship. Before creating your page, please let our fundraiser Paul know at email@example.com or call us on 01234 307040 so we can track your fundraising.
