A Family Challenge

You could challenge your family to guess the number of sweets in a jar or maybe go for the whole day without saying a single word! Everyone could donate a few pounds towards the challenge (donated to Mental Health Resource!) and the winner wins a small prize!

Amazon Smile

When you shop on Amazon Smile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to Mental Health Resource.

Have a clear-out

That one drawer you keep saying you'll clear out but it's been two is the time! Spring clean your house and make piles of things you no longer need. You'd be amazed at how great you feel afterwards.

You could then hold a jumble sale with the proceeds coming to our charity.

Give something up

Is there something you've been wanting to give up for a long time, but just haven't found a good enough reason to try? Well this could be the perfect time.. whether it's smoking, chocolate, or alcohol, you don't have to wait until New Year to make those resolutions.. simply set up your own fundraising page and see donations rolling in to help you crack those habits!

Grow a crazy beard/ moustache

Why not ask friends and family to donate for this challenge- the longer you can keep your crazy beard or moustache, the more they could donate!

Individual donations

Perhaps you could donate an hours pay or the cost of your train ticket.


Knit the longest scarf and be sponsored by the inch or knit items to sell to your friends and family.

Shave & donate

Need a haircut? Why not ask a loved one (and someone you trust!) to shave your hair! Friends could donate & you could take the plunge live online.

Yes day!

Say yes to everything you are asked to do (within reason!) and be sponsored to do so.

Cake sale

Who doesn’t love cake? Organise a bake sale in your workplace, school, sports club or community group and raise money for mental health.

Challenge events 

From 5km walks to ultra marathons, there are fundraising opportunities for all fitness levels for the whole team to take part in. Perhaps you could hire a rowing machine and row a certain distance as part of a group challenge? Maybe invite other firms along to take on the challenge or rowing an even larger distance over a certain period of time?

Employee Challenge

You could challenge employees to guess the number of sweets in a jar at reception, or maybe go for the whole day without saying a single word! Everyone could donate a few pounds towards the challenge and the winner wins a small prize!

You could also challenge each other to complete a goal- like swimming in the sea or completing a difficult task.

Give something up

Have you been wanting to give something up for a long time, but just haven't found a good enough reason to try? Now could be the perfect time; whether it's smoking, chocolate, or alcohol- why not ask colleagues to sponsor you?

Give up something you love 

Why not give up something you love for a month to get the funds rolling in! We have seen 'Dechox for chocolate', 'Sober October' for alcohol, and 'Movember' for shaving facial hair. You could also choose to ditch the thing that you know your colleagues will be most surprised you are giving up.

Music night

Music really lifts the spirits… If you are a budding musician, have a friend who is great on the guitar, know any local bands, or just fancy a good old fashioned karaoke night then why not hold a fundraising music event? You could contact a local pub or community centre and charge an entry fee for the event. You could also speak to the manager of the venue and ask if they would be willing to donate a proportion on drink sales.

Plank challenge

Do a plank challenge for 30 days and get the sponsorships in by promoting your challenge on social media.  Either build up to a three-minute plank by the end of the month, or do different variations of the plank every day to keep it interesting.

Pub Quiz

Arrange a quiz night at your local pub. Charge each team an entry fee with a prize for the winner. You could also ask the pub manager if they would be willing to donate a proportion of the drink sales!

Sports tournamentsCharity rounders match

Sport is great for our mental health & being part of a team is a great way to build and maintain positive relationships- so why not arrange a mini-sports tournament at your local park?

Each team could donate to enter, with the winning team winning a prize. Ideas could include a cross bar challenge, penalty shootout competition, number of hoops in the net and much more. 

Swear box

Every time a colleague swears, they have to put a £1 in the swear box. You could all decide on a list of what constitutes a swear word first though!


Decide the competition for your sweepstake, for example, guess your race time or the results of a popular event like Eurovision, the Grand National or Wimbledon. Set the price of each entry e.g. £5 and ask your colleagues to make a donation for their entry. They can pick a possible result from a hat or you can give them one at random. Whoever guesses correctly wins a prize!

Virtual walkathon

Perhaps you love walking or running. Why not hold an indoor walkathon or even half-marathon! You could even commit to doing loads of press-ups, sit-ups and squats to raise money for charity. Simply set up an a fundraising page on our website and ask friends to donate; the longer you can walk or work out, the more money they can donate.

Wellbeing breakfast

Why not invite your colleagues to a Wellbeing Breakfast! You could hold it on a Monday morning, making it a great way to ease into the week, catch up with your colleagues and discuss plans for the week ahead. Bring in cereals, croissants, fresh fruit, sandwiches etc. and allow people to make a small donation for each item.
