Fundraise for us

Fundraising to bring friends together.

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.

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.

A 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!

A 5 a-side football tournamentCharity rounders match

Sport is great for our mental health - so why not arrange a 5 a side football tournament at your local park? Each team could donate to enter, with the winning team winning a prize. You could also do a cross bar challenge and penalty shootout competition between matches and charge people £1 to enter. If you are not a football fan, then why not use another sport such as basketball or cricket. Playing sport and being part of a team is a great way to build and maintain positive relationships.

A 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.
