Do Something for the Trust
Be creative and get inspired. The only limit to what you can do is your imagination!
It may be about pushing your physical or mental limits or doing something fun with friends, but what you do could help define a young person’s future. Could anything be more satisfying than that?
Whatever you do our funky fundraising team can help you to make your efforts really worthwhile.

Sign up for an event
We get places in many national and local events, and we also organise our own, including the Spinnaker Tower Abseil and Carsington Water Walk. Find out what’s coming up and how can you get involved?
If you want to sign up for an event that isn’t on our list but still raise money for us, that’s OK too. Our fundraising team will be able to give you some guidance.
Think outside the fundraising box
People are constantly being asked for sponsorship so what would make you part with your cash? Capture people’s imaginations with a really innovative idea, or something they can feel part of themselves, and you’re onto a winner.
Things like a jargon swearbox, getting a group of you to all give up something you love for a week and having a blindfold tea or dinner party where guests have to guess what they’re being served are fun and collecting money is just part of it.
Make your hobby a fundraiser
Mad about baking? Love making arts and crafts? Run a kids’ sports team?
Whatever your talents, why not put them to really valuable use by selling your creations or organising a tournament with all proceeds to the Trust?
Oldies are still goodies
Some fundraising activities have been around forever, but there’s a reason for that. They work.
Raffles, auctions, quiz nights, collection tins, ‘Guess the…’ and ‘Who’s the baby’ type competitions, all these sorts of things never lose their fundraising appeal.
The gift of giving
Got a birthday, wedding or another significant life event coming up where people would typically buy you a present?
Why not ask for donations to the Trust instead?
