How you can help
Fundraising is a great way to have fun and raise money at the same time.
Fundraisers come from all walks of life, individuals, families, clubs and organisations. Their contributions make a real difference to our work.
You may want to join a local group or organise an event of your own. Decide what you want to do then ask family, friends, colleagues and employers if they want to get involved, you won’t know unless you ask!
You will need to register your fundraising event with us by contacting Judith Read:
Telephone: 01524 516066 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or by completing the ‘fundraising registration form’ and returning to the Charity Office. Fundraising Registration form
Why not create a Justgiving page, make a page and share it online with your friends. Anyone can donate with a credit/debit card from anywhere in the world. In order to do this:
• Go to justgiving.com/mbhc
• Click – raise money, create your page, enter reason and event
• Enter your email address and set up your account or enter your password
• Choose your web address
• You have now successfully set up your page – you will get an email to confirm
• You can now personalise your page with a message and image
• Promote the link to your page, the more people you tell, the more donations you will attract
Some ideas to inspire you:
• Sponsored event (walk, run, cycle, swim, silence, slim)
• Organise an event (coffee morning, car boot sale, dance)
• Organise a stall (at a local event)
• Birthday / anniversary (ask for donations instead of presents)
• No uniform / dress down day (school, work)
• Cash not cards (make a donation instead of sending cards)
• Competitions (quiz, bingo, photo, treasure hunt)
Whatever you decide your enthusiasm will be infectious!
Let your imagination run wild!!!
