Thanks to the generosity of local people  and local groups, public donations have helped fund our weekly peer support groups, have paid for our Information Officer to provide advice, support and a point of contact for people in need of help and also funded our 'Here For You' phone line, which provides weekly phone support to people who are lonely, isolated and unable to engage in group activities.

Community fundraising is vital to sustainable service delivery and people are endlessly creative in how they go about getting donations. there have been bake offs, pub crawls, dance marathons, raffles - you name it, people have done all sorts.

If you would like to 'do it yourself' then why not download our fundraising pack, which has further info and a few ideas to get you started or see below just a few of the things people got up to last year.

Bake Off - everyone loves a Bake Sale and maybe you can appoint a Star Baker

Dress Up/Down at work - easy and fun to do, just pick a theme 

Raffles and Tombolas - easy to organise and fun to do

Social Event - turn your social event into a fundraiser 

Quiz Night - organise a quiz night  - or day - for fun competition at work or home   Spring Clean Sale - sell unwanted items online or at a car boot

These are a just a few ideas - the possibilities are endless!
