Whether on your own or with a group of friends, fundraising is a great way to help us reach out to people in need. Below are some of the ways you can get involved.

Organise an event


From a family fun day to a black tie dinner – there are lots of ways to get people together to help us reach out to people in distress. Call us for copy of our fundraising pack.

Form a fundraising group


Fundraising groups can be made up of friends, colleagues, family members – or just a group of like-minded people who want to help us. The more the merrier!


Working as part of a team isn’t just a way of getting help with organising events – it’s also a great way to socialise and share ideas. If you’d like to work with others to put on fundraising events in your local area, putting together a fundraising group could be for you. 

Collecting tins and moneyboxes


If you're the owner of a shop, why not keep a collection tin on the counter? Not only will the money help people currently suffering with mental health issues but it's also a great way of raising awareness in your local community.


Email us at to request your free collection tin.


Street collections


Holding a street collection can be a great way to raise money, and fantastic for raising awareness.

Before starting, please give us a call on 01702 601123 to register your interest. We can then provide you with a letter of authority and collecting tins and stickers, to help you fundraise legally and safely.


We will also need to call your local council for advice and to apply for a collection licence. Please note that children and young people under 16 must not approach strangers for money – and we don't allow our supporters to knock door-to-door.

Take on a challenge


From marathons and mud runs, to triathlons and treks, we've got loads of events you can take on. Challenge yourself whilst raising money for us to grant more wishes.
