Host an event
Host your own event
There are tonnes of ways you can raise money that feels right for you and your friends or colleagues. Events, however big or small, don’t only raise us vital funds either, they increase awareness of what we do and normalise mental health issues. This in turn helps to reduce stigma for those struggling.
We can make sure you have a Changes banner and other promotional materials as well as a donation box so that people know what you’re raising money for.
Below are some ideas of what people have done in the past but you may have your own ideas…
Host a cake sale or create your own mini bake-off competition. Particularly good for boosting morale in the workplace, munching on cake together can be a great occasion to check in with people and promote conversation.
Host a mini tournament
Previously people have raised money by hosting 5-aside football tournaments, golf tournaments, chess tournaments and many more. These are great ways to appeal to people’s competitive sides and we can promote them among our networks too.
Host something unique to you
You might have an idea for a workshop you’d like to offer people (like a “learn macrame workshop”) or an idea for an event that will appeal to your unique clientele (like Workout Bristol’s “aerobathon”), they are all great opportunities to spread awareness, raise cash and we love them all!
