Fundraising events can be a great way of bringing families and friends together to support a cause that’s close to your heart. Fundraising events are also a great way to spread awareness of ME into the wider community.
Our fundraisers never lack imagination and are always coming up with creative ways of raising funds, whilst celebrating their own special talents and abilities. Here are just some of the events that ran last year-
- virtual tea party
- online auction
- pyjama day
- non-uniform day at school
- jumble sale
- coffee morning
- craft fair
And this year, for ME Awareness Week, we’re encouraging you to Go Blue in whatever way you can.
So what could you do?
You won’t be doing this on your own. We’re here to help.
Helen Hyland, our Fundraising Manager, will give you the fundraising and moral support you need to make whatever you decide to do a success. She’ll sort out fundraising supplies – (free T shirts, sponsorship forms, leaflets, identity badges, and letters of introduction) and help you with promotion too. She’ll also try to put you in touch with other fundraisers who’ve been there before and can help with practical advice and support.
Helen can answer any questions and will also guide you through online sponsorship and help you to create your own personal fundraising page onThe ME Association’s special area at JustGiving
