Over the past year we have been lucky to have the support of many individuals, groups and organisations who have planned fundraising activities to raise money for our charity. We organise events ourselves which we publicise on our website – as much as possible we want our events to be fun and also inspire others to challenge themselves. While many of our planned activities are aimed at adults, we also want to involve children and show them the importance of challenging themselves to do things that are completely out of their comfort zone.
With your support we are able to fund critical research into paediatric brain tumours, giving children and young adults better opportunities for future treatments and potential cures.
If you would like to help us beat brain tumours, please take a look at the different ways you can raise funds:
The best inspiration to get through a challenge is knowing you are helping and giving back to others.
Sign up to do a challenge, arrange an event or get together with friends and think up new ideas for how you can help fundraise for OSCAR’s PBTC.
For fundraising packs or more information please ring our office on 07534 976 575 or email us at email@example.com
Schools, churches, or social and sports clubs have raised huge sums of money for OSCAR’s PBTC in the past year. Some of the ways our fundraisers have raised money this year is:
- Team sport event/league
- Coffee mornings
- Car boot sale
Many of our fundraisers give support through events they’ve organised at work. If you think there’s an opportunity for your company to help OSCAR’s PBTC, please contact us.
We continuously work to expand our corporate fundraising partner base and want to hear from you.
Fundraising at work can be one of the best ways to spread the word about how OSCAR’s PBTC helps advance research into brain tumours. You can reach a lot of people, all at once. Plus, fundraising for such a good cause can really promote enthusiasm and creativity at team-building activities and staff social events.
Don’t forget to:
|Tell your network about it:||Don’t forget to let everyone know, if you’re holding a big event or are planning to raise a large amount of money. You can download publicity materials and our logo from the Media centre, as well as ordering OSCAR’s PBTC t-shirts, collection boxes, sponsorship forms and posters – essential for any event!|
|Share your pictures:||Make sure you have someone taking photographs on the day. Photos are invaluable for gaining press coverage – and donations – after the event. You can also share them with your friends, family and local community by posting them on your fundraising Just Giving site and on our website’s Gallery. To upload your pictures, simply email them, along with information about your event, to firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Make the most of the internet:||Social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter are excellent ways to spread the word about an event. Why not set up an events page? That way you can update all your supporters in one easy message and encourage them to donate, donate, donate! And don’t forget to set up your own Just Giving page on https://www.justgiving.com/oscars-pbtc/|
While the overall aim is to raise lots of money and have fun, please ensure all participants stay safe and operate legally.
