OSCAR’s October is a chance to raise a huge amount of money for the charity in a short space of time throughout the 31 days of October by either taking part in one of our organised events, setting up your own fun activity or simply joining in by donating.

Read on below for events and ideas


Yorkshire Marathon

Yorkshire Marathon Relay or Individual or Virtual - Sunday 16th October

The first event we ever did and still going strong as a fundraiser for us. Get a team of six together or get in touch to join an existing team, or run as an individual for OSCAR’s.

Or, alternatively, pledge to run all 26 miles virtually before the day and finish before the marathon runners do!

Vantage Toyota Bike Ride

Vantage Toyota York Bike Ride - Wednesday 12th October

The team at Vantage Toyota York will be taking on another massive charity bike ride as they have done for charities in the past, supported by colleagues and local businesses – and this time it is for OSCAR’s. You can sponsor them here.

And if you are inspired by their efforts, why not get Out and About for OSCAR’s on your own sponsored bike ride. Get in touch if you decide to arrange one.


Go Orange for October

Go Orange for October

Your school or workplace could all pledge to dress in orange, our charity colours. If you are stuck for something orange to wear, we can always order you an OSCAR’s t-shirt, or point you in the direction of an orange wig or hi-vis jacket.


Hallowe'en Ideas

Hallowe'en Fundraiser

A creepy cake sale? Guess the number of maggots? Name  the monster? Fancy dress fundraiser?

Choose your idea and let us know!

Maybe this will give you inspiration


Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Savings Time

As the clocks go back and everyone gains an hour, we want you to use that extra time to help us with an experiment.

If everyone we know gets involved, how many £1 donations can OSCAR’s receive in the space of 1 day? £10 worth? 100? 1000?

Time will tell and we can find out on Sunday October 30th…


Want to organise a different OSCAR's October event?

Other OSCAR’s October ideas could include a charity football match, sponsored dog walk, trampolining marathon or even an End of British Summer Time Summer Party – get the pool out, get the BBQ fired up, knock back some pina coladas in your swimsuits and donate, donate, donate. What do you mean it is cold? It doesn’t matter if you are raising money!

These are just a few ideas: you can also choose to buy your own place in any sporting event and raise funds for OSCAR’s PBTC or organise your own – you will receive our support whatever you choose.
