Have you got a great idea for a fundraising event that could support us to help more people? Then we would love to hear from you!

We are always very keen to support groups or individuals who would like to organise any type of event. If you would like to get involved but you’re not sure what event is right for you, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to work with you to come up with an idea that’s just right.

Step 1: Decide on your event

Have a think about what kind of event you fancy doing – are you organising it by yourself or as part of a group? Ask friends and family for ideas and think about what you would like to take part in.

Step 2: Tell us about it

We are here to support you to make your event a huge success! Let us know what your plans are and how we might be able to help.

Step 3: Get hold of some useful materials

Check out our resources for fundraisers page where you will find plenty of helpful downloads to get you started and make sure you’re on track for your event, including a bake sale pack. If you have any questions, or need something that isn’t there, get in touch and let us know.

Step 4: Work with us to tell others about it

We can help spread the word about your event with our virtual megaphone across our website, social media and press. Let us know all the details and our fundraising and marketing team will assist you to raise awareness and hopefully as much money as possible.

If you’d like to host your fundraising online set up a fundraising page with JustGiving and your donations will be processed and passed on to us directly. They will even claim the gift aid on our behalf, where the donor is eligible.

Please don’t hesitate to contact our fundraising team on 01225 824103 or via fundraising@designability.org.uk if you’d like any images or content for your page, or if you need help setting it up.
