Organise a social event to raise money.
How often do you find yourself saying to people “We must meet up”?
Raising money could provide the excuse you need to pull out that diary. One of our most successful events was “A Night at the Races” how about scrabble challenge, card playing night, snakes & ladders or murder mystery. Even try a sponsored party…Coffee morning… BBQ… or cheese & wine night…

We would love you & friends to help please, if you would just ask them to hold a Trust PA Charity Concert, Golf day, Gym challenge or similar event? With an event there are lost of ways to raise funds via; entrance fees, bucket collection, charge for refreshments/drinks or hold a raffle… We are always willing to come along, share info and support whereever possible.
We make a modest profit on ticket sales. You can applaud the fundraising feats of the past year, learn more about how the road to repair spinal cord injury is getting shorter.

Please ask your employer if they will match your sponsorship efforts £ for £. Do they operate a charity scheme which might be able to help Trust PA. An example is: Nominating Trust PA as your company charity of the year for example or donating the profits from a company event, sports day or other event, please ask them...
Other people prefer to do something bizarre and get sponsored like having a bath in beans, shave your head, build a bike for ten, hold a spoon and egg race, hold a duck (plastic) river race, mad hatters tea party, custard pie fight, tug of war, build a mile trail of pennies or any other mad antic all for fun and finance…

Hold a sponsored car wash, lawn cutting, window cleaning – ask the scouts or the fire service, army or navy to help The options are endless…
Auction something very original or quirky!
like - stand in a bowl of porridge for 12hrs, sleep in the bath for a week, have a water polo competition, fill your boots with baked beans or live in a tree for a month to help Trust PA. The papers/press/me
Example: Speak to a local restaurant about holding a charity meal night with friends. Negotiate special rates & food options, set your ticket price (plus charity donation margin) then invite everyone you know - whether you think they may be interested or not, the important point is - don't decide for them, just invite them. You can enhance the money raise by holding a raffle, fancy hat competition or other ideas too.
