The 5 Best Ways To Fundraise in 2021 for the Believe and Achieve Trust
A huge thank you to all of our believers who have already fundraised to help us raise as much money as possible. Over the years we have had people do many fundraisers for us such as, cake sales, skydives, dance shows and now it’s your time to shine.
We solely rely on the voluntary donations to fund and support our work. Not only do we need funds we need you to help raise awareness of meningitis. Meningitis is an infection and if not treated quickly enough can be very serious read more here. There are many different causes of meningitis and anyone can get it. This is why we try to raise as much awareness as possible with symptoms cards.
Our Alex’s mission was always to raise as much awareness as possible, which is why we carry on the work we do today. We do this by raising as much awareness whilst having fun fundraising, which allows us to provide support through grants to children and young people to give them the equipment to take part in a sport of their choice. This is life changing to families and young children across the North West.
Let’s take a look at the best 5 ways to fundraise in 2021 to help The Believe and Achieve Trust.
• Three Peak Challenge
A tough activity to take part in but for a worthy cause. You will have the most amazing time and will see some amazing scenery whilst taking part in the challenge. Arrange to do it with a few of your friends so you can share the experience and it will get more awareness and donations too.
There are 4 different events for the three peaks.
The National: The three mountains you will challenge are Snowdon in Wales, Scafell pike in England and Ben Nevis in Scotland. This challenge is often completed within 24 hours.
Yorkshire Peaks: You take on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough it is usually done in this order and completed in under 12 hours.
Welsh Peaks: You will complete Snowdon in the North, Cadair Idris in mid-Wles and Pen-y-Fan in the South this challenge is usually completed in less than 24 hours.
Surrey Peaks: which is the most recent one for 2021. It will take place on 3rd peril 2021 and will be around Box hill, Holmbury hill and Leith hill. It will take around 8 hours for most participants.
You have to book a slot to enter the challenge but will be worth the wait as it will be so rewarding once completed. After lockdown it will be a lovely way to meet with others but also as an individual be good for your mental health.
• Online Talent Contest
What fun you’ll have whilst raising money for Believe and Achieve. Creating a virtual talent contest which will be good for all ages to get involved. Have an entry fee for all contestants, it will be a fun night of a variety of amazing talent.
You can have a judging panel, or everyone can have an online vote. It is a lovely way to get everyone together on a group call whilst showing off your talents and having fun.
• Sponsored 10K run
Aim towards a 10k run whilst training up to the day of the run you can get as many sponsors as you can. After lockdown we all want to keep fit and get back into shape, what better way than training for a 10K and having that end goal for your own personal fitness and for the fundraising side.
Running is one activity a lot of people said helped with their mental health during lockdown as you could get out, clear your mind and just be in the zone. There are many organised 10K running events in England which you can take part in, but you could also create your own to do in your own time. What a rewarding experience when you get to the finish line. The Believe and Achieve trust can provide t-shirts and jumpers for you to wear whilst training and taking part in the run.
• Bake off
This is a great idea for a workplace and who doesn’t love cake! After lockdown it seems baking was a main hobby for everyone so it can be time to unleash your baking skills to your colleagues. Set up one morning with 1 baked cake each all presented next to one another. You can arrange to have one of your colleagues as the judge and they won’t know whose cake is who until they choose the winner of the bake off.
It will be nice to catch up with your colleagues and to raise vital funds for this amazing charity, you could charge to enter or you could sell the cakes to each other also it will raise awareness you can order some awareness cards and post the event on social media.
• Online Gaming Tournament
With online gaming taking off recently it is a great way to connect with friends. We love nothing more than getting active but whilst we still have to abide by lockdown rules a great way to get involved with sports is through gaming. A FIFA tournament online with your friends to raise money for The Believe and Achieve Trust. Charge an entry fee help us to raise awareness by getting them to sign up to our mailing list and donate the money to us.
