Fundraising for BIADS – ways you can help

Every year it costs over £200,000 for BIADS and our dedicated Dementia Support Centre to run and stay open to help people with dementia and their carers live well. Over £120,00 of these costs have to be raised via fundraising efforts and donations. There are so many ways you can fundraise on behalf of BIADS, including:

Take part in Fundraising Challenges & Events – there are lots of opportunities to take part ranging from events we organise ourselves including an annual sponsored walk every July to national and regional sporting challenges and events please Contact us for more details and suggestions. Please note we have BIADS’ branded t-shirts and running vests available to help you ‘look the part’ and will provide sponsorship forms

Organise your own Fundraising Challenges & Events  – rather than take part in a pre-organised event or challenge you may prefer to organise your own. Well we are here to help as much or as little as you like so please get in touch

Making BIADS your ‘Charity of the Year’ – are you part of a local community group, club or society which holds fundraising events? If so why not choose BIADS as your Charity of the Year? Again we will offer help and support to help maximise the monies raised

Just Giving – from setting-up a Just Giving Page, creating a text appeal, to promoting and sharing via social media, we can support your Just Giving campaign to maximise fundraising efforts. Take a look at our Just Giving page and see what our fundraisers are currently up to

Collection boxes – whether to be used at fundraising events, or placed in your reception area at work, BIADS can provide you with collection boxes. We can also arrange delivery and collection as required, and present you with a ‘thank you’ certificate to display stating the amount of monies raised

Donations of goods – let’s face it we all have too much ‘stuff’ these days, so why not have a clear out and donate your unwanted items to be sold in our Royston-based charity shop. Please note we cannot accept electrical items.  Alternatively do you have something that could be offered as a raffle prize?

Corporate Fundraising – there are so many ways organisations can work with BIADS for mutual benefit.  Click here for details

These are just a selection of the ways you can help to raise much needed monies for BIADS. Whatever you decide to do, your efforts are greatly appreciated by everyone here at BIADS and those we provide support for. But remember please let us know about your fundraising plans so we can help promote / provide our logo where required and ensure your efforts comply with the new Code of Fundraising Practice. As a thank you for your fundraising efforts you will receive a shiny certificate.

We really look forward to hearing from you. You can contact us or email direct: emma@biads.org.uk

Thank you!
