Looking for ideas on how to raise money for WAY? Look no further!
Fun Run/5k/10k/Half Marathon/Marathon/Tough-Mudder/Iron man. Any of these can be done on behalf of WAY and we even have running vests printed with our details that we can give you!
Why not run for more than one charity and can split your sponsorship? Online platforms such as ‘Virgin Money Giving’ will let you set this up automatically. Unfortunately we are not a large enough charity to get our own places in Marathons, but would really appreciate anyone who gets a ballot place to consider fundraising for us whilst running.
Ball/Dance/Concert/Party/Picnic/Golf match. Quite hard to organise, but reaps rewards - we hope to have the resources soon to help people organise large events like these. Quite often these are done through workplaces or large companies, which also help with attendance and donation rates, however they have also been organised successfully by one person with only friends, family or colleagues attending.
Head Shave/Silence/Bean Bath/Bike Ride/Swim - the possibilities are endless!! We have a sponsorship pack in progress to be able to either send out to you, or download from the website.A Stall - You can take a stall at any event you can find; Christmas Fair/Summer Fair/School Fair/Car Boot/Village Hall/Bring & Buy Sale/Carnival/Church Event /Indoor market /Outdoor market and sell whatever you do best, or what you can get your hands on. Ideas for what to sell on a stall include cakes, books, plants (this is a great one if you are good at cultivating seeds or cuttings!), cards, second hand goods, or hold a Tombola/Raffle (please see the Laws & Regulations section regarding the last two). Ideally the stall won't cost you too much - you could always try to haggle with it being for charity - as you will take your costs out of the total amount raised (unless you want to donate those too?) and just give us what is left, plus any direct donations.
Many of our members and their family ask for donations to WAY at their weddings or other celebrations, or in lieu of Christmas or Birthday cards/gifts.
