Fundraising

There are so many ways to fundraise:

EVENTS

Sponsored events are very popular – walking, cycling, running, swimming, even bungee jumps or parachute jumps for the more adventurous!

Some more popular ideas are:

  • Coffee mornings and Afternoon teas
  • Wine and cheese nights
  • Opening up your garden and charging entry
  • Quiz nights
  • Treasure hunts

If your activity is sponsored don’t forget to complete  a sponsor form which gives each sponsor’s title (ie Mr/Mrs etc), first name, surname, full home address, post code, Gift Aid declaration (ie to tick a box which confirms the charity can claim gift aid on their behalf) and finally the amount of the donation.

This allows us to claim back the Gift Aid and means we  can claim back an extra 25% back from the government on every donation without it costing you a penny more.

Above all enjoy and have fun!

Some important things to think about:

Keep yourself safe – before undertaking any activity that is physically demanding, we highly recommend that you find out the level of fitness required and, if necessary, check with your GP.

Please do not undertake door to door collections. People do not like strangers knocking on their doors asking for money and you need a licence from your local authority if you intend doing any street collections.


"Often families don't have the financial capability to access services. We need to rethink how we delivery neuro-rehab services to children and young people"
Vicki Anderson; Australia
"Pediatric neuro-rehabilitation cannot be delivered in isolation. The needs of the child have to be looked at both holistically and within the context of the family unit. Parents need to be empowered to be parents in post-acute pediatric neuro-rehabilitation following brain injury"
The Children's Trust; United Kingdom
"Different 'experts' involved in pediatric neuro-rehabilitation come from different organisational cultures which causes conflict and has a negative effect on the outcomes for the child."
Barbara O'Connell; Ireland
"Too often children and young people with ABI are discharged from hospital without specialist brain support that they and their families need to overcome lifelong challenges"
Andrew Ross; former Chief Executive of the Children's Trust
"We need to harness the power of brain plasticity for treating children and young people with brain injury. Stressful experiences alter brain development of a child, especially at the key ages of 0-3 and at ages 10-16"
Professor Bryan Kolb; Canada
"Poor parenting styles affects children's behavior; increased their learning disability; and had a negative impact on emotions; anxiety; anger management post brain injury"
Andrea Palacio-Navarro; Spain
"Brain development is complex and prolonged. Brain plasticity is influenced by a range of factors. Plasticity provides a base for neuro-rehab therapies and treatment"
Professor Bryan Kolb; Canada
"When someone has a brain injury, early access to local, specialist rehabilitation is crucial to ensure the maximum recovery and make significant savings to the state in health costs"
Headway; United Kingdom
"When different organisations assess different aspects of a child's neuro-rehabilitation needs, everyone looks at things from a different perspective and highlight needs and conflicting priorities"
Cathy Jonson; Rehab without Walls; United Kingdom.
"Children and young people have poor social competence post brain injury due to reduced cognition, executive functions, and emotional control. As a result they are twice as likely to have mental health issues in the future"
James Tonks; University of London

OUR MISSION: To work to remove (health) inequalities for children & young people affected by acquired brain injury; and provide effective support to their families that makes a real difference.
