There are currently no Challenge Events
If your favourite event is not listed here, we encourage you to get your own place in a race and run for EWB-UK. Whether a serious athlete or Sunday jogger, you’ll be supported all the way by the Fundraising Team, with promotion, help with fundraising ideas, and we'll even try to come cheer you on!
Fundraising can be a fun and effective way to help support our organisation, and we'd love for you to get stuck in and organise your own events to also raise funds for our movement. From bake sales to trekking to leaping out of a plane, fundraising events can be as active or as relaxed as you like!
If you want to organise a sponsored activity then follow these simple steps:
1. Organise the event itself!.
3. Tell us about it! We can publicise your donations page, your event and tell all our members about your efforts!
4. Get your friends, family and everyone else to sponsor you through your Virgin Money Giving page
Your local university branch or Professional Network group may also be able to want to go to your event, spread the word about it, or even help with the event organisation itself so please get in touch with them! You can also use Facebook to fundraise for your event, here are some tips from JustGiving on how to do so. If you are organising a big fundraising event, you may even be able to fundraise through texts- get in touch with us to find out more... and please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions, ideas, feedback- the Fundraising Team will support you in any way we can!
Branch Fundraising Events
Why not use an ice-breaking event as the chance to raise some funds for your branches? For example, organise a cheese and wine evening or a pub quiz! These are great ways to get to know your new members and keep them involved, as well as raising funds.
To help branches fundraise, we have created a guide to outline the methods of fundraising both for your branch and for EWB-UK. If you want to learn more, download it here. If you want even more tips, you know who to get in touch with...!
