Fundraising for BIRD
Recently BIRD has had many of you fundraising for us including 10km open water swim, card making and donations in lieu of wedding gifts!
If you would like to fundraise for us, please let us know what you are doing so we can help if you wish.
Whatever you decide to do, your fundraising efforts will help us to continue our research and education programmes here at BIRD.
Here are some other ideas of how you could help us to raise money;
Organise just one night or a whole series of quizzes in your local pub or social club. You can charge entry for each team and get prizes donated. Many pubs or social clubs will be happy to support you as the event will bring them extra customers.
Feeling adventurous? You could take on the challenge of a lifetime – from abseiling down a building to running a marathon – and you can ask people to sponsor you for your efforts.
If you are part of a sports club, golf club or fitness centre, you could organise a charity football match, golf day or fancy dress sports challenge. Maybe your club has one already and you could nominate the Bath institute for Rheumatic Diseases to be the benefiting charity?
Holding an auction is a fun way to sell items for a good cause.
Invite friends over for the evening and sell tea-inspired drinks such as Long Island iced tea and G&T!
Then you could always do a more traditional raffle, cake sale, table top sale or simply ask for one of our collection tins.
If you can think of any other great ideas then please let us know!
