We want to make your fundraising experience as exciting and enjoyable as possible, from a yummy cake sale to a thrilling skydive! Here are our top 10 tips to help you on your way:

 Get in touch 

Let us know what you're planning so we can support you. Your first contact for all sorts of fundraising activity is the office which can be reached via telephone: 0117 414 4831 or email: [email protected]

 Sign up to one of our charity places

 Spread the word  

Getting friends and family involved is a must! Ask for sponsorship (nagging may be required) or even help out at the event itself if possible. If they've got Facebook or Twitter, get them posting on there too.

 Fundraise at work 

Ask if your workplace takes part in 'matched giving' (when an employer matches a certain amount that you have raised). If not, you can ask to organise events such as a cake sale or even ask if they could adopt us as your charity of the year!

Request BRACE fundraising items

There are a number of sites & mobile apps that let you fundraise with your daily online activities: GiveAsYouLive allows you to raise money whilst shopping at certain stores, whilst ChariTable lets you donate £1 when you book a restaurant through their site. We've also partnered up with Savoo, which allows us to raise 1p for every search and use of their discount vouchers - click here for for our Savoo link page.
