We wouldn't be able to continue providing our services without our incredible supporters who help us fundraise year on year.
There are many ways you can get involved. We are always keen to hear your ideas, so we can find new and exciting ways of raising funds, as well as awareness of domestic abuse within the community. Every event we do provides another opportunity for us to reach out to those who may need our help.
Every £ makes a difference and helps the families we support survive and thrive. Read on for some of our suggestions - if you'd like to know more, please complete the form below to receive our Fundraiser's pack!
Host a Fundraiser
If you would like to host an event or you already have an idea of how you would like to fundraise for us, please fill in the form below and request our Fundraising Pack. We have plenty of ideas for you - whether you are on your own or in a team, as well as information on how we can support you to make the most impact.
Think bake sales, pamper evenings, pub quizzes, curry nights, etc. or larger events like a Charity Ball or sponsored team challenges. There is no limit to your imagination; have fun with your friends/family and see how much you can raise!
If you would like to place a donation station at your workplace counter please let us know and we will bring you some donation pots: Email Julie from our Finance Team
Schools and youth groups
Fundraising in schools is fun and a great way to start conversations with children and young people about healthy/unhealthy relationships and how to keep themselves safe.
With 1 in 5 children experiencing domestic abuse, schools and youth groups have a real opportunity to raise awareness of an important issue, whilst raising funds in fun ways - Mufti days, White Ribbon sales, cake sales (which child doesn't love cake?!) are all ways to help us raise awareness and raise funds to help sustain our Schools Prevention workshop programme.
If you are involved with a local Scouts, Brownies, Women's group, Rotary or community group and would like us to come along and tell you more about our work and how you can help, please get in touch with Email Eleanor our Schools Prevention Worker
Runs, Treks and Challenges
There’s nothing more motivating than gearing up for a personal challenge, and we have plenty to choose from if you need ideas. If you want to take part in a local event there are lots to choose from, whether you are an individual seeking a new personal challenge or a group of friends/Corporate looking for a team-building event.
If you want to climb a mountain, trek around the UK or do something even more adventurous, we will support you with your fundraising efforts. We have partnered up with www.www.ultrachallenge.com who have a whole host of sponsorship events ready and waiting for you! We know you will have thought long and hard before committing to such a challenge, so we don't ask for huge amounts of fundraising either - we know you will do your best!
We've also teamed up with Virtual Racing UK - sign up to do their virtual annual 1000km or 1000 mile challenge (walk, swim, cycle) - 20% of your entry is donated to the Charity.
You can win this medal if you enter into this year's Virtual Racing UK Frightful 5K . Run at your own pace, keep your running focussed! This is the perfect way for young and old to get involved.
This medal is available to earn throughout the month of October - it can be a 5K run, walk, swim or cycle - simply enter, set your GPS to track your progress and away you go! Keep us posted on your progress via social media and we will give you a boost !
5K is the perfect distance to keep you motivated throughout the cooler months, so wear your medal with pride and smugness in the knowledge you are donating to a great cause too.
It only costs £12 to enter (much cheaper than some of the bigger fitness events and how cool are these medals??) and £2 will be donated to The Dash Charity, then your medal will be posted out to you.
