Supporting Our Community

Supporting Us Online

Fundraising is important to Beechwood all year round to raise awareness of what we do. It’s vital to allow us to continue our support services, but it’s also important that our supporters and communities stay safe during Covid-19. Though we cannot run events for our clients and supporters to enjoy, there are still ways you can actively get involved in supporting the Beechwood community.

After all, this year more than ever has shown us all the importance and impact of community and left many of us craving that human connection and be as useful and helpful as we possibly can.

How you can help

In this extraordinary year, we’re experiencing limited contact with friends and family, which leaves some spare time to challenge ourselves while fundraising. You could:

  • Do a sponsored walk – challenge yourself to walk 5km every day
  • Run a solo marathon over the course of a month
  • Host a virtual quiz for friends and family where each member donates to join
  • Organise a virtual auction of your skills, eg. If you’re an artist sell a personalised painting, or a musician could write a song, a baker could donate a cake!

If you would like to get involved with fundraising online, you can still donate via Just Giving.

The donation pages on both sites are straightforward to set up, making fundraising online simple and secure. Make sure you make your page personal and use it to tell your fundraising story and tell everyone about it! Also, remind your sponsors to Gift Aid their donations as it allows us to collect an extra 25% on the donation without costing your supporters extra.

Whichever way you choose to fundraise, it’s a great opportunity to think outside of the box and have some fun with friends and family as well as supporting a great cause.

If you would like to fundraise for us or need more information, please get in touch.
