Fundraising

Fundraise for us

People do amazing things to raise funds for Whoopsadaisy. Unlike many other charities we don’t have our own large fundraising team, so we rely on the time and energy of volunteers and our local community. All our resources go towards doing what we do best – supporting disabled children and their families.

There are many ways you can raise funds for us. If you’re struggling for ideas fear not our brilliant team have a few ideas that may help:

  • Everyone loves cake! Hold your own ‘bake off’ or sell home-made cakes at work
  • Get your friends and colleagues along for a charity pub quiz
  • If you have a birthday, wedding or anniversary coming up why not suggest donations to Whoopsadaisy instead of presents?
  • Simply fill a jar with spare change – every penny counts.

Bag a Whoopsadaisy bear

Donate to receive your hand-made Whoopsadaisy bear – they make great gifts for children and adults too. Bears can be made to order in a fabric of your choice, or choose from our latest bear pack. Contact trustee, volunteer, and chief bear-maker, Helen Palmer. So far, her brilliant bears have raised over £10,000.

 

Challenge yourself

There are a myriad of opportunities to challenge yourself and raise funds for Whoopsadiasy. You could do something exciting like skydive, achieve your dream by trekking in exotic parts of the globe, or push yourself to new fitness levels by taking part in a marathon or cycling challenge.
