Fundraise

There are so many things you can do to help raise money for Playskill. If you’d like more information, please email sneha@playskill.org.

Whichever way you chose to raise funds – your efforts across a year could make a lifetime’s difference for local children with physical disability and their families!

Fundraising events

Think about what you’re good at or how you could challenge yourself. You could use this as an opportunity to try something you’ve always wanted to do… just let your imagination run wild!

If you need some help getting started… here are some of our favourite ideas…

  • Well you can’t beat a good old-fashioned cake sale or pub quiz!
  • Or how about hosting a karaoke or games night, or themed dinner party?
  • Organise a benefit gig – music, comedy, or any other kind of performance.
  • Or organise a football match or other sporting event with friends or colleagues.

Or if it’s a challenge you’re after…

  • You could sign-up for a marathon, half-marathon or 10k, or a long-distance cycle ride.
  • Or join one of the many organised challenge events, like Tough Mudder, whist raising funds for Playskill.
