SOS – Stand Out Step up – Our 2021 Challenge

Can you walk, run, swim, cycle, hop, skip or jump 15 miles for Friends and Families to celebrate the arrival of 2021. 

2020 saw us achieve our 15th birthday, unfortunately our plans for a celebration party have been put on hold due to Covid-19 but we will celebrate with you soon! 

Stay active, keep fit and healthy and help us to raise vital funds by getting sponsorship.  You can complete our SOS Challenge on your own or with family or friends, or use it as an opportunity to stay virtually connected with those you care about if distance and/or Covid-19 prevent you from being together.  You can complete your 15 miles in one day or do it over a number of days or weeks.  You can do it as a family or group and all contribute to the miles.

Top Tips

  • Use WhatsApp, Houseparty, Zoom, Skype or a Game Console to do your group SOS Challenge
  • Do your challenge at home if you are shielding or vulnerable – use your stairs or your garden
  • Use a Fitbit, watch or download an App on your phone to keep track of your miles

Set up your fundraising page here and share your SOS Challenge with everyone you know.

Give in Celebration Event

Give in Celebration

Getting married? Celebrating a birth, birthday or anniversary?  Mark a special occasion by raising money to help fund vital services for children living with disabilities. 

Instead of buying you a birthday, wedding or Christmas present for example you can ask your friends and family to make a donation to Friends and Families. You will be helping families of a disabled child get the hope and practical help they need, every step of the way.

Organise your own event…

Do you fancy holding your own fundraising event for Friends and Families?  Perhaps you can get a group of friends together and organise a coffee morning, pamper evening or even a quiz night down your local pub – whatever your idea we would love to hear from you and give you moral support and help promote your event.

Get in touch with Diane at diane@friendsandfamilies.org.uk with your idea and we will email you your fundraising pack to get started!

Collection boxes

Collection boxes

If you own a pub, shop, restaurant, shop would you like one of our collection boxes? 

Each collection box raises on average £60 a year just from loose change – so its great way to raise money for the charity. 

If you would like one email diane@friendsandfamilies.org.uk or call 01752 710115

Facebook Fundraising

Not sure what you want for your birthday or want to commemorate an anniversary, retirement or wedding – whatever you are celebrating then why not set up a fundraising page on Facebook and ask for donations instead of presents for Friends and Families?  Your donation will enable us to provide more activities for disabled children to enjoy.
