We are looking for individuals to help fundraise and spread the word about the great work we do here at Turn to Starboard. Are you up to the challenge?
Think of a great way you want to raise money for Turn to Starboard. Our supporters never fail to surprise us with their inventive ways to raise money, but equally tried and tested ideas are just as effective. Coastal walks, bike rides, runs, sails are all rewarding ways you can raise money.
Getting people together
The best fundraisers are always about bringing people together. Why not arrange a fancy-dress day at work?
Perhaps you are already holding an event and are interested in booking a leadership talk from our founder, Squadron Leader (Rtd) Shaun Pascoe. Shaun is a relaxed and passionate professional speaker with incredible life experiences from serving on numerous tours during his s16 years in the RAF as Officer Commanding (OC) of an Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT).
Create an online fundraising page
Within a few minutes you can create a personal online fundraising page with My Donate. This will allow you to reach a wider audience who can donate in a fast and secure way.
Share on social media
Share your fundraising page on Facebook and Twitter with your friend’s, family and colleagues and post updates about your event or challenge to keep people up-to-date and engaged.
This is a government scheme allowing charities to claim an extra 25p for every £1 sponsored. The money comes direct from the government; we are simply reclaiming tax already paid on donations.
Holding an event which will involve food or alcohol? You need to follow simple guidelines for preparing, handling and cooking food and ensure people drink responsibly. You will need to have adequate first aid cover available for your event – take advice from a voluntary first aid organisation such as St. John Ambulance or the British Red Cross and don’t forget to ensure crowds and traffic are managed properly.
You may require a license if your event is going to incorporate dancing/music, sale of alcohol, selling of goods in a public place, collecting money in a public place, extended hours and provision of food or drink. Please check with your local authority to see if you do require a licence for your activity.
You can do this in a number of ways:
Include details of how you raised the money and include your contact details, so we can say thank you.
Phone or email us and we will send through bank details, so you may transfer your payment.
If you have any paper sponsorship forms, send them back to us with the cash you have raised so we can claim Gift Aid.
Share your story and inspire others to follow in your footsteps by sending us any photos or stories from your event to email@example.com.
