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?
We help those retired from the forces and those still serving to get perspective on past events and focus on a successful future, but we can’t do it alone. We need the support of generous, passionate and dedicated supporters like you!
By fundraising for Turn to Starboard you will be joining a community of volunteers doing incredible things in support of our serving and retired Armed Forces personnel, and their families, who have been affected by military operations.
There are loads of other ways you can get involved, here are a few of our ideas:
Coastal walks, bike rides, runs, swims, quit a habit, they’re all simple and rewarding ways you can raise money for our work with those who have been affected by military operations.
For those with an adventurous streak, why not look at something a little more daring?
World record-breaking attempt
Perhaps you are looking for inspiration and would like to do something unusual to show your support for our work with serving and retired Service personnel and their families.
The more creative you can get the more publicity you’re likely to receive for your fundraiser, so this could be a easy, fun way of drumming up support.
Fundraise at work
Why not speak to your employer about holding a fancy dress/military themed day or hold a skills auction and sell tickets to co-workers and customers?
For those more conservative bosses, bake sales, raffles or collecting loose change can also be a great way to fundraise in the workplace.
Getting people together
The best fundraisers are always about bringing people together. Why not host a community coffee morning, bake sale or table-top sale? You could ask for donations or charge for consumables.
All this energy and these ideas could also be a great chance to discuss larger fundraising plans as a community.
Hosting a BBQ or dinner party can be a great way of bringing people together for our great cause. You could ask for donations, hold a raffle, play games or simply brainstorm for fundraising ideas as a group.
