What you can do

Fundraise for us in whichever way you choose: baking, gaming, birthday donations, quizzes and raffles, head shaves and sponsored runs. There's no end of ideas!

Popular ideas to get you started

Getting together with friends, family and neighbours (in person or online) or taking on a personal challenge is a great way to support us - and it feels good too. It doesn't need to be complicated - often the simplest ideas work best.

You might want to do something on your own, or with your friends and colleagues. Or perhaps you're part of choir, community group or sports club. There are plenty of ways to raise money and get everyone involved. Here are some popular ideas:

Auctions and raffles
These can be very effective at raising money - and easy to do online versions. You will find many local businesses who are happy to donate prizes too. Ask our community fundraising team about this.

Quiz nights
Question 1: What's a fun way to get people together and raise money for West Sussex Mind at the same time? Answer: Have a quiz night! Again, online versions are proving popular and they are simple to organise.

Gaming night
Get your friends over - or do online - and get gaming. There are several ways to raise money while gaming. Find out more here.

Cake sales and coffee mornings
Who doesn't enjoy a slice of cake? These are simple and a great way to get people together.

Birthday donations
Ask your friends and family to make a donation to West Sussex Mind this year instead of buying you a present. You can set up a birthday donations page through Just Giving here.

Sponsored slim/run/cycle/head shave...
Pick your challenge or event and ask everyone to support you. You can set up a Just Giving page for it too.

In a group, club or team? Maybe you could...
Hold a family fun day
Put on a quiz
Hold a charity football match
Have a sponsored zumbathon or boot camp
Climb the Three Peaks
Put on a charity golf day.

Day in and day out, we're continuing to help people with mental health problems. We couldn't do it without fundraising by our amazing supporters. Why not set up your own event - it could be the best fun you've had all year
