Suffolk Mind Bake Off
Organise your own Suffolk Mind Bake Off any day and time of the year. It can be held anywhere, perhaps the office, your school or home. The aim is to raise awareness of mental health, fundraise for Suffolk Mind, and encourage people to think about their own wellbeing. To get involved you just need:
- A group of people to bake delicious treats.
- A downloaded score sheet, which people can donate £1 (or however much they like) towards.
- Rate each others bakes on taste, looks and creativity to find the overall winner.
For more details email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take up a challenge
You may be planning a team challenge or something more personal, a challenge can be different for all of us. Whether you are thinking of doing a sponsored skydive, a sponsored walk or even committing to giving up a bad habit, get in touch.
We want to support you through your challenge and can help with any resources you might need. We will provide a supporter t-shirt and can help with promotion to help you achieve your goal and raise awareness along the way.
Fundraise in the community
You could organise an event at work, in a local community group or amongst friends and family. You probably have some amazing ideas but if you are looking for some inspiration, here are some events people have held recently to support us:
- Musical Concert
- Charity Ball
- Pamper evening
- Bake Sale
- Folk evenings
Whatever type of event you are planning – large or small – we are keen to hear how we can get involved if you need us. We can come and talk about our charity work, provide literature and promotional material, and collection buckets and tins.
If you’d like more information about how you can fundraise for us, email email@example.com or call 0300 111 6000.
