DIY Events


Challenge yourself and organise your own event!

Join #TeamBrainAppeal fundraisers across the UK, organising their own events to raise money for The National Brain Appeal. Our amazing supporters put together a variety of activities, from pyjama parties, golf days, sponsored hair cuts, to bake sales, quiz nights and sponsored walks.

Whatever you have in mind, our friendly team is on hand to give you all the materials, tips and advice you need to make your fundraising event a huge success. The money you raise will help the 12.5 million people in the UK living with a neurological condition.

We’re here to help kickstart your event, so if you would like more information, please click here  and we’ll pop a fundraising pack in the post to you.

Organising your own fundraiser is simple and straightforward using our 5 simple steps.

1. Choose your event type
It is always best to create an event around your interests or hobbies, whether you’re a football fanatic or a keen artist. Another great way to decide on an event idea is to base it around themes throughout the year such as Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, etc. However if you’re struggling for ideas, please check out our fundraising tips included in our fundraising pack.

2. It’s all in the planning
The key to a successful event is to properly prepare. Take your time and try to plan as much in advance as you can, that way you can raise even more for The National Brain Appeal. We’ve put together some safety and legal tips to guide you.

3. Shout about it
You’ve chosen your event, you’ve put in all the planning, now it’s time to shout about it and let everyone know what you’re up to! Start by creating your JustGiving page and share it with your friends and family using social media and email.

We can help your with promotion by sending you poster templates, leaflets and balloons.

4. Pay in your money
You can pay in your money via cheque to ‘The National Brain Appeal’, via bank transfer (call us for details on 020 3448 4724) or drop off your donations at our office in Queen Square – we always love meeting our fundraisers!

5. Thank you! Your donation will make a difference…
