Are you gearing up for Pyjama Party week which kicks off this Saturday? We hope your onesies are at the ready!

This year, the number of you signing up to take part has been overwhelming. We are so excited to see the imaginative fundraising ideas that you all come up with! If you’ve signed up but haven’t made plans yet it’s time to get those thinking caps on!

Over the last week or so we’ve been trying to call as many of you as we can to see if we can help or offer any support with your event. If you still need inspiration, check out our ‘Ideas generator’.

We’ve designated Friday 24 October as our Pyjama Day – what are you going to do? If you’re planning a night in with friends, you can now create the ultimate foodie Pyjama Party with a little help from our amazingly talented Headliner and winner of Celebrity Masterchef 2014, Sophie Thompson. She has tailored her perfect night-in menu for a PJ party event exclusively for us, and you can get the recipes here. From mouthwatering flatbreads to sweetcorn fritters and a gooey brownie, Sophie’s food is absolutely delicious and will make your event a night to remember! Do send in pics of your Pyjama Party night in, especially if you use Sophie’s menu.

You can either email us pics at, share them on our Facebook page or tweet them to us @BrainAppeal. It sounds obvious, but after your event, don’t forget to send in the money you’ve raised! It’s not too late to join in the fun either, click here.
