You can fundraise by doing an event and asking people to sponsor you, no matter how large or how small the plan you have you will be surprised at what can be done. You could… run, cycle or swim, or bake, or car boot, or set up a charity shop in your school, or climb, or walk, or keep quiet, or sing, or play snooker, or wear 258 t-shirts at once.

The ideas are almost endless. Our A-to-Z image below may help you decide or you can come up with your own whacky idea.

If you are planning to undertake some challenge or fundraising event please get in touch with us and let us know. It is also worth asking at the company you work for if they have a corporate giving scheme. Many companies offer to double any donations received, it is worth asking them.

For other ideas on what you can do look at our fundraisers page and see what has already been done.

Corporate Support

At CASY we rely on the incredibly generous donations of individuals, local authorities and trusts to continue supporting children and young people within our communities. We are always keen to engage with businesses around Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire and feel corporate responsibility should be a mutually beneficial arrangement.

Supporting us can help contribute to motivation of your employees, it can provide a focus for the organisation and offer PR opportunities that can demonstrate that you are giving something back to local communities.

There area number of ways you can get involved:

  • Charity of the Year – if your organisation has a charity of the year scheme then why not consider CASY?
  • Donate prizes for raffles – we hold events throughout the year with raffle opportunities and are always on he lookout for prizes
  • Hold an event – you could consider holding your own fundraising event for us, this also acts an excellent team building opportunity
  • Payroll giving – this is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice. For more information visit payrollgiving.co.uk
  • Make a donation – the simplest way of showing your support and extremely appreciated!

If you are considering getting involved with our work then please contact Mick Mason and see how we can help.

School Support

Does your school have a dress down day for a charity?

If so, you could suggest they do it for CASY. The funds would be put to amazing use supporting children and young people when they most need it. At least one in ten of the children in a school will be affected by emotional and mental health issues, and the impact can affect the whole family. Good emotional health provides a solid foundation for children into later life.

We have been working hard to improve the emotional health of young people in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire for over 16 years and we do this against the backdrop of the public negative perception surrounding mental health.

Non-uniform days can help us in two ways:

  • They can provide much needed funds to ensure we can deliver services throughout the two counties in order to meet the increasing demand.
  • Plus, the day raises awareness about mental and emotional health issues which will help increase the acceptability within society of people affected by mental health problems.
