We need your help to support the many vulnerable young people caring for a parent with a mental illness. There’s no end to the ways you can fundraise for Our Time. In the past people have skydived and even trekked the Sahara Desert, but it doesn’t need to be quite as extreme – unless you want a challenge! Even small events to raise funds like sponsored walks or bake sales help to make a big difference.
All you need to do is decide what kind of event or fundraising activity you want to hold.
You can set up a BTDonate fundraising page for Our Time where it’s easy to create and promote your page, tell your story and get sponsors. BTDonate also pays the money directly into Our Time’s account after your activity has finished, so it makes the process easy.
It’s worthwhile raising awareness of what you’re doing, be that on social media, posters or face-to-face. If you are using social media, make sure you add our Twitter handle (@ourtimecharity), or post on our Facebook page and we can help to promote what you are doing.
Please do share your photos from the day with us – we love to see what you’re up to and we can advertise your event through our networks. We also get an opportunity to say thanks for your hard work.
Sending us the money you’ve raised
If you haven’t used BT Donate, which transfers the money directly into Our Time’s account, you can send us a cheque to:
Our Time, 3 Cobble Mews, London N6 6BT
Please use your name as the reference otherwise we won’t know who it’s from, and be sure to let us know about your fundraising by emailing us firstname.lastname@example.org.
