20 May 2016
The month of June has a few celebrations to offer including Alzheimers month, plus Small Charity Week. These fundraising events will create many opportunities for you to get involved, as well as other great events across the UK. So choose a charity to raise money for or choose an event you’d like to be a part of and start raising money for a great cause. We’ve rounded up some of our favourites with the key details and web addresses so you can easily sign up and take part!
Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month
Throughout the month of June 2016
Over 47 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimers, and this month the charity is making you go purple in support of the cause. 20th of June is the longest day this year and on that day they’re asking you to show your support and host a fundraising event. Whether you run, host a raffle, sky dive, swim, paint or host a tea party- do it to support those with Alzheimers this month.
Small Charity Week
13th – 18th June 2016
There are serval themed day events running throughout the week, which you can find on their website, but they encourage you to run your own event for a small charity and get it promoted on their site! It can be hard for small charities to stand out of the crowd in a market of big, worldwide non-profits. But if you have a local charity close to your heart, spread the work throughout national charity week!
