Organise your own event

We’re working hard to ensure the best possible outcomes for premature and sick babies. But without amazing supporters like you, this simply wouldn’t be possible.

Many thanks for choosing to fundraise for us, on behalf of not only ourselves, but all the babies and families we support too. No matter how big or small, the money you raise will help us give the best possible care, support and hope to almost 1000 babies and their families every year.

Whether you’re the next Mary Berry, love to host a dinner party or a karaoke star, there are lots of ways you can raise money to support us. Maybe you’d prefer to ask for donations rather than presents at your wedding or birthday party. Whatever you choose, you are making a huge impact on some of the littlest lives.

Follow these 5 steps to make your event a raging success:

1) Start planning!

Firstly, you need to decide what to do! When will you hold your event? What needs to be organised and who can help?

Here a few ideas to get you started:

  • host a cheese and wine evening
  • organise a quiz night
  • walk 60,000 steps for the 60,000 babies born prematurely in the UK each year
  • run a bake sale at your work or school
  • organise a music event
  • request donations instead of presents on your birthday
  • hike, swim, walk, cycle or climb your way around the UK or the world!

Feel free to get in touch to chat through any ideas, ask for advice or get some support!

2) Let us know!

Once you have decided on the type of event and date, make sure you let us know! We will send you our fundraising pack to ensure you have everything you need. We are a small, friendly and dedicated team and we would love to support you in any way we can.

3) Set up your Fundraising page

Set up your fundraising page via JustGiving and follow the easy step-by-step instructions to get yourself set up and ready to receive donations!

4) Promote your event

Time to get the word out about your event. The more, the merrier right?! You can get in touch with your friends, colleagues, the press and your local community. Social media, your personal networks and local media are all great ways to spread the word and get sponsorship.

Not sure where to start? Or prefer to stay out of the limelight? Get in touch with us for help and advice!

5) Thank everyone!

Don’t forget to thank everyone who contributed to or donated towards your event, and let them know how much you raised.

Most of all, please accept our most grateful thanks. We simply could not do what we do for premature and sick babies without the support of people like you. Thank you!
