Over the years we have helped countless children enjoy a better quality of life. Here are a few of their stories.
We’re a charity run completely by volunteers and funded wholly by donations and fundraising.
So whether it’s running a marathon, jumping out of a plane or walking across hot coals in fancy dress, our personal and corporate sponsors do us proud when it comes to raising funds.
If you want to get involved, there are loads of ways you can help PhysCap – and remember, every penny you raise will go directly to improving the lives of children who really need our help.
Whether it’s a sponsored silence, a bring and buy sale, or a sponsored diet – here at PhysCap we’ve tried them all. Some of our committee share their suggestions for fundraising ideas.
“Sell some of your unwanted clothes and give PhysCap the proceeds”
“Why not invite all your friends over for a cinema night? Provide them with popcorn and an old movie, and charge them for their place on your sofa”
“Turn a regular dress-down Friday in your office into something a bit more fun – ask everyone to wear the most clashing / bad-taste clothes they can and for the privilege give us a small donation”
“Host a clothes-swapping evening. Invite all your friends to bring some of their old clothes and accessories to swap for others – put on a few nibbles, open a few bottles and charge for entry!”
Or why not look into one of the following options?
Gift us in your will – leave a legacy that will help others when you’re gone. Find out more here http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/individuals/giving/will.htm
Payroll giving – talk to your employer about setting up a tax-saving payroll giving scheme, whereby a donation of your choosing comes straight out of your pre-tax salary to PhysCap every month. Find out more here
We welcome support from local businesses large and small. And we’re lucky to have some great corporate sponsors who we couldn’t do without!
Over the past 12 months, our corporate partners have taken part in marathons, joined our zumbathon and football tournaments and held office dress down days, making it possible for us to help many more children across Yorkshire.
Having a shared focus for fundraising is a great source of motivation and teambuilding for employees – and when their efforts are helping local children it’s even more rewarding!
We work with our corporate partners to identify fundraising opportunities for them to take part in; whether that’s joining in with our high profile events, individual fundraising or team events.
Here are some of our fantastic partners:
Whether you want to adopt PhysCap as your annual charity partner or just help with some one-off fundraising for us – we’d be delighted to have you on board.
