Get involved

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.

Ben:

“Sell some of your unwanted clothes and give PhysCap the proceeds”

Emma K:

“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”

David:

“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”

Emma E:

“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!”
