Raising money for Beatbullying
Organising a fundraising event or activity is a great way to get involved with anti-bullying week, raise awareness and make a real difference to the lives of young people facing the often devastating consequences of bullying. You can do lots of things to raise money for Beatbullying, on your own, with friends or in your school. Be creative and you are sure to have a good time whilst doing a great thing. Whether you are organising an own clothes day, holding a bake sale or coffee morning, putting on a concert or doing a sponsored walk, big or small your contribution will enable us continue to provide our bullying prevention and support work, such as the CyberMentors programme - helping thousands of young people who are coming to us in crisis.
Here are some ideas to get you started...and don't forget to download our fundraising pack!
