However you choose to fundraise, please let us know what you’re doing and how we can help.

Organising an event in aid of Sobell House?

If you’re organising an event in aid of us, please get in touch with the fundraising team. We can help you to advertise your event, provide Sobell House materials to help decorate such as balloons, and provide fundraising equipment such as collecting boxes or buckets.

Taking on a sponsored challenge for Sobell House?

Please visit our find a challenge page to discover some local and further afield events which you could take part in and help raise vital funds.

Alternatively, you may prefer to set your own challenge. It could be walking 5km every day for a month, completing an ultramarathon, doing a workout in fancy dress – the options are endless!

Whichever challenge you choose we recommend setting up a JustGiving page to collect online sponsorship.

If your fundraising involves making, serving or selling food, we recommend reading through the advice from the Food Standards Agency on their website here to stay safe and make sure you’re following best practice with your food preparation.
