We’re gearing up for a Summer of fun and fundraising and putting it all into your hands. This summer, you can decide your own personal challenge and help raise money for the Bevern Trust.
Our fundraising target for the Summer Challenge is to help our support staff give our residents a voice. It’s so important to capture and evidence how our residents have been throughout the day and having easy access to devices such as ipads, tablets or laptops means our staff can log and feedback all of those vital details, ensuring that we can provide the best possible personalised care.
We’ve got loads of suggestions for your personal Challenge but ultimately, it’s up to you what you do – anything from a sporting challenge or giving up your favourite food, to baking, art, craft or plant sales and everything in between!
All our residents will benefit from your generous fundraising this summer so, what are you waiting for? Let’s meet the Challenge!
These are just some suggestions to get you going but your Summer Challenge is your choice!
Quiz Night Challenge – be the host of your own quiz and have fun creating a bespoke quiz for friends and family. Go virtual or hold it outside on a sunny evening.
Go for a run – set your goal at 5k, 10k or even 20k. Whatever works for you! Share your route via Strava and let others join in your fun.
Hold your own cookbook party – choose a recipe book and invite everyone to cook something from it. Meet up to discuss the book and the bakes, making a donation at the same time.
Daily exercise challenge – maybe try a different sport or online class each day for a month?
For the green fingered among you, hold plant or vegetable sales during the summer months.
Offer your services as a charity car washer!
Hold a Baby Photo competition at your workplace, school or church – willing participants pay an entry fee and provide a photo of themselves as a baby. Everyone taking part then tries to guess who each baby grew up to be. The person who gets the most correct wins.
Host a themed BBQ – James Bond, Mamma Mia, Alice in Wonderland, Dad’s Army? Take your pick and send out the invitations!
Is your garden your pride and joy? Share it with others and open to visitors. Serve refreshments to raise even more funds.
Hold a bake sale for colleagues and friends, or even bake to order!
