Sign up to Sleep Easy 2018:

Our annual sponsored Rough Sleep, is taking place on Friday 23rd March 2018 at Coventry Rugby Club. Participants will sleep in a cardboard box at the event, from 7 pm  to 7 am the following day. By making their ‘beds’ for the night within the stadium grounds, the intrepid band of fundraisers will help create positive futures for even more young people. Register online today.

If you want to are organise your own fundraising or sponsored event at your home, school, church, YMCA or place of work, we really appreciate your support. If you want to raise money for us and are stuck for ideas here are a few to get you started:

  • Quiz  or a fashion show

Organise a quiz or fashion show and sell tickets. Not only is it a great way to raise money, it’s also good fun!

  • Afternoon Teas/Coffee Mornings

Why not get baking and have people round for a coffee morning or afternoon tea? You can ask people for a small donation or hold a raffle and sell tickets.

  • Car Boot Sales

Set up a table to raise vital funds for the YMCA at a car boot sale and sell your unwanted bric-a-brac.

Email us with your plans and ideas and we will do what we can to rasie awareness of your event, events@ymca-cw.org.uk
