Fundraise your way

You don't have to jump out of a plane or run a marathon to raise money for Tourettes Action, and in fact, a cake sale or quiz night can be just as successful in terms of fundraising.

Your options for events to organise are limited only by your imagination. Here are some ideas:

  • Ask your school to organise a non-uniform day in aid of TA.
  • Organise a cake sale or coffee morning, raising money by selling cakes and tea at work, school or home.
  • Ask friends and family to donate to TA instead of sending you a birthday card, or even presents.
  • Hold a pub quiz and why not include a raffle to boost the funds.
