Welcome to #TeamSurvive

Together, we can make a lasting difference for survivors of sexual trauma across York, North Yorkshire, and the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Download our full Fundraising Pack here or email our Fundraising Team for more information, tips and advice on how to make the most of your fundraising.

Every penny raised will go towards supporting survivors of sexual violence and abuse.

Make sure you keep in touch and let us know what you’re planning.


Fundraising Inspiration…

Be inspired or create your own fundraising event.

Bake off
Love baking? Whip up a batch of yummy cakes and tray bakes and ask your friends, family or colleagues to donate for a treat.
Top tip: Get the kids involved for a fun weekend activity!

Sports Day
If you have access to a playing field, consider inviting your friends/family/community down for a day of sport. You don’t need to be David Beckham! You could make it a throwback sports day and host egg and spoon races, sack races, three-legged races, or make it a virtual sports day with games like Fifa.

Games Night
Charades, Monopoly, computer games, chess… Whatever your choice, you can make a night of it with friends and family.

Open Garden
Especially proud of your garden or allotment? Why not open it to the public and let them enjoy the fruits of your labour.
Top tip: If you have extra produce, you may consider an honesty box where people can leave a donation for your produce.

Movie Night
Have your own cinema experience in your living room! Consider a theme for the evening and provide treats based on the film.

Take part in a challenge
You don’t have to organise an event yourself. You could take part in a marathon, sky-dive, walk the Yorkshire three peaks, or various other challenges. Try asking your friends, family and colleagues for sponsorship.


Don’t forget to spread the word…

The more you talk about your fundraising, the more successful you will be. You could:

  • Contact your local newspaper, social media pages or radio before the event, and afterwards too, and include photos if you can.
  • Use your workplace/university/college noticeboards or intranet to get more people involved.
  • Tag Survive on Facebook, X (Twitter), or Instagram and let us know what you are doing. With your permission, we could share your story on our socials, our website, or even in our newsletter.

Please note: Never give out your address to anyone that you do not know.
