From an Auction of Promises to a ‘Zzzz’ competition with Hill walking and Golf days in between, the HELP Appeal’s new fundraising pack contains the A to Z of advice and ideas on how to raise money in a fun way, that will capture people’s imagination. The HELP Appeal is the only charity in the country dedicated to funding hospital helipads.
With construction on Queen’s Medical Centre helipad in Nottingham due to be completed next year, there is still plenty of time to make a real difference by downloading a pack now at www.helpappeal.org.uk or by calling freephone 0800 389 8999 to raise money for a local cause that help will save lives.
Robert Bertram, Chief Executive of the HELP Appeal:
‘Fundraising is brilliant way to have some fun whilst raising funds for our helipad campaign. But helipads are expensive and with a grant of £500,000 to reach in Nottingham, every cake sale, cracker eating competition or darts match counts.
‘As we don’t receive a single penny in Government or National Lottery funding, charitable donations are one of the best ways we can ensure helipads will be built or upgraded.
‘Our new fundraising pack is full of ideas that will inspire you to put together your own special money-raising event, which will help save more lives and ensure you have some fun along the way.’
Hannah Pollard has already used the new fundraising pack to raise awareness of her trek along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru starting on 22 April. She said:
‘The pack has proved invaluable. It’s never short of suggestions on how to publicise the trek I’m about to do. The training has been challenging but I’m so looking forward to the feeling I’ll get when I reach the top knowing that I’ve helped to raise money for hospital helipads all over the UK.
