Let's put the fun back in fundraising!
Whether you want to run marathons (or want others to run them), walk in wellingtons full of custard or stage a themed party, there’s an event for everyone who wants to make life better for people with mental health problems.
We’ll help you fundraise, and can give you all the support you need to make your event a resounding success.
In July, our Trust received over £13,000 in public support when the family of a former patient launched a remarkable fundraising campaign for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services Aquarius Ward at Springfield Hospital.
Sophie, who sadly passed away in May 2016, spent time at Aquarius Ward had admired the “remarkable dedication and care of the staff” that had looked after her. Sophie’s family wanted to honour her wishes by supporting the Trust’s Charity to help other young people going through the same experiences.
Chief Executive David Bradley said “We are humbled that Sophie’s family chose to honour her memory in this way. The outpouring of support from the public is a testament to her life as well as the hard working staff we have on the ward. These donations will help make life better for patients and ensure we can continue helping to improve people’s lives.”

Tim Tolcher's 220 mile cycle raised over £3,000 in donations
Tim Tolcher cycled 220 miles in 24 hours with no stops from London to Ilfracombe on 7th July 2016 with no training. He started this ambitious trek in order to fundraise in memory of Sophie Bennett, a dear family friend (see above). All the funds raised will go straight to the Trust charity. Tim has so far raised over £3,000. You can still donate to Tim's fundraiser here.
In June a team from the Trust joined in the London Nightrider Challenge to raise money for the Trust’s Charity.
This was a 100km route around London during the night starting at the Leo Valley VeloPark. The route took in as many sights as possible including Piccadilly circus, Trafalgar Square, Houses of Parliament, Little Venice, Albert Hall, the London Eye and the O2.
Overall the night riders raised a fantastic £1 million. You can show your support here - Donate Now
