Organising an event

How You Can Help By Getting Involved

Have fun!
Organise events that will be fun for you, your friends, family or colleagues. If it’s a well thought out event, aimed at the right people – you’ll find that more people will want to come and will be happy to donate.
Some ideas : Ladies ‘pamper’ night, darts, pool or 5 aside football competition, quiz night, themed party, masquerade ball, murder mystery party, golf match.

Give something back
It is good to offer people something in return for their money. If you offer a service or a prize in return for their donation you may find that the same people will keep coming back.

Publicise your event
Get the local press involved. It’s great to let people in your area know what you are doing, and also raises awareness of BARC and animal welfare. It is a good opportunity to promote your Charity Giving webpage and any fundraising events you are planning. We also provide you with sample press releases in our fundraising pack.

Fundraising materials
Materials will help your event stand out and will also help to promote the cause. We can provide you with fundraising materials such as collection boxes and tins, lapel stickers, fundraising authorisation letter, balloons, leaflets and posters (subject to availability).

A big thank you!
Thank you again for all of your efforts – we really rely on the support of people like you to continue our important work. Your help will enable us to carry on positively addressing animal welfare in our region.
